Any researcher attached to a UK University, academic institution or R&D group in industry or commerce may visit the Institute for up to 2 days without an invitation, in order to attend seminars or to work with colleagues. Simply sign in at the Institute's reception desk giving your name, academic affiliation and which programme you are interested in.
There is no need to warn the Institute in advance that you will be coming, but it will make it easier for us to provide you with facilities if you send a brief email to firstname.lastname@example.org beforehand telling us when you intend to arrive.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer office space, accommodation or meals during such short visits, but visitors are welcome to use the common areas of the building and our library. This may include web access via the library computers, although of course long-stay visitors and those attending workshops have priority.
If your visit unexpectedly extends beyond 2 days then we would ask you to arrange for a programme organiser to issue you with a formal invitation.
