Accommodation and Travel Information

BICMR will accommodate all speakers. A block of rooms is being held at the “Zhong Guan Xin Yuan (中关新园)” (Building Number 1) Hotel for the nights of August 3, through August 5. The hotel is across the street of Peking University Campus, about 10 minutes’ walk from BICMR. If you plan to have an extended stay, please inform Ms. Yiwei Li (liyiwei@math.pku.edu.cn) so that she can help you arrange hotels.

Other participants are responsible for arranging and paying for their own reservations for hotel accommodations. We recommend Zhong Guan Xin Yuan, since it is close to the venue of the workshop.

Hotel Address:

“Zhong Guan Xin Yuan” Hotel (Zhongguanyuan Global Village)

No. 216 Zhongguancun North Road, Haidian District, Beijing 100871, China
