Follow this link to the Royal Holloway, University of London Online Shop - Registration has closed on August 14.

Note: If you have any trouble adding items to the basket, try refreshing the page.

The registration includes participation in the social events. Accommodation is not included in the registration fee. However, you can book accommodation at the University's student dormitories (recommended) during registration. See below for accommodation details.

We kindly ask each delegate to register individually under their name. The shop supports setting a different invoice address if necessary. If this is not feasible, e.g., due to procurement procedures, you still can register all participants in one go. In this case, please advise guido.schmitz@rhul.ac.uk of your booking number, the delegates' names, and dietary restrictions to manually amend the registration.


Recommended: Royal Holloway offers accommodation in modern student dormitories. All of these rooms are located on campus close to our conference venue. Out-of-hours check-in is possible throughout the night (please notify us if you plan to arrive late), but we kindly ask you to plan to arrive during office hours.

On the registration page, you will be provided with several options:

Please combine those options according to your needs. For example, if you arrive on Monday and leave on Friday, please book all three options.

If you travel with a partner, you can also upgrade the room to double occupancy (in which case you will get a double room, of course). Those upgrades are meant as add-ons to the accommodation booking from the list above, i.e., please book them in matching pairs. For example, if you arrive on Monday and leave on Friday, please book all three accommodation options from above plus all upgrades for double occupancy.

Check-in to on-campus accommodation: You can check in at the reception of The Hub which is signposted throughout the campus. On the day of arrival, your room will be available from 4pm. The reception is open 8am-8pm. Outside of these hours, check-in services are available through campus security using the red telephone next to the reception desk.

Workshop Session Submissions

Like the last in-person workshops in Stuttgart and Trondheim, this workshop will again consist of a series of pre-submitted and reviewed sessions and an unconference (barcamp-style) part to facilitate less formal exchange regarding ongoing work in the various standardization groups.

A Historic and Pictoresque Campus

The workshop takes place at Royal Holloway, University of London. The campus is located at the gates of London within 135 acres of beautiful parkland. The historic Founder's building has been opened by Queen Victoria herself in 1886. Sources suggest that she was quite amused when she attended the ceremony.

The scenic campus and the impressive main building has also been a recurring setting for many film and television productions, such as the "Avengers" and the current Netflix series "You".

The "Royal" Experience

For our main conference banquet, we will escape our fast-running daily routine and get together in Royal Holloways stunning picture gallery. We will wine and dine right beneath world-class Victorian paintings - a unique experience!

Modern Meets Historic

Our conference building symbolises our work to develop and use modern technology in a historically grown environment. The Shilling building is embedded in the historic campus as a futuristic beacon of progress.
