Behavioural Analysis 2022 will take place at the University of Northampton.

The university is proud to be launching its Forensic Psychology degree course this year, so what better setting for a conference that merges academic research with operational perspectives on the use of behavioural analysis techniques to identify negative intent?

University of Northampton

The university is one of the youngest in the UK but is already leading the way in adding value to society and has won multiple awards for its work in this area.
The conference will take place on the Waterside Campus which opened in September 2018.

Location

Northampton is centrally located in England.

International delegates may elect to fly to Birmingham International Airport, which is only a 45-minute direct train journey from Northampton.

UK-based delegates may either drive – there is parking on the campus – or let the train take the strain.

For those travelling by road, Northampton is off the M1 motorway, making it easily accessible to those coming from north and south alike. Even for delegates and speakers based in London, there is a direct train service from Euston with a journey time of less than one hour.

If you do arrive by train, the Waterside Campus is about a 20-minute walk from the station. Alternatively, Über operates in the town and there are local taxis available.

Accommodation

There are a limited number of rooms available at the Sunley Hotel, which is located on the Waterside Campus of the university. Rates are £65 B&B. But it’s a case of first-come first-served.

Off campus, the Premier Inn is a short walk from the venue. And, as always, hotel reservation websites such as Booking.com will offer many other options at a range of prices.

For those of you with a penchant for aviation, and up for a 20-minute drive each day, you might want to try out The Aviator – an art deco-styled hotel overlooking the grassy airfield of Sywell Aerodrome. It was formerly the original Pilots Clubhouse and Officers Mess during the Second World War.

To help plan their journeys to/from Northampton, international participants may wish to note the public transport options from Birmingham, London Luton Airport, St. Pancras International (Eurostar) and London Euston, together with routings from the other London airports. Click HERE

Northampton

Both the town of Northampton itself and the county of Northamptonshire have a range of activities and tourist attractions for visitors.

Take the time to visit the world’s biggest collection of shoes – Northampton is the men’s shoe-making capital of the world and has its own Shoe Museum; made-to-measure for James Bond & Prince Charles footwear remains a thriving local industry.

Northampton is home to the only surviving house in England designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Those interested in Grand Prix will be familiar with the name of the world-renowned Silverstone track, whilst rugby fans will know that Northampton Saints play their rugby at Franklins Gardens.

And, amongst a variety of transport-themed museums in the county is the Sywell Aviation Museum. Sywell village boats one of the best General Aviation Airfields in the UK and its museum is packed full of artefacts, photographs, aero engines, models, uniforms, and weapons.

The more active amongst you might be interested in visiting the UK’s oldest theme park or, perhaps, Europe’s biggest urban sports venue – Adrenaline Alley – and Europe’s longest zip wires!
