Also taking place
Tour of ChipIr at ISIS - there will be an opportunity to visit the new ChipIr neutron radiation facility at the ISIS Neutron and Muon source during the workshop.
Students forum - students have the chance to present their work and have feedback from experts in the reliability research field
Round table - a round table will be organized to discuss possible collaborations and how to avance the knowledge on reliability for self-driving cars.
The local area
Out and about - Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is only a short travel time from the town of Abingdon and the historic university city of Oxford and within easy reach of some of Britain's major attractions.
Accommodation- we have arranged accommodation on a first come basis for the workshop at Ridgeway House which is on the Harwell Campus next to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
Getting here - instruction on getting the Laboratory and the ISIS Neutron and Muon facility can be found here.
