FSE 2014 officially started on Monday (3 March) morning, but participants were invited to meet the workshop chairs and organisers in the Humphrey's Bar at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel London Kensington (one of the suggested hotels, located 1-2 minutes from the Gloucester Road tube station exit) for an informal Sunday evening get-together from 6pm, until around 8:30pm.
There were no organised social activies scheduled for Monday evening. We feel that participants are better off exploring the many attractions in London that best suit their preferences/budget, either on their own or in small groups. For ideas, you can for example check the VisitLondon or Time Out London websites. Members of the local organising committee would also be happy to make a few sugggestions during the workshop.
The workshop Rump Session was held on Tuesday afternoon (4:50pm - 5:50pm), with refreshments and snacks served in the foyer of the workshop theatre during the rump session talks. The workshop banquet was held on Tuesday evening, in the Queens Tower Rooms, Sherfield Building, Imperial College (5-min walk from the museum; see directions), starting at 7:30pm.
Note that FSE 2014 guest registration fee includes access to the social events above.
