train stations, an international airport and the M5 close by.  It also has some 
of the best natural scenery in the country on its doorstep (e.g. Dartmoor, 
Exmoor and the Jurassic Coast) with Cornwall and the Eden Project only 1hr 30 
mins away.

Confirmed plenary speakers include:

 * Margaret Boden (Sussex)

 * Enaction: Challenges and Successes
 * Machine Learning in Water Systems
