Travel information
Ben-Gurion International Airport is serviced by numerous airlines from around the world. It is located about 20 minutes (at good traffic times!) from the Bar-Ilan campus and the conference hotel, 30 minutes from downtown Tel Aviv and one hour from Jerusalem. For arrival, departure and transportation to and from the airport look here. Taxis run 24-7 from the airport to Tel Aviv area and cost between 110-190 shekels depending on the day and time and the number of passengers and suitcases. The current rate of exchange is about 3.50 NIS (New Israeli Shekel) to the $US, 4.2 NIS to the Euro.

The Kfar Maccabiah Hotel is chosen as the conference hotel. The hotel is a 25 minute walk from the Bar-Ilan campus and there are busses from there to the campus as well. We have also arranged for daily transportation to and from the hotel to the Bar-Ilan campus. On Sunday, June 17, a shuttle bus from the hotel to the campus will leave at 11:15.

If you book at another hotel, please mail us with the information, to let us know where you are.

The talks will take place on the Bar-Ilan campus (Sunday-Wednesday) and in the conference hotel (Thursday-Friday). On Sunday and Monday the talks will take place in Beck Auditorium (building 410, room 070), and on Tuesday and Wednesday in the Mathematics Building (building 216, upper seminar room). See the campus information, including a campus map, here. Friday session will take place on the 6th floor of the main hotel building .
