The Gathering will take place at the Centro Internacional de Ciencias (CIC), which is located on the campus of the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos (UAEM) in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

Arrival Information:
Arriving at the airport in Mexico City, we recommend to take the direct bus "Pullman de Morelos" to Cuernavaca. At terminal 1, the ticket counter is located inside the airport on the second floor (flights arrive on the first floor). At terminal 2, the ticket counter is located outside the arrival area. All buses start from terminal 1 but stop at terminal 2. Buses operate from 04:00 to 00:30 daily, approximately every 30 minutes. The ticket costs 250 Mexican Pesos (14 US Dollars). It takes about 90 minutes to Cuernavaca, depending on the traffic. You will arrive in Cuernavaca at the "Casino de la Selva" bus station, from where you can take a radio taxi to the hotel/CIC guest house. We recommend to buy the taxi ticket inside the bus station at the counter. A taxi to the hotel/CIC guest house costs about 70 Mexican Pesos (4 US Dollars).

A limited number of rooms are avaliable at the CIC guesthouse, located in the city center of Cuernavaca. The hotel Posada Tlaltenango will also offer lodging at a special rate.
