The meeting will be held at John McIntyre Conference Centre (JMCC), at Pollock Halls. Pollock Halls are close to Holyrood Park and the Scottish Parliment buildings.

Campus accommodation is available at Salisbury Green Hotel or Masson House. You need to book accommodation for yourself. Unfortunately, due to the late convergence on a date for the Tech Forum I was unable to arrange accommodation this time around. Anyone wanting off-site accommodation will find lots of options nearby from guest houses to 5* hotels; this website might be a good place to start.
