Arrangements

Participation
This workshop is now closed.   If you have a enquiry please email Jane Walker.

Venue
The venue for this INI satellite workshop is ICMS, 15 South College Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AA, (see this link and the 'Travel' section below for directions).  All lectures will be held in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre. To view this room and a list of the visual equipment available click here. In addition, two blackboards have recently been installed and a PC outputting to a high definition projector and audio system.

Wireless Access
The workshop venue, 15 South College Street, has wireless access throughout. On arrival at Registration you will be given instructions and a code for accessing the wireless network.  For those without laptops, there are computers available for you to check your emails.

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 international travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here.   You may also find this map and  this link useful for the workshop.

A taxi directly from the airport to the city centre will cost approximately 20.00 - 25.00 GBPfor a one-way journey. There is also a bus service from the airport to the city centre.

Within the city, Lothian buses charge £1.30 for a single, £3.20 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 two 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 railway station is called Haymarket and is at the West End of the city centre.

If you are travelling directly to your accommodation you can take an AIRLINK bus from the airport to the city centre - the fare is £6 return and the journey takes about 30 minutes. From the city centre (Waverley Bridge where the bus terminates) walk to North Bridge (a two minute walk) and take bus number 14, 30, 33, or 48.  Ask the driver to let you off at Pollock Halls. The bus fare is £1.30 (you need the exact money). Or you can get a taxi for about £5.  It's a five-ten minute cab ride away.   This map showing the location of Pollock Halls may be helpful.  

Travel Insurance
Please note that it is your responsibility to have adequate travel insurance to cover medical and other emergencies that may occur on your trip.

Accommodation
Accommodation details have been sent out individually.   Please pick up your keys after 14.00 from the Reception Centre at Pollock Halls which is situated near the main entrance to the Pollock Halls complex on Holyrood Park Road.  The Reception Centre is staffed 24 hours a day.  If you experience delays during your travels, meaning you will not arrive on the intended date, please contact the accommodation staff on +44 131 651 2198 to let them know. It is approximately a 25-35 minute walk from Pollock Halls to the workshop venue at 15 South College Street. 

Catering Arrangements
All catering is provided as part of the workshop grant. Lunch will be provided in the Chapterhouse on Level 1 of the workshop venue on each day of the workshop.   Coffee and tea will be available during each of the breaks as listed in the Programme below.   The workshop dinner will take place on Thursday 20 October, 19.00, at the Magnum Restaurant, 1 Albany Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3PY.
