I want to bring my car - is there anywhere I can park near the conference venue?

There is limited on-street parking available, and it is metered. Additionally there are longer stay, multi-story car parks around Edinburgh, but these can be expensive.

All those attending the conference must be registered and pay the registration fee. This includes any accompanying adults. 

Can I bring a 'plus one' to the conference dinner?

Given limitations of space and the need to prioritize those registered for the conference, we cannot at this stage promise that we can accommodate a 'plus one' to the conference dinner. Participants seeking to bring a partner to the dinner should contact the conference organizer, Professor Nicola McEwen, in advance of the conference.

Can I bring my children?

No, it is not advisable or practical to bring children to the conference venue.
