Finding Our Venues

Once you arrive in Dundee you’ll find that the city centre is helpfully flat and compact, all of our suggested accommodation and event venues are close together with the longest distance being approximately 10 minutes’ walk.  All main venues are listed on the map below.


If you are travelling to Dundee airport then a taxi to the city centre will be the best option, but if you are arriving to the rail or bus station you will find yourself already in the city centre.


There are a number of exciting developments happening at the Waterfront area of the city centre which means that the road layouts may be slightly different from the map (sometimes they change overnight!) but travelling on foot you will find that all routes are easily accessible.

The Congress Venue

The Congress is being held in the Centre for Excellence on Level 2 of our Kydd Building, accessed from Bell Street.  You enter from the street into Level 1 and there are stairs or a lift that will take you directly from the main foyer to our location.


Eleanor, Claire and the Congress Support team will be stationed at the reception area in the Centre for the duration of the congress and this is where to come with any queries.  The lecture theatres, parallel sessions and exhibition are all based in this area.

Event Venues

For all event  venues are listed on the map above also – on Tuesday we will be in the beautiful McManus Galleries, Wednesday is a trip to the shore onto the RRS Discovery and our Gala Dinner on Thursday will be located in the Apex Hotel.  For information about the events themselves and links to the websites  please see our Social Events section.
