The conference main venue is the boutique Hotel San Martin, on the edge of medieval village Smartno. The hotel is exclusively reserved for the conference, and it will accommodate a large number of the participants. The conference room is also located in the hotel.

The price for six nights, all included, will be around 700EUR for double occupancy rooms. A limited number of single rooms are available at an additional cost of 120EUR. If you have booked your own accommodation elsewhere, the price for the fees/all meals/excursions is 400EUR.

This price also includes several activities. We are still working out the details of the non-scientific program. Similarly to last year, it will include excursions and degustations. We recommend to make travel arrangements to arrive on Sunday (July 15) in the afternoon and leave on Saturday (July 21) in the morning. The workshop starts on Sunday evening with a reception at the hotel. This year's conference dinner will be dedicated to celebrate Ed Bertschinger's 60th birthday in the circle of former students, post docs and collaborators. It will take place on Friday (July 20) in Vila Vipolže.
