Edinburgh has been Scotland’s capital since the 15th century and is steeped in history. It is compact and hilly, with many magnificent views and buildings. It comprises a medieval Old Town and an elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. The two contrasting townscapes, which give the city its unique character, are together listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Towering over the city is Edinburgh Castle, a former fortress and royal residence. It is home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny – once used in the coronation of Scotland’s monarchs. Other sites include the Palace of Holyroodhouse, St. Giles’ Cathedral, and Canongate and Greyfriars churches. Edinburgh is the seat of the Scottish Government, the Scottish Parliament and the highest courts in Scotland. The city has long been a centre of education, particularly in the fields of science and engineering, medicine, law, literature and philosophy.
Edinburgh has world class hotels available in all categories, mostly within easy walking distance of the EICC. Rooms will be blocked at favourable prices for delegates, and can be booked at the time of registration.
There will be a cultural tour for all participants on 15 October, so that there will be an opportunity for everyone to see the city’s most famous sites of interest.
Then there will be a package of tours for accompanying persons, in and around the city during the conference days.
