Southampton Solent University is the latest name for a highly vocational higher education institution that can trace its history back over 150 years as a focus for education in the South of England. Situated in the centre of the bustling city of Southampton, adjacent to green parkland and the full range of urban entertainments, the University is dedicated to providing its students with the best range of practical scholarship available anywhere. We take pride in our friendly environment, where our academic stars work closely with the students to develop their skills and learning.

Our 16,000 students study for a wide range of undergraduate degrees, spanning the alphabet from Art, Business, and Computing to Tourism, Yacht Design and Watersports. We also offer many master's degrees and PhDs, plus a variety of professional and short course training. We are located in a major city south of London, the region with the most developed knowledge economy in the UK and the county – Hampshire - with the third highest density of knowledge businesses. So it’s not surprising that Southampton’s two universities play a major role in sustaining and developing this continuing success. As the home of the Ordnance Survey, IBM Hursley Park Research Centre and Roke Manor Research, the city and its surroundings have every reason to welcome the growth of knowledge industry.

Facing the Solent and Isle of Wight, based around the estuaries of the famed rivers Test and Itchen, Southampton has a rich maritime history and was the departure point for the Mayflower and (somewhat less auspiciously) the Titanic. The Solent provides some of the finest yachting and sailing water in the world, as evidenced by the vast numbers using it every day, and Southampton is the leading UK centre for cruise liners. The New Forest begins just outside the city, with its superb cycle paths, wild horses and the justly famed Beaulieu National Motor Museum.

We have every confidence of providing an exciting, worthwhile and intellectually stimulating conference, based in our newly refurbished conference centre. Equally, we have no doubt you will find Southampton, the Solent, and the broader countryside both interesting and captivating.

Come and join us at ECKM 2008, in Southampton!
