Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the ISMD2020 meeting has been postponed to July 2021. We look forward to welcoming you in the Scottish Highlands next summer. Stay safe.



Pitlochry is a small Victorian-era tourist town in highland Perthshire, situated on the River Tummel and old military road to the Highlands, and known for its early hydroelectric dam, distilleries, and picturesque views.

Further afield, the Edinburgh festivals begin shortly after the conference and are highly recommended to visitors to Scotland!
