John McIntyre Conference Centre, Pollock Halls Campus, 
Edinburgh, Scotland

17th International Conference on Agile Software Development

Pollock Halls Campus 

The Pollock Halls Campus is operated by the University of Edinburgh and boasts excellent conference facilities combined with a perfect location. The campus is situated next to Arthur’s Seat and Holyrood Park, Edinburgh’s largest green space, but within walking distance of the city centre. The co-location of venue and accommodation will enhance the traditional collegiate atmosphere of the XP conference and ensure that conversations will continue long after the formal sessions have finished.
