2016 EAIR Forum Welcome

Welcome to the 38th Annual EAIR Forum Birmingham 2016

When and where?

From Wed 31 August until Sat 3 September 2016 at Birmingham City University, Birmingham, UK

Birmingham City University warmly welcomes you to participate in the 38th annual EAIR Forum. We are located in the centre of Birmingham, the UK’s second city. The City of Birmingham is regarded as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and is surrounded by some of the most typical and beautiful English countryside. With its wide range of facilities and rich cultural heritage, Birmingham is an ideal venue.

The Curzon Building, where the main business of the Forum will be held, opened in June 2015 and occupies an enviable position overlooking one of Britain’s newest city parks and adjoining the City’s ground-breaking science museum, ‘Thinktank’. Curzon Building is one of four new or refurbished buildings that together form the City Centre Campus.
