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.

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.

The conference will start on the evening of Wednesday 18th June with an informal buffet combined with Registration at Pollock Halls. Lectures will start on Thursday morning and continue to lunchtime on Saturday 21st. The programme will start again on Monday 23rd June and will continue to lunchtime on Saturday 28th June.

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.

Edinburgh University Travel Pages have three maps. Map 1 will show you the locations of Pollock Halls and Kings Buildings campus in relation to the city centre and map 3 gives the layout of the Kings Buildings campus.

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