Practical information


The summer school will be held in room W-404 of los Los Andes University (this means building W, room 404). The University has different entrances. The closest entrance to our room is indicated in the map below. Please use this entrance (the building of the entrance is called Edificio Lleras).



The W building is next to the entrance. Here is a map with the buildings of the university.



There is no registration fee but be aware that meals and accomodation are not covered. Registration is compulsory, as you will be registered in a list to be able to enter the campus.

At arrival:
We recommend participants to take a taxi from the airport to their accommodation (unless your hotel has a transport service, in which case this is also a good option). In order to do this you will need to either exchange or withdraw some money at the airport. The taxi will cost you around 20000 colombian pesos (say around 7-8 US dollars), maybe a bit less or a bit more. You can see the exact amount in the taximeter + a charge of about 4500 pesos for airport ride (and if you arrive during the night there will be also an extra charge for that). You will find at the airport an official taxi cue from which you should get yours (they are all yellow btw).

About Bogotá:
Bogotá is 2650 meters above the sea, please keep in mind this is not yet the caribbean. Its neither very cold nor very warm, temperature oscillates between 15 to 25 C degrees during the day, and it drops a bit during the night, so do bring a jacket or sweater with you.
Electrical plugs are as in the US, so try to bring an adapter is you don't hace this type of plug. Here you can find more information about electrical plugs.
