received last week a mail confirming your booking. If you haven't received such a mail, please get in touch with us *immediately* as the blocking of the rooms in the hostel will be removed shortly and then it won't be possible get you a room there anymore. 

As per the confirmation mail, the standard booking is from March 25 to March 29.

For any changes in your booking please contact directly (use "AFS conference EAKC 2014" as booking reference).

The CERN hostel is on site (CERN Meyrin bldg. 38, 39, 41) and within walking distance from the conference venue. Further details and CERN hostel rules:

Bulletin No. 2

Dear all,

Here comes ECK2014 Bulletin No. 2 with details on access to the CERN site and WiFi during the conference. 

Access to the CERN site:

The access to the CERN site is restricted and requires special authorisation.

The reception in building 33 and the guards at the various entrances have a list of all conference participants and will grant you access to the site for the duration of your stay. 

On Wednesday morning during registration in the conference room (building 31, IT Auditorium, 3rd floor) we will hand out conference badges that will allow you to enter the CERN site more conveniently.

Note that it is about a 10 minute walk from the entrance or the hostel to the conference room.

Access to the CERN site with your own car:

Private cars need a visitor's parking ticket which we will need to request in advance. So, if you plan to come by car and you'd like to enter the CERN site with it, let us know as soon as possible.

Network access:

We will provide WiFi access to the CERN network during the conference. In order to save time while you're here at CERN, you may want to register your device already now:
