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 in Cuernavaca, Mexico.  

A limited number of rooms is avaliable at the CIC guesthouse, located in the citycenter of Cuernavaca. The hotel "Posada de Tlaltenango" will also offer lodging at a special rate.

Arrival Information:

Arriving at the airport in Mexico City, you can take an autobus going directy to Cuernavaca. The company is called "Pullman de Morelos". 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 busses leave from terminal 1, but stop at terminal 2. Buses operate from 4:00 to 0:30, 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, where you can take a taxi. We recommend to buy the taxi ticket inside the bus station at the counter. A taxi to the CIC guest house costs about 70 Mexican Pesos (4 US Dollars).

We recommend to use taxis for the transfers to the CIC. A taxi from the city-center of Cuernavaca to the CIC costs about 70 Pesos (4 US Dollars) and takes about 30min.
