PUBLIC LECTURE AND WELCOME RECEPTION
The public lecture and welcome reception on Wednesday 3 September will take place within The University of Edinburgh's central campus and offer delegates the opportunity to visit two unique and very different buildings at the University. The public lecture is at Reid Music Hall, and the welcome reception is at the nearby Informatics Forum (please see map at the bottom of this page).
Reid Music Hall, Bristo Square, Edinburgh EH8 9AG.
Informatics Forum, 10 Crichton Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AB.
The main conference will take place on 4 - 6 September.
The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, 9 Queen Street, Edinburgh EH2 1JQ.
This unique, historic venue is situated in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town, only a five minute walk from Edinburgh's famous Princes Street and many top tourist attractions.
The purpose built lecture theatre can accommodate up to 300 delegates. Posters will be displayed in the magnificent Great Hall which dates back to the Victorian era.
The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh is a listed building, which means there is limited disabled access to the premises.
There is a wheelchair lift situated at the rear of the building which accommodates most wheelchairs, with a weight limit of 150kg. However, please note that specially adapted models may not fit the 700mm x 750mm platform. The College has a wheelchair which fits onto the lift, should the attendee be able to manoeuvre from their own chair.
We will take all reasonable steps to assist you. If you expect to use the disabled access route, we would appreciate advanced warning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
