limited number of grants may be provided by the organization to partially cover registration costs. Those applicants requiring partial support to attend the School may fill in the corresponding form in the personal area once registered. A non-refundable pre-registration of 150€ is required to secure your place in the School.

Hotel bookings are handled directly by the organization. Those participants wanting to share a room with a specific person should indicate it by email to winter@iac.es. Important: there is a limited number of available rooms at Hotel Nivaria, so we recommend early payment once you have been selected, in order to secure your stay at the same hotel of the lecturers. Once the available rooms at the Nivaria are completed booked, we will accommodate participants at the Aguere hotel, located within walking distance to the school venue. See the travel information section for more details.
