Location and Hotels
CENTRAL AUDITORIUM CSIC
The scientific presentations during May 25-26 will be in the major auditorium at the headquarters of the main scientific institution in Spain (CSIC, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas, Calle de Serrano 117), and the different mini courses during May 27 will be in the main business school in Madrid (IE, Instituto Empresa, Calle de María de Molina, 11). Both CSIC and IE are just a few meters away from each other, and also meters away from the Gregorio Maranon subway station.
There are many hotels nearby, and we recommend the trendy NH Zurbano Hotel. Fortunately, Madrid has a wealth of accommodations, from expensive hotels to cheap hostels, AirBnB and Couchsurfing places. The bus and subway systems are also highly recommended, clean, fast and safe to go to most locations within touristry Madrid, so prepare for a wonderful stay in the Land where the Sun never sets!
