OXFORD - City in England
Oxford, a city in central southern England, revolves around its prestigious university, established in the 12th century. The architecture of its 38 colleges in the city’s medieval center led poet Matthew Arnold to nickname it the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’. University College and Magdalen College are off the High Street, which runs from Carfax Tower (with city views) to the Botanic Garden on the River Cherwell.
The Cherwell and Thames rivers meander through town, and are popular for punting on flat-bottomed riverboats and collegiate rowing. The Oxford University Parks and Christ Church Meadow are expansive green areas beside the water. Off Broad Street are Balliol and Trinity Colleges, and the university’s main Bodleian Library complex, including the circular Radcliffe Camera building. The Ashmolean Museum is home to Greek and Egyptian archaeological finds and a wealth of fine art, including pre-Raphaelite paintings. The Pitt Rivers Museum offers anthropological displays, while the Museum of Natural History features dinosaur skeletons.

Why Does ARICON Offer Free Tours During Each Conference?
In an era of globalization and multicultural sensitivity, study abroad programs are mushrooming all over the academic world. They would grow even further if academics had more time and resources to visit worldwide destinations to prepare future study abroad programs for their students. Our conferences offer the perfect opportunity to blend in presentations with organized visits to locations that would make excellent venues for study abroad programs. Andy Warhol’s traditional fifteen minutes of fame — on the podium — stretch into days of academic interaction and discovery.
It defies logic to treat conference venues as isolated academic silos when they may also double up as potential venues for study abroad programs. As a result, we promote each conference as inseparable from its geographical location, history and culture. We work hard to find sponsors in each conference’s geographical area that offer generous hospitality and tourism packages in parallel with our conference presentations.
We make our attendees’ potential clear to our sponsors. Many graduate students and professors who attend academic conferences have a lifelong career in academia in front of them. As a result, each attendee has the potential to multiply the number of future visitors to a conference’s wider geographical area. “We have memories so that we might have roses in December,” wrote Scottish novelist James Barrie.
Without the opportunity to interact and share one’s research and ideas, what is the point of attending an academic conference? There is no shortage of academic papers on the internet and at the libraries within our universities. One doesn’t need a conference to access academic research. Printed academic papers allow the reader to digest carefully instead of chasing a speaker racing against the clock. To understand what a modern conference should be like, we invite you to attend an ARICON conference and experience.
Poster sessions allow delegates to move around the room and discuss their research.
I’d love to attend the ARICON conferences again… I
am interested as at ARICON ZURICH I tend to meet
people from universities and locales around the
world. While there, I got two invitations to speak…
in Netherlands and Turkey.
