The 60th Annual Meeting and Conference will be held at the Stirling Court Hotel (29 June – 2 July 2016) within the campus of the University of Stirling, Scotland.

The Conference was held at the Stirling Court Hotel which is situated within the campus of the University of Stirling. The venue was easily accessible and around an hour’s journey from either Glasgow or Edinburgh International Airports.

One of the principal royal strongholds of the Kingdom of Scotland, Stirling was created a Royal burgh by King David I in 1130, which it remained until 1975, when the burgh as an administrative unit was abolished. In 2002, as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee, Stirling was granted city status.

The city is clustered around a large fortress and medieval old-town. Stirling is a centre for local government, higher education, retail, and industry. In 2012, the population of the City was 45,750. The majority of the population is located in its southeast corner, in the City of Stirling and in the surrounding area.
