Indicate your name, status and affiliation, and whether you are interested to contribute a talk (with tentative title). 
International participants please also indicate if we should help find accomodation (which dates? travelling alone?), especially whether you are interested in a special offer (40.000 CLP per day single room, 50.000 CLP per day double room) at the main hotel for the time of the conference ( 

On the first day of the conference, we will kindly ask you to pay an inscription fee of 100.000 Chilean Pesos (roughly 150 US Dollars). 

Participants from Chile may transfer a reduced fee of 70.000 CLP until the end of october on the following bank account: 

(In an early version of the website, we mentioned the early inscription also as an option also for international visitors - very high international transaction fees made us descart this option) 

{How to get to Talca}

Participants arriving to Santiago airport on sunday 7th, send us your flight numbers at your earliest convenience. This way we will organize the transfer from Santiago to Talca, and it also allows us to react in real time to delayed arrivals. 

If you arrive prior to Sunday, 7th of January 2018 to Santiago (or afterwards), you can get in contact with us if you want our help in organizing your travel (by bus) to Talca. The transfer from Santiago Airport will NOT make a detour through Santiago (and getting from Santiago first to the airport outside the city in order to join our transfer would be more time- and money consuming than getting a regular bus from Santiago to Talca) 


We offer assistance for non-Chilean residents in finding and reserving accomodation that is conveniently located with respect to the conference venue. Other than the aforementioned room reserve four star hotel Ecohotel (with special offers for international participants), we can also help in finding housing for smaller budgets, such as cabins for doctoral students, for example. Simply ask us.
