June 14th – 16th, 2017, City and Guilds Building Rooms 650/651 and 640, Imperial College London, UK


The 3rd annual Nektar++ Workshop will bring together developers and users of all experiences to hear about new and future developments in Nektar++ and the exciting science and engineering being undertaken with the code.

The first two days will include a comprehensive programme of talks, which will be followed by a number of parallel informal group sessions allowing developers and users to discuss and work on specific aspects of the code.

Provisional Schedule

Talks are generally 15 minute presentations + 5 minute Q&A.

The workshop will be held in the City and Guilds Building, on the South Kensington Campus of Imperial College London in central London.

Getting to campus

Directions to campus are available from the Imperial College website. The nearest London Underground stations are South Kensington and Gloucester Road, which lie on the Piccadilly, Circle and District lines.

Getting to City and Guilds Building

The City and Guilds building is marked as building 29 on the South Kensington campus map. The building can be accessed from the main entrance to the College on Exhibition Road. From South Kensington station, take the underground walkway, past the V&A exit, to the end of the tunnel. Turn left onto Exhibition Road, cross Imperial College Road and enter the College at the main entrance through the revolving doors. Pass to the right of the security desk and take an immediate left. The lifts to the 6th floor can be found half way down the foyer area.


The workshop will take place across three adjacent rooms on the 6th floor of the City and Guilds Building:

  • Programme Sessions: The talks will be held in lecture theatre 640.
  • Refreshments and break-out sessions: The group sessions on the second day will be in rooms 649/650.

Signs will be posted to the rooms.


Imperial College is located in central London and well within reach of a wide variety of hotels. Imperial has a number of suggestions which you can find on the main College website.


The workshop is free but accommodation and the Dinner is not covered and expected to be paid by the person attending.
