The 14th Invertebrate Sound and Vibration international meeting will be held at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, United Kingdom, July 23-26, 2013.

The University is right at the heart of Glasgow - Scotland's biggest and most cosmopolitan city. The city centre has a vibrant arts scene, cutting-edge music, legendary nightlife, an exciting selection of places to eat out, art galleries and museums, and of course a very large selection of shops!

The origins of the University go back to 1796 when ‘Anderson's Institution’ was established as ‘the place of useful learning’ in Glasgow. This remains the core mission of the University: to combine academic excellence with social and economic relevance. Today the University is the third largest in Scotland, with well over 15,000 undergraduates of which almost 10% are overseas students from more than 100 countries around the world. A further 7,000 students are undertaking postgraduate studies at Strathclyde.

Just 50 minutes on the train from Glasgow city centre gets you to Edinburgh, capital city of Scotland. The historic centre of Edinburgh is a UNESCO World Heritage Site combining the medieval Old Town with the world famous Edinburgh Castle, the Georgian New Town and award winning modern architecture.

Weather in Glasgow

July is on average the warmest month in Glasgow, with average daytime temperatures of 19 °C (66 °F). However, delegates should be aware that the weather in western Scotland, in tune with the rest of the United Kingdom, can be ‘changeable’, so pack some warmer clothes, and a waterproof jacket.
