CLUES Workshop 2017 in La Cristalera

Our next CLUES workshop takes  place in La Cristalera, from
June 19th  to June  23th,  2017.




Transportation: Due to the variance in arrival times on June 18th, we will not provide a bus. Instead we will group you into groups of four person cabs. We have already contacted all people to whom this applies, if you haven’t been contacted by us please send an email to Gustavo and Noam.


In case you take your own taxi, we would advise you to let us know as taxis booked in advance cost 75EUR, while cabs from the airport may be significantly more expensive.

The address of the conference is:

Residencia  La Cristalera

Carretera M-611 km 10,  Miraflores de la Sierra.

If you get lost in Madrid or need to contact La Residencia for any other reason, please contact Ana: +34 629 06 48 67

Discussion groups
There will also be informal, unscheduled discussion group space for your needs. While these dont necessarily need to be prebooked, please be aware that if they are not, there may be some pressure on meeting room space.
