Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security


SOUPS 2013 will be held at Northumbria University in Newcastle, UK. Northumbria is located in the heart of the historic City of Newcastle upon Tyne in the North East of England. The conference is taking place at Northumbria University Students Union, which is located in Newcastle City Centre.

Travel: Newcastle upon Tyne is a regional capital and is just two hours and forty minutes away from London by the fastest rail service, whilst Edinburgh (Scotland's capital) is only an hour away. Newcastle has its own International Airport, whilst regular ferry services operate to and from Northern Europe. Road travel, by coach or car, is particularly easy as Newcastle stands on the premier north-south route in the UK. Once in Newcastle itself, the extensive local public transport system, including the Metro (Tyneside's own underground), makes getting around very easy.

Hotels: We have worked with the NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau to offer a broad range of accommodation to suit all budgets. You can book your SOUPS accommodations online.
