St Andrews

St Andrews and its University

The conference was held at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, UK. St Andrews is Scotland’s first university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world, founded in 1413 by Papal Bull. Thus, the conference is being held in the year in which we celebrate our 600th Anniversary. Over six centuries it has established a reputation as one of Europe’s leading and most distinctive centres for teaching and research and boasts impressive conference facilities with excellent residential accommodation.

The city of St Andrews is situated 50 miles northeast of Edinburgh in the Kingdom of Fife. There has been a settlement on the site of the city from at least the sixth century AD. Since then the city has played an important part in the history of the development of Scotland. St Andrews is set in a spectacular position. On one side it has the wooded hills of the Fife countryside but to the north and east it looks out over a rocky headland to the dramatic waters of the North Sea. For more than a thousand years, the town of St Andrews has been a focal point for bishops and kings, saints and martyrs, students and holidaymakers – not to mention the greatest golfers in the world. The town of St Andrews offers easy walking with an excellent choice of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. With award winning beaches and world renowned golf courses, St Andrews is a truly remarkable location.
