About Wolverhampton

The City of Wolverhampton is part of the Birmingham and Black Country conurbation and has a catchment of 1.73 million people within a 30 minute drive time.

This young and vibrant city with a population of 254,000 is one of the top ten growing economies in the UK and is currently enjoying record levels of private and public investment with £3.7 billion pounds being injected into regeneration projects citywide, including £992 million pounds either on site or planned in the city centre alone.

With enviable connectivity to the rest of the West Midlands and beyond, the city’s excellent road, rail and air links put Wolverhampton at the heart of Britain and Europe.

University of Wolverhampton is a leading modern university with a tradition of providing opportunity and academic excellence dating back nearly 190 years. Surrounded by the sites of the Industrial Revolution, and with central Birmingham only 20 minutes away by train or tram, it is an excellent location to reflect on the progress of science and education and related ‘postdigital challenges’.

As such, there are opportunities for the publication of presentations following the conference.
