The School will take place at the Facultad de Ciencias of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. Probably, the easiest way to reach the Campus de Cantoblanco is by train: both branches of line C-4 (trains with destination "Alcobendas/San Sebastián de los Reyes" or "Colmenar Viejo") stop at "Cantoblanco Universidad". During the week (Monday-Friday), bus line 828 may also be a convenient alternative to/from the airport.
There is no predefined accommodation for the School. If you would like to stay in-Campus, you can book a room at the Residencia Erasmo. If you would rather stay in Madrid, there are plenty of options along the C4 train line, implying of the order of 20-40 minutes of commuting time. In this case, we recommend you use your favourite web page to look for accommodation.
If you need assistance or have any question/request (e.g. would like to share a room with another student), please contact Milvia. Sombounou at UAM, es.
In order to take the most advantage of the School, we encourage all the participants to bring their own laptops. Free space in the hard disk would also be desirable in order to store some of the data locally rather than (ab)using the wireless connection. All the data and software will be installed in a dedicated computer at the UAM, and we are currently studying different options to transfer them to the participant's laptops. Basic instructions to install all the relevant software can be found here.
