Registration Fee

The registration fee is:



All the talks of the Conference will take place at Residencia San José, a private Residence Hall in El Escorial. The prices per person (including meals) at the residence are:

Please recall that all payments should be made in cash and upon arrival. No credit cards are allowed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to you.

Only a limited number of rooms are available. If you wish to book a room, indicate so in the Registration Form specifying clearly the arrival and departure dates to the residence. If you want to book a single room, we urge you to do it promptly since only a small number are available. If you want to share a room, you can either indicate your roommate in the Registration Form or let the Organizing Committee arrange it for you.

Residencia San José provides sufficiently large lecture rooms, as well as room and full board for all those participants who may wish to stay there along with some basic services.

All rooms have a private bathroom and shower. Besides the dining room where all meals will be served, there is a small cafeteria and vending machines for soft drinks and beer. Although some of the services available are modest or limited, we (the organisers) found the place comfortable and pleasant.

However, participants are reminded that Residencia San José is neither a research institute nor a hotel and therefore does not offer some of the typical services one may expect. For example, there is no library and the possibilities for computer connections may be limited. There will be no TV or phones in the rooms and no wake-up calls either.

For local participants who will be commuting or for those who will be staying elsewhere at El Escorial, meals will be available at Residencia San José; the price of each meal is 12 € (tickets can be purchased in advance at the Conference place).



There will be a small number of grants, mainly intended for graduate students, to cover the registration fee and/or accommodation. The deadline to apply was April 27, so we no longer accept applications for grants.

Before May 20, all the applicants will receive an e-mail from the Organizing Committee with the final decision.


Short Talks

Some sessions of short talks will be scheduled to accommodate those participants wishing to present their own recent results. The final list of short talks will be decided during May.
