GETTING FROM THE AIRPORT TO JERUSALEM
The Ben Gurion (aka TEL AVIV) International Airport is located
roughly 50km (40 minutes drive on a clear road) from Jerusalem.
The two main ways of getting from the airport to Jerusalem are:
1) Taxi. Finding one should be easy as soon as you step out
of the terminal building (at the arrival level). The price
should be roughly 270 NIS (about 70 USD, the rates are a little higher between 21:00 and 6:00).
We strongly recommend
to ask the driver for the price BEFORE getting on the Taxi.
2) A door-to-door shuttle service called NESHER. Their service
is a bit spartan (they usually insist on filling the shuttle
and sitting is a bit crowded), but effective. The price
should be about 70 NIS (roughly 20 USD). They are located near the
Taxis (just step out of the terminal building at the arrival
level and look for a sign or ask around). Make sure you located
the shuttles going to Jerusalem (there are also shuttles going
to other areas).
GETTING FROM THE HOTEL TO THE TALKS
All talks will take place at lecture hall 2 of the math institute. The Hebrew University campus is about 850 meters
(so about 12 minutes by foot) from the hotel. The mathematics institute is about another 5--10 minutes from the main gate.
A map of the route from the hotel to the main entrance of the university campus is
