Details of the conference venue and accommodation options.


John McIntyre Conference Centre and South Hall Complex
Pollock Halls Campus
18 Holyrood Park Rd
EH16 5AY
Scotland, UK

The conference will take place in the John McIntyre Conference Centre, Pollock Halls Campus. Pollock Halls Campus is operated by the University of Edinburgh and boasts excellent conference facilities in an attractive location.

The campus is situated next to Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park—Edinburgh's largest green space—but within walking distance of the city centre. The co-location of venue and accommodation will enhance the traditional collegiate atmosphere of the conference and ensure that conversations will continue long after the formal sessions have finished.


Edinburgh is a very popular tourist destination and hotel capacity is limited over the summer months. Conference delegates are therefore encouraged to book early to secure a reservation at their preferred accommodation provider.

We are reserving rooms for conference delegates at preferential rates at the onsite student accommodation within the Pollock Halls Campus, and campus hotels, all within walking distance of the main conference venue. This can be booked during the online registration process.

Nearby hotels

We also suggest a number of 3, 4, and 5 star hotels within walking distance of the conference venue. Delegates may choose from excellent budget accommodation, stylish boutique properties, or luxurious international hotels. Delegates should book any accommodation directly with the accommodation provider.
