Location

Aberdeen is a city of fascinating contrasts, with something for everyone. Its rich cultural heritage combines with a thriving contemporary community and a strong economic pulse, to make the "Granite City" a lively and rewarding place in which to live, study and work.

In recent times, it has become the hub of the world's offshore energy network as the administrative and technical centre for the North Sea and beyond.

The city centre has several busy shopping malls and an eclectic mix of independent shops and top chain stores, as well as a wide choice of nightclubs, wine bars, traditional pubs and restaurants.

Culturally, Aberdeen caters for all tastes. A magnificent Edwardian theatre attracts international companies performing ballet, theatre, opera and light entertainment and many other entertainment venues feature classical, contemporary, and rock concerts.

There are miles of golden beaches, dunes and cliffs, which give shelter to great nurseries of seabirds and winter migrants; the nearby mountain ranges of the Cairngorms and the Grampians offer superb opportunities for hillwalking, mountaineering and skiing, and rivers such as the Dee, the Don, and the Ythan offer fishing, rowing and canoeing, as well as breathtaking scenery.

You are assured of an enthusiastic welcome in Aberdeen from both the University and the wider community.

Conference Venue

The conference will be held at Robert Gordon University, Riverside East, Garthdee Road, Aberdeen AB10 7GJ
