The first day of conference, July 3rd, will be held at the Informatics Forum (10 Crichton St, EH8 9AB) in the centre of Edinburgh.

On the 4th and 5th of July the talks will be in a different venue: LT1A, Business School, 29 Buccleuch Place. 


Both venues are within 10-15 minute walking distance from Waverley Station.


There are a large number of hotels around the University of Edinburgh’s central area.  Some nearby chains include:

Getting Around the City

The hotels listed about are all within walking distance of the conference, but Edinburgh is well-serviced by a bus and tram network, and black cabs.  The tram and most of the buses are run by Lothian Transport. (Please note, there are a few different bus providers and tickets from one will not be valid on others.)


Edinburgh is a vibrant city with a huge amount to see and do.  Have a look at Visit Scotland and Trip Advisor for ideas.
