18th July:


Less than one month for abstract submissions.


Kings Cross station will be closed for the long weekend (August 24-26) and all the trains that currently run from there to Edinburgh are cancelled. This will make getting in from Heathrow via central London difficult and the alternative routes will be very crowded. Book trains and seat reservations asap.


Please sign up for taxi transfers and provide the flight number/arrival time here. Deadline 15th August.


A reminder that abstract/talk title deadline is 10th August, and for this, no possible exceptions. Folks who will speak on the first evening will be informed in advance, and if you have a request NOT TO, please let us know.

TRANSPORTATION


FLIGHTS

Peebles is within easy reach from both Edinburgh (EDI) and Glasgow (GLA) airports. Direct flights to EDI/GLA exist from many major airports in north America, Europe, India, China, Thailand, Brazil and Africa by various international carriers. It may be more economical to arrive in the UK via Heathrow (LHR), and there are frequent domestic flights to EDI, which take about an hour. We suggest that that you make your flight reservations in good time. There are rail and bus connections between GLA and EDI and transfers will be arranged via EDI.


RAIL

Waverley station in Edinburgh is well connected to the rest of the UK, with trains roughly every two hours from London and other major cities such as Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester and trains every 15 minutes from Glasgow, and has a bus and tram service connecting to the airport.
