To those discussing train option.
If you plan on going from London Paddington.

You have the Heathrow Connect and Heathrow Express.

Heathrow Connect is cheaper, but on a Sunday is normally only an hourly service taking about 25mins leaving 12 minutes past the hour. £6.90 single or £11.90 day return.

Heathrow Express runs at a frequency of every 15minutes at 10/25/40/55 past the hour. Takes about 15mins. £15.50 single £29.00 return, or ask for a meet and greet ticket but I'm not 100% on this tickets restriction.

If you are travelling from further afield by train, you just need to buy a ticket to "Heathrow Rail"

A terminal does not need to be specified, from personal experience I would recommend you go to Heathrow Central (Terminals 1,2, and 3) and there is a bus from the Central Bus Station which when I last used it was free, and takes you near the hotels on the Bath Road.

If anyone has any train issues, get in touch with me and I will try and help you.

I just moved to London last week so I will very likely be attending. I am just wondering if a sort of schedule has been made out for the conference. Any idea of what topics will be discussed or is it going to just be a general floor open meet everyone kind of thing?

Thanks

As has been said earlier in this topic, a schedule will likely be posted at a later time when more people have registered and provided information on their individual presentations. It seems silly to compile a schedule before we know all the presentations.
