Time: Thursday June 20 and Friday June 21, 2013

Location: The lectures and group meetings will be held at the Irchel campus of the University of Zurich in the mathematics department. In order to get there, use Tram no. 9 or 10 to station "Irchel", then follow this map.

Schedule: See below.

Travel: Zurich is easy to reach both by plane and train. Irchel campus, Coronado hotel and hotel Rigihof are all on tram line 10 which connect the airport with the the main station. So that should be fairly easy.

Accomodation: Coronado hotel is an affordable hotel which our institute used many times. Unfortunately they have for that period not many rooms left.

Leonardo Boutique Hotel Rigihof Zurich is another nearby hotel. We negotiated a deal where 25 rooms will be held until May 31 at the following cost: CHF 210 + CHF 2.5 City tax for a single room (about 172 Euro), CHF 232 + CHF 5 City tax for a double room (about 191 Euro) These rates include a nice breakfast and free Internet.
To avail of these rates please contact directly the hotel: Leonardo Boutique Hotel Rigihof, Universitätsstrasse 101, CH-8006 Zürich; Reservation code: COST, Email: s.wuffli@leonardo-hotels.com, Phone: +41 44 360 12 00, Fax: +41 44 360 12 07.

Registration: Please contact the COST Action's research administrator Clara Grimes in case you have not received an invitation from the COST office. Please also send an email to Cécile Haussener indicating your name, affiliation and the dates of your arrival/departure. Also state if you would like to give a talk.
