Important note

The IGESA has a boat that we can rent for transfers to the mainland. This can be done if the number of passengers is sufficient.
Please, let us know your means of transport and your arrival time as soon as you know it, and we will try to plan 1 or 2 common shuttles for the crossing.
We could also try to organize taxi sharing from train stations or airports.

The meals (full board including coffee breaks) and accommodation are included in the registration fee.

All workshop participants will be accommodated on the spot. A sufficient number of single and shared rooms will be available.
