Easy access to beautiful Scotland makes Edinburgh the second most popular tourist destination in the UK.

Getting to Edinburgh is easy, through its international airport and two major railway stations. Most of the centre is easy to navigate on foot, and for longer distances you can get around by bus, tram, taxi, or uber.


The conference is funded by the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences. ICMS was created in 1989 by Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt Universities, and has an international reputation for running high quality meetings that bring many of the best mathematicians in the world to Edinburgh.
