REGISTRATION AND ACCOMMODATION INFORMATION

Schur Memoriam

Registration fee is 80 $ US (free for invited speakers)

This will cover the cost of lunches and light refreshments during the conference. Members of the European Community and of the Israel Mathematical Union may be exempted. All participants should register at the conference buffet on Tuesday evening 26.12 or shortly afterwards as they arrive.


Accommodation

Participants may request to be accommodated on Campus at the Youth Village. Due to shortage of space preference will be given to those willing to share. The expected price with breakfast is 45$ for a single occupancy and 27.5 $ per person for a shared room per night. The number of rooms available on Campus is limited so the early registration is strongly recommended.

If you are staying at the Youth Village then you should settle the cost of your accommodation at the prices stated below directly at their offices. All amounts due are to be paid in cash, personal, traveller cheque or Euro-cheque in shekels or hard currency. Credit card payment is not possible.

Another choice for accommodation would be a hotel or furnished appartment in Tel-Aviv. The expected prices for a hotel room including breakfast are from 66 to 92 $ for single occupancy and from 82 to 112 $ for double and for a furnished appartment from 60 to 100 $. All these accommodations are centrally located, close to the beach, shopping areas, restuarants and night life. It takes about an hour by public transport from there to the Weizmann Institute.

For bookings in Tel-Aviv please send as well as your registration form an e-mail to anna@wisdom.weizmann.ac.il and write in subject "accommodation TA".

Those asking for a hotel/appartment booking must give a visa card number and settle their bill directly with the hotel/appartment during the Workshop.


Reception and Dinner

On Tuesday 26 December a Registration-Reception will be held and on Thursday 28 December a dinner will be held for the participants of the workshop. The price of the dinner will be about 30 $.
