The meeting is open to all interested participants, and there is a poster session to which everybody is invited to contribute. There is also a dedicated mini-workshop for Ph.D. students and early career researchers. Abstracts for both posters and short talks should be proposed via the registration form by 31 August. The registration form is available here.
Limited funding is available to support the accommodation of Scottish Ph.D. students not based in Edinburgh. This will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please apply through the registration form.
We are grateful for the financial support from the Glasgow Mathematical Journal Learning and Research Support Fund, The Edinburgh Mathematical Society and the Societat Catalana de Matemàtiques.
Arrangements
Venue
The workshop will be held at ICMS, 15 South College Street, Edinburgh.
UK Visas
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 UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one.
Travel
Information about travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here.
Please note that it is your responsibility to have adequate travel insurance to cover medical and other emergencies (volcanic ash disruptions) that may occur on your trip.
A taxi directly from the airport will cost approximately 20.00 to 25.00 GBP to the city centre for a one-way journey. There is also a bus service direct from the airport to the city centre which will cost 4.50 GBP single or 7.50 GBP return - the Airlink 100. This is a frequent service (every 10 minutes during peak times) and will bring you close to Waverley Railway Station, only a short walk to the accommodation and the workshop venue (see map in 'Venue' section above).
Lothian buses charge £1.60 for a single, £4.00 for a day ticket. Please note that the exact fare is required and no change is given.
If travelling by train, please note that Edinburgh has several railway stations - Waverley Railway Station being the main station and closest to the workshop venue at 15 South College Street. If you alight at Edinburgh Waverley, the workshop venue is an easy 10 minute walk over North and South Bridge. The second large railway station is called Haymarket and is at the West End of the city centre. Please be aware that there is also an Edinburgh Park railway station but this is at the west side of the city some way from the city centre. For ICMS, use Edinburgh Waverley.
Registration fee
There is a £20 registration fee. It covers coffee breaks and a lunch on Wednesday. The conference dinner on Thursday costs an additional £40.
