ASI Arrangements

Venue
The 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.

For more information on how to get to Edinburgh, please look at our Travel Page. If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. 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.

Programme
The meeting will start on the evening of Tuesday 8 July with an informal buffet combined with Registration at Pollock Halls. Lectures will start on Wednesday morning and continue to the afternoon Saturday 12 July. The programme will start again on Monday 14 and will continue to the afternoon of Friday 18 July.

Accommodation
We have reserved a number of 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. Rooms have been reserved from the evening of Tuesday 8 to the morning of Saturday 19 July. ICMS cannot guarantee the availability of rooms. Priority will be given to ASI students and invited lecturers.

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

3. Financial Support
There are some funds available to support participants to the ASI. Final decisions regarding support will be made during the last week of May.

(a) NATO has made an award to cover some of the costs of eligible ASI students (i.e. those from NATO, Partner and Mediterranean Dialogue Counties http://www.nato.int/science/e/eapc.htm). ASI students are expected to stay for the entire period. (This funding is therefore not available to those who wish to attend only the Workshop.)

(b) ICMS has funds from the LMS and EPSRC to assist UK mathematicians. Each award is worth £200 and will be deducted from the total invoice. This award is also open to those who wish to attend only week 2 of the ASI (Workshop component)
