DEISA Symposium, April 28 - 29, 2008

Travel

All attendees must make their own travel arrangements.

If you arrive at Edinburgh Airport, there are several ways of how to get to the city centre. They can be found on the Airport's webpage.

A detailed description of how to get to 'Our Dynamic Earth', which is located in Edinburgh's city centre, can be found at here.

Accommodation

Attendees are advised that they must arrange their own accommodation.

To assist with the accommodation arrangements, we have held a number of rooms at two hotels: The Macdonald Holyrood Hotel and the IBIS Edinburgh.

The rooms are held for the 27th, 28th & 29th April 2008. Mention 'University of Edinburgh, DEISA Symposium' when booking by telephone or email to get the cheaper rate. You cannot get this cheaper rate via online reservation sites. The rooms are held until a few weeks before the event, at which time they will be released to the public. If rooms are still available, then attendees can still get the agreed rate by quoting 'University of Edinburgh, DEISA Symposium'.

The Macdonald Holyrood Hotel

The Macdonald Holyrood Hotel
81 Holyrood Road
Edinburgh, EH8 8AU

The agreed room rate, which includes breakfast, is 97 UKP for a double room with 1 person and 110 UKP for a double room with 2 people. Upgrades are available for the Club Class Floor for an additional payment of 40 UKP. Rooms will be released to the public on Monday, the 17th of March, 2008.

This hotel is located opposite the conference venue on Holyrood Road.

IBIS Edinburgh

IBIS Edinburgh
6 Hunter Square
Edinburgh, EH1 1QW

The agreed room rate, which includes breakfast, is 79 UKP for a double room with one person and 84 UKP for a double room with 2 people. Rooms will be released to the public on Monday the 31st of March, 2008.

This hotel is located in the heart of Edinburgh's old town lying just off the Royal Mile. It would take approximately 15 minutes to walk to the conference venue from this hotel.
