Registration and Accomodation


The full registration procedure takes place in two phases. The first pre-registration phase has closed on March 8. All selected pre-registrants will be contacted directly by the Spring School organization. The registration fee (if any) is different for three different groups: Each participant is assumed to participate in all parts of the Spring School (so, also including the informal poster and demo session, and the social event), unless indicated otherwise by the participant.

Selected participants (i.e. only those who have been contacted by the Spring School organization directly) can transfer the required registration fee using the following information:
    VU Fac. Exacte Wetenschappen
    De Boeleaan 1083A

    Account number: 488095368
    IBAN number: NL43 ABNA 0488095638
    Swift code / Bic Code: ABNANL2A

    Reference to be used: "2821348 Registration Spring School 2011"
Please make sure that any potential costs of the international bank transfer itself are carried by yourself (or make sure that the transfer is free of any charges).


No special accomodation is arranged by the ComplexHPC Spring School organization. It is up to each participant to arrange accomodation him/herself. VU University does maintain a list of recommended hotels, however. Most of the hotels on the list are in the Museum Quarter. This is not exactly next to the VU campus, but there are many good direct public transport connections to VU University. From the Museum Quarter, it is best to take tram-line 5, which stops directly in front of the VU buildings.

In case this is not sufficient, please have a look at a slightly older list, which is maintained by one of our research groups on the VU website. The page contains links to general booking sites as well:


For lowest prices, booking is best done through more general booking sites (e.g. booking.com), and not through the hotel systems themselves. Note that finding low prices is important. Only in this way we can ensure the highest possible reimbursement for COST participants.
