Serving as the capital seat of Scotland, Edinburgh provides a rich, cultural destination for those wanting to explore the old and new of Scotland. The elegant Georgian streets of Edinburgh are set against the dramatic backdrop of Edinburgh Castle and the medieval turrets and spires of the Old Town. As a Center of Education, the University of Edinburgh was first established in 1583 and has played a pivotal role in academic achievements for centuries. Presentations for the institute will be held in the meeting room at the Royal Commonwealth Pool facility, an Edinburgh Leisure centre with magnificent views of Mt. Holyrood. Within a short two-minute walking distance, institute housing will be at the University of Edinburgh Pollock Halls. The unique and scenic setting of Pollock Halls, University of Edinburgh, and close proximity to historic Edinburgh landmarks will serve to make the IAMFC Scotland Summer Institute a personally and professionally rewarding experience.
