Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city, is one of the greenest and
architecturally most beautiful cities in Northern Europe. It is rich
in architecture, social, cultural, learning and sporting
facilities. Each year the city plays host to internationally renowned
events such as the Edinburgh International Arts, Fringe, Film, TV and
Science Festivals.  It is also a thriving commercial and financial
centre, the site of the new Scottish Parliament and a gateway to the
coastline, hills and open country of the Scottish Highlands

Edinburgh Airport is situated 13km to the west of the city. There are
direct flights from many European cities to Edinburgh.

Please note that the UAI conference is taking place just before the
festivals start in the peak tourist season. We *STRONGLY* advise
attendees to book flights and hotels as soon as
possible. Accommodation is booked via the Edinburgh Conference Bureau,
which can only guarantee accommodation bookings made before 13th June
