In the long-held tradition of the IMGS, there is a mid-week excursion free of formal academic activities. Delegates will be invited to join a range of options to see a little bit of Edinburgh and the surrounding regions of Scotland. Those registered are encouraged but not required to participate in the field trip. If space allows, we hope to include delegate’s families in the field trip, at a small additional cost. More details to follow soon.
