The scientific program will start on June 27 in the morning and end on June 28 in the afternoon; the governing board meeting will take place on June 29 in the morning.  The conference will take place at the Institut de recherche en mathématique et physique in room CYCL03 of the Marc de Hemptinne building (also called Cyclotron).


Participation to the workshop is free, but for practical purposes registration is mandatory. All participants should send an e-mail to Augusto Ponce by June 24.


The town of Louvain-la-Neuve, located in the Belgian province Brabant Wallon, is the main site of the Université catholique de Louvain. The conference will take place at the Institut de recherche en mathématique et physique in the Marc de Hemptinne building. Here you can find the information of how to get to the conference building from the Louvain-la-Neuve train station.

Louvain-la-Neuve is easily reachable by car (via the E411) or by train from Brussels Airport (via Bruxelles/Ottignies/Louvain-la-Neuve Université). You should be careful not to take trains to Leuven (Louvain in French): this is another town in the Flemish part of Belgium, 30km away from Louvain-la-Neuve!

Concerning train connections you may check train schedules from the SNCB website.

If you are staying in Wavre, bus line 20 (Wavre-Louvain-la-Neuve-Ottignies) is the most convenient way to come from Wavre to Louvain-la-Neuve (get off at stop "Louvain-la-Neuve, Gare d'autobus"); you can find the timetable here.


Finding accommodation in Louvain-la-Neuve is very difficult. The only hotel in Louvain-la-Neuve is already completely booked, but you can try a guest room.

The easier solution is to find a hotel in Brussels, near Place de Luxembourg where the European parliament is located. From Place de Luxembourg there are direct trains to Ottignies/Louvain-la-Neuve every 30 min (for a 40 min trip).
