The 12th UKACC International Conference on Control will be held in the city of Sheffield, in United Kingdom. Sheffield is the England’s greenest city with stunning landscapes. Its rich cultural attractions make it as one of the most exciting cities to emerge from the rapidly regenerating North of England. The city brings together the great outdoors and the city culture.
There is a vibrant multicultural population, more parks and woodland than any other UK city, galleries and museums, astonishing Victorian and modern architecture, the best pubs in Britain, stylish restaurants, cosy cafes and coffee shops, seven hills, five rivers and over two million trees.
The conference will be held in the newly constructed Diamond, home to the faculty of engineering teaching facilities at the University of Sheffield. The design creates an environment that promotes the university’s vision and mission in modern interdisciplinary research, teaching and learning.
The Diamond has an aluminium diamond shaped facade exterior, with galvanised steel sheets and glass; all of which have been recycled. It has been designed as a “smart” building allowing detailed control of energy management, and includes a central naturally ventilated atrium and rainwater harvesting.
Inside, the six-storey Diamond boasts specialist teaching facilities including a range of lecture theatres, seminar rooms, open-plan learning spaces, library and IT services, and space for informal study including a cafe.
The Diamond won the Design through Innovation award in the 2016 Yorkshire and Humber Region Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors awards, and was also shortlisted for the Yorkshire awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects.
