The school will be held in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, on the Mayan Riviera, Mexico.

Most (but unfortunately possibly not all) participants will be lodged at the hotel Real Playa del Carmen, while a few participants may have to be lodged in the hotel El Tukan.

The lectures will be given in the hotel Gran Porto Real which is a 5-10 minutes walk from the Real Playa del Carmen and 2 minutes from the Tukan. For a map see the Venue page.

The US$800 PARTICIPATION FEE includes lodging in one of the above hotel and is "all inclusive": it covers meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner), 24h self-service snack bar, beach club, ... (see the Real Playa del Carmen web page), starting on the evening of Sunday January 12 (i.e., dinner is included) till noon of Thursday January 23 (i.e., lunch is included). Students lodged in the Real Playa del Carmen will share a Master Suite: one bedroom with a king-size bed and a sofa bed in the main room (deciding who sleeps on the sofa will be left to the students, NOT the organizers !). Coffee breaks will be served for two hours during each of the lecture sessions (see the Program page).
