The conference will take place at the big Auditorium from ICMAT, a CSIC institute located near to the Campus of Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. The map of the location, the full address and indications how to reach it are shown below

In order to facilitate reaching the campus, we recommend seeking hotels near the train stations of Atocha, Sol, Nuevos Ministerios or Chamartin. See indications below for the C4 line.
