Practical Information

Travel information to get to the ICMS can be obtained here . The ICMS is located in the Edinburgh New Town and it is a pleasant 15-20 minute walk from Waverley station. The following map shows both Waverley station (near the lower right hand corner) and the ICMS (in the red circle).

Train information can be obtained from Railtrack.

Tea, coffee and biscuits and a sandwich lunch will be provided free of charge.

Limited funds are available to help with travel expenses of participants with no other source of funding. We hope that this will encourage postgraduate students and postdocs to attend the meeting.
