Conference Arrangements


The Conference will take place at Heriot-Watt University, a campus just to the west of Edinburgh (see here for more details). For more information on how to get to Edinburgh, please look at our Travel Pages.

Lectures will take place in the Cedar Suite.

We have reserved single study bedrooms (with private bathrooms) on the campus. Participants are also welcome to make their own accommodation arrangements and ICMS staff will be happy to advise.


The Programme will start with registration between 9.15 am and 10.45 am on the morning of Monday 8th January. There will be a free day on the Sunday and the meeting will finish late in the afternoon of Thursday 18th January.

A list of speakers and a timetable is available (see Scientific Programme).


Participants will receive a voucher to enable them to get meals in the Heriot Watt campus self-service dining room. All participants will be entitled to lunch and residential participants can also have dinner.

On Monday 8th, from 6.30pm, there will be a buffet in the College Lounge to which all participants are welcome.

On Tuesday 16th an excursion and informal conference dinner are planned. A coach will pick up at 2pm from Heriot Watt and take people to the National Gallery of Scotland. The Turner watercolours are on display during January. The Royal Musem of Scotland is a 10-15 minute walk away. Admission is free between 4.30pm and 8pm on Tuesdays. The conference dinner will be held in The Point Hotel, Bread Street. Although subsidised, there will be a charge of £10 per head. The coach will return the participants to Heriot Watt after the meal.

Financial matters

Registration Fee

The Registration fee is £65.

Conference Costs

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

(a) Residential Fee - £640
This covers bed and breakfast in a room with a private bathroom, from the evening of Sunday 7th January to the morning of Friday 19th January and all meals (excluding dinner on the evening of Saturday 13th and lunch on Sunday the 14th).

(b) Non-residential Fee - £150
To cover lunches and refreshment.

Financial Support

There are some funds available to support participants to the Conference.

(a) The EC has allocated a sum to assist scientists of under 35 years of age. To be eligible for support you must be either an EU national or a national of an associated state (currently Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Israel) and currently working in the EU or its associated states. 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 EPSRC and the LMS to assist UK mathematicians. These awards are unlikely to cover the total costs.


All Application Forms and Requests for Financial Support should be with ICMS by Friday 19 October 2000. Places are limited, and submission of an Application Form, even when not requiring financial support, does not guarantee a place on the conference. Priority will be given to younger scientists. All applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by the end of October.

You will find the online forms here.
