The conference will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre in Edinburgh, UK.
Edinburgh International Conference Centre
Edinburgh, a great renaissance centre, is the capital of Scotland. Known as the "modern Athens" of the North, its magnificent architecture shifts from the medieval Old Town, to the grace of the Georgian New Town, to the modern architecture of the new Scottish Parliament buildings. Above it all, in towering splendour, stands the Castle.
World famous for its annual August festival, Edinburgh offers a variety of cultural and sporting activities all year and is the gateway to the Scottish highlands.
