About the University

The 2016 EACS conference will be hosted by the University of Sheffield in their new multi million pound engineering building, the Diamond.

The Diamond is a new jewel in the University’s crown. This £81 million building, The University of Sheffield’s largest ever investment in teaching and learning, is a fantastic place for modern interdisciplinary teaching. As well as specialist engineering teaching facilities, the building also houses a range of lecture theatres, seminar rooms, open-plan learning spaces, library services and social spaces, including a café.

About Sheffield

Sheffield has a rich industrial heritage, which makes it a fantastic place to live, work and study, but it is also a modern vibrant city, which has seen major redevelopment over the past decade while still managing to keep its unique character.

As you’d expect from England’s fourth largest city there’s always something going on, but Sheffield’s compact city centre and thriving suburbs means it has a friendly neighbourhood feeling and a great sense of community.

Sheffield is also one of the UK’s greenest cities, with over 150 woodland areas and 50 parks. The spectacular peak district is close by, making it easy to get away from the city and explore the countryside.
