Oxford offers a beautiful location with an amazing heritage. The city is packed full of college buildings dating back to the 13th century that are parts of Oxford University. The city has excellent connections to both London and London airports, making it a great location for an international meeting. Buses run to London Heathrow Airport every 15 minutes with a journey time of 60 minutes, and to London Gatwick Airport every hour.

Oxford is a university city located 80 kilometres west of London. The city is known worldwide as the home of Oxford University, the oldest university in the English-speaking world.

The University of Oxford (www.ox.ac.uk) has many conference venues because of its numerous auditoriums, lecture halls, decent accommodations and spectacular dining and recreational facilities, some of which have appeared in many film settings (conference-oxford.com). During the summer when students are on vacation, many colleges are able to provide accommodation for hundreds of guests in picturesque surroundings. In addition, the colleges have superb catering teams experienced in providing for large banquets and conference dinners. All these features make the University an ideal venue for 7OSME.

The organising team members are actively working on various issues related to the conference, and details will be announced as soon as all the logistics have been completed.

The local organising committee is fully aware that the success of the conference is dependent on your active participation. This committee will be expanded to give a balance of expertise needed to provide the necessary logistics and technical expertise. We will create a technical committee to cover the conference themes and organise the presentations, abstract and talk selection etc., which will include artists, scientists, mathematicians, engineers and educators.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Oxford in 2018.
