Meeting Arrangements


The meeting will be held at the Royal Society of Edinburgh, 22 George Street, in the city-centre. This is a short walk from the head-quarters of ICMS at 14 India Street. This house, the birthplace of James Clerk Maxwell, will also be available for use of participants during the workshop. Facilities include email and rooms suitable for small discussion meetings. This map shows the locations of George Street and India Street. For details of how to get to Edinburgh, please use the links on our Travel Information page.


We have reserved single study-bedrooms at Pollock Halls, a University of Edinburgh student residence just to the south-east of the city-centre. Breakfast and evening meals will also be available there. If you require accommodation, early application is encouraged as the reserved rooms will be allocated as registrations are received.

Participants are also free to make their own arrangements for accommodation and ICMS staff will be happy to advise.

Financial matters

1 Registration fee

This Fee of £40 is payable six weeks prior to the meeting.

2 Course costs

The costs will be invoiced, in pounds sterling, prior to the meeting and must be paid at the very latest by the start of the meeting. ICMS cannot accept credit cards.

(a) Residential - £225
This covers dinner, bed and breakfast from the evening of Sunday 8th July to the morning of Saturday 15th July, and refreshments during the 5 days of the meeting. The evening meal will be in the Pollock Hall dining room on each night except the 8th (when there will be a Registration Buffet) and the evening of Thursday 12th when there will be a conference dinner. The cost of all evening meals is included. (There may be some ensuite rooms available, and the cost will be around £300 for the week.)

(b) Non-Residential - £35
To cover the Registration Buffet on Sunday 8th July and refreshments during the meeting. There will be an additional charge of £20 for anyone wanting to attend the Conference Dinner on the 12th.

3 Financial Support

Those wishing to apply for funding should complete the Application for Financial Support section on the Registration Form. There are two sources of funds available.

1. The meeting has a award from the European Commission to support the participation of EU nationals and nationals of the associated states (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Israel) who are under the age of 35. The awards are limited in number and will be allocated by the Organisers. Each award will normally cover all local costs and the Registration Fee and will make a significant contribution towards travel.

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

NB: Those who apply for funds and are not successful cannot be assured a place afterwards should they find funding from their own sources.




(There may be some places for late registrants who can cover their own costs. )
