Please scroll down to see the day-by-day schedule. Clicking on the name of a panel will take you to the abstracts for that panel. We will add titles and abstracts for plenaries in the next few days.

The number in each panel session indicates the room that the panel takes place in. For instance, A2 would be in room 2, and C5 would be in C5, and so on.

All events take place in the Old College at the University of Edinburgh except for the Anthony D. Smith lecture, which will be at 50 George Square, and the conference dinner, which will be at Cafe Andaluz.
