Cycling & Society 2017 – Overview

The 2017 Cycling and Society Symposium will focus on Cities To Share – how cycling and society interact. It will be held on the 7th and 8th September, at Imperial College London. We apologise for the short notice on the new venue and for any inconvenience caused to participants.


Registration is being managed through Eventbrite. Please Register through Eventbrite by 31st August.


Thank you to all those who have submitted abstracts. We are able to offer a varied and interesting programme that cover a range of important themes in cycling research. The programme is being finalised: a draft programme is available.

The event will start at 10am (registration from 9:30) on Thursday 7th September and run until 16:15 on Friday 8th, followed by the internal committee meeting for those wish to be more involved in the running of the network and the symposium. There will also be a social event on Thursday evening.


The 2017 symposium will be held at the Royal School of Mines on the South Kensington Campus of Imperial College London (campus map as pdf).


There are accommodation options in the Halls of the College (generally more affordable than the general offer), and of course there are plenty of options in the regular booking websites like Hostelworld, Booking or Expedia. Other budget options could be AirBnB or Coachsurfing.

Those of you who live in London and have an available space to offer to attendants, please send us an email so that we can arrange it. Those of you who would like to be hosted, please let us know as well, so that we can try to match you with hosts.
