How do I locate the conference?

In 2012s eLearning 2.0 was held in Brunel Business School's MBA Suite on the first floor of the Russell Building, the second building on the left from the entrance. This is the same venue as last year. We originally hoped to use the School's new building which you can see at the entrance, but they are sill putting the final touches to the furnishings. You can see the location of the Russell building on the Campus Map from the Downloads link.
