September 11th update Dear ITS registrant, unfortunately we have now reached capacity for our banquet so if you register now your registration will not include a banquet ticket. You will be able to attend the welcome reception, posters, demos, lunches, coffee/tea and research papers, just not the banquet. We are seeking ways to increase the numbers who can attend the banquet and we will be giving tickets to those who have missed out in the order they have registered.

Registration is now open and your ITS 2013 registration fee now includes:

  1. Attendance at the ITS main conference sessions in Younger Hall on Monday and Tuesday and for the first session and joint capstone/keynote on Wednesday until 10am
  2. Attendance at the ITS poster and demonstration sessions during the morning coffee breaks and afternoon coffee breaks, on Monday and Tuesday
  3. Lunch on Monday and Tuesday
  4. Opening reception on Sunday and conference banquet on Monday, where space permits
  5. Conference materials.

You should register early to ensure you can take full advantage of the entire conference and social program. Depending on registration numbers we reserve the right to limit the numbers who can attend the conference banquet and reception. These social events are held in grand venue of the Lower College Hall with its grand interiors in St Salvator's Quadrangle, in the University of St Andrews.

There is a detailed website available with comprehensive details on how to get to St Andrews by plane, taxi, train, bus, car or boat!
