The 11th ISVCS will take place on 16-21 July 2017 at the Royal Victoria Hotel, Llanberis, Snowdonia, Wales, UK. Typical days at the Symposium will consist of morning technical presentations, afternoon hikes or excursions in the local area, and, in the evening, further technical discussions and social gatherings. The various outings and social gatherings provide important opportunities for relaxed and informal discussion of technical and not-so-technical topics surrounded by the natural beauty of the Snowdonia National Park.

This web site describes the Symposium and the location in considerable detail. Note that attendance is limited to 50 attendees, with a maximum of 40 peer-reviewed presentations. The first 40 who register with the intent to make a presentation will be accepted, pending acceptance of the presentation abstract. The remaining attendees will be admitted based on the date of registration. The abstract deadline is 1 February 2017, but earlier submission is highly recommended - as is payment of the registration fee and reservation of a hotel room.

Please note that unlike most conferences, attendees are expected to stay for the entire five days of the symposium. To ensure this, although the presentations will be made in alphabetical order of the speakers' last names, the first speaker will be decided by a "lottery" drawing at the welcoming reception. As such, it will be impossible to know the date of any presentation until that time. The welcoming reception will be held at the conference venue, the Royal Victoria Hotel at 6 p.m. on the Sunday evening before the Symposium begins, 16 July.
