YR-SOC 2007 will be held at the University of Leicester, at the University's conference site in Oadby. More information on Leicester can be found at and location information can be found at the University conference website.

Located in the heart of England, Leicester is a truly multi-cultural city. The city is a historic meeting place. For centuries people of different races and cultures have gathered in Leicester, creating a rich and unique heritage. This diversity continues today. The city's thriving ethnic minority community accounts for more than a third of Leicester's population and continues to enrich city life.

YR-SOC 2007 will happen in New Hall, a brand new building opened as part of a significant development at the University's Halls of Residence in Oadby, a peaceful suburb in south-east Leicester. New Hall has been built on the site of Villiers Hall, which is still on some of the University's old maps.

Registration will happen in the downstairs bar area of the Facilities Building. The workshop will happen in the upstairs Tilton and Swithland Suite, with posters and coffee breaks in the Oakham and Rothley Suite.

In the evenings, the student bar is open and delegates are requested to have their name badges ready to identify themselves to the bar staff.


In addition to tea and coffee during breaks, lunch is provided for delegates over the two days. The workshop dinner is on Monday evening and will aim to give delegates a true taste of Leicester. Dinner is not provided on the Tuesday evening, however the centre of Leicester is easily reachable by bus or taxi, and Leicester has many fine restaurants to offer. More information will be included in the welcome pack.
