The workshop will take place during the full days 6th and 7th September, with the training session for ESR’s scheduled for Friday 8th in the morning.

The board meeting, along with a parallel student-led session, will take place in the afternoon of the 6th.

The workshop will finish on the 7th with a panel session with Tim Williamson, Crispin Wright and Adrian Haddock (Stirling) on how different conceptions of the aim of philosophy and epistemological theorizing explain lack of convergence.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION:

 Accommodation:
We will arrange accommodation for speakers and network members near the campus.

Getting to Campus from Edinburgh or Glasgow airports:

Both airports are very well connected with Stirling by public transport (unless at night times; please let us know if you’re arriving after 9pm and before 7am).

From Edinburgh airport:

There’s a shuttle bus (Airlink, Service 100) from just outside the airport terminal. This service will bring you to any of Haymarket and Waverley train stops.

From any of those two stops you can get a train to Stirling (if you leave the shuttle at Haymarket you’ll save some minutes). You don’t need to get the train tickets in advance and can do so via machines or at a desk with a human being.

From Stirling train station, probably best to get a taxi to your accommodation or to the Conference venue (Stirling Court Hotel) if coming directly to the venue.

From Glasgow airport:

There’s a shuttle bus (First Group, Service 500 or 77) from outside the airport terminal. You want to leave the bus at Glasgow Queen Street train station. (N.B.: The bus also calls at Glasgow Central—a different train station and not the one you want.)

From Glasgow Queen Street you can get a train to Stirling. You don’t need to get the train tickets in advance and can do so via machines or at a desk with a human being.

From Stirling train station, probably best to get a taxi to your accommodation or to the Conference venue (Stirling Court Hotel) if coming directly to the venue.
