Information for participants

The institute is asking us to arrive on site Sunday March 26 after 2pm and to leave the site Friday March 31 before 3pm (after lunch).

For those coming by plane, the easiest way is to arrive in Geneva and take a shuttle to les Houches. When possible, we will organize airport transfers from Geneva for small groups of participants (not included in the registration fee). Please plan to arrive on Sunday March 26 and leave on Friday March 31. You will not be able to stay at the Institute before or after the school. Finding a hotel nearby will be difficult as well : plan to book a hotel near your Airport if you have no other choice for arrival or departure date.

In order to coordinate arrivals and departures, please enter your arrival and departure information on the following document :
