Conference Arrangements

The conference lectures will be held in the James Clerk Maxwell Building of the University of Edinburgh. This building, which also houses the Mathematics and Statistics Department, is situated within the King's Buildings complex in the south of Edinburgh, a short bus ride from the centre of Edinburgh. Lunch, tea and coffee will be provided at the venue. This map shows the relative locations of the city centre, the Conference venue and accommodation. For details of how to get to Edinburgh, please use the links on our Travel Information page.

A full timetable will be posted on these pages early in 2000. The conference will start on the evening of Tuesday 4th April with an informal buffet combined with Registration at Pollock Halls. Lectures will start on Wednesday morning and continue to the morning of Saturday 8th. The programme will start again on Monday 10th and the final talks will be delivered on the morning of Friday 14th April.

We have reserved single study-bedrooms at Pollock Halls, a University of Edinburgh student residence just to the south-east of the city-centre. Some ensuite rooms may be available at an additional charge. Breakfast and evening meals will also be available there. Participants are also free to make their own arrangements for accommodation and ICMS staff will be happy to advise.

Financial matters

Registration Fee
The Registration fee is £65 and includes the cost of morning and afternoon refreshments during the conference. It is payable one month before the Conference begins.

Conference costs
The costs will be invoiced prior to the meeting and must be paid at the very latest at Registration.

(a) Residential Fee - £363
This covers dinner, bed and breakfast (in a standard room) from the evening of Tuesday 4th April to the morning of Friday 14th April (excluding dinner on the Saturday evening), and lunch for the 9 days of the conference. Should you opt for a significantly shorter stay than this, the invoice will be calculated to take account of this.

(b) Non-residential Fee - £78
To cover the Registration Buffet on Tuesday 4th and lunches during the Conference.

Financial Support
There are some funds available to support participants to the Conference. Applications should be sent together with your registration form.

(a) The EC have allocated a sum to assist EU nationals who are under the age of 35. The award will cover up to 100% of the conference costs, the Registration Fee and reasonable travel costs. The awards are limited in number and will be allocated by the organisers

(b) ICMS has funds from the LMS to assist UK mathematicians. These awards are unlikely to cover the total costs.

All Registration Forms and Applications for Financial Support should be with ICMS by Friday 4 February 2000. Those applying for financial support will be told if their application has succeeded during the first two weeks of February.

You will find the several formats of the registration and financial support forms here, including online submission.
