Edinburgh is a natural choice for holding a conference to discuss the changing publishing industry. Contemporary writers such as J.K.Rowling and Ian Rankin live in the city and it has been home to many notable writers, journalists, academics and nobel prize winning scientists.

The conference will be held in the auditorium, University of Edinburgh Business School, 29 Buccleuch Place, EH8 9JS. Coffee and the drinks reception will be held in the concourse area (pictured below right) in the building which is situated next to the auditorium.

The venue is just a 10-15 minute walk from Princes Street and Waverley Railway Station and only 5 minutes from the Royal Mile and the Old Town.
