The University of Nottingham

The Workshops will take place at the University of Nottingham . The University is in the UK top 10 of a world league of research, and has a student population of over 30,000. It is a multi-campus university, with three UK campuses and a fourth campus, opened in 2000, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In September 2004, the University admitted students to its second international campus, located in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, and thus became the first foreign university to establish a campus in China.
