Workshop Arrangements


The Workshop 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. Please note that a European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Visa Enquiry Form to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one.

We have reserved single study bedrooms (with private bathrooms) on the campus. Rooms will be allocated as registrations are received. Lunch will be provided, but evening meals have not been booked. They are available on the campus, but as the Workshop coincides with the Edinburgh Festival, the Organisers considered that many participants would wish to take the short (20-25 minute) bus-ride into central Edinburgh on many evenings.


The meeting will start with Registration at Heriot-Watt University during the evening of Wednesday 21 August (for those staying at Heriot-Watt). Talks will begin at 9.30 am on Thursday 22 August. The meeting will finish in the afternoon of Wednesday 28th August. Sunday will be free.

Workshop Costs

The costs will be invoiced, in pounds sterling, prior to the meeting and must be paid at the very latest by the Registration session at the start of the meeting. Cancellation after May 1st will incur a cancellation fee equivalent to that charged by the Conference Centre to the meeting Organisers. Financial support (to cover the costs of local subsistence itemized below) is available only to invited participants.
