Notes on the programme: More special sessions to be added.

We are using several buildings around a pedestrian/near-pedestrian area at the University’s George Square. The longest distance to cover between buildings takes around 3 minutes door to door. The buildings are Appleton Tower and 50 George Square (connecting to David Hume Tower Lower Ground). Plenary sessions are held in the George Square Lecture Theatre.

Catering (during refreshment and lunch breaks) will be served in the same buildings as the parallel sessions. Participants can grab food either in the building they have just attended talks in, or transit to the building where their next parallel takes place and enjoy their food or refreshments there.
