11-12/4/2016 | IFISC (Mallorca)

The school will take place at the University of Balearic Islands Campus. The UIB Campus is located 7.5 km north of Palma downtown, in the middle of a scenic landscape, and quite close to the mountains in the "Serra de Tramuntana" range. A map of the campus can be found here.




Classes will take place in the seminar room of the IFISC building, in the basement floor. In case of late arrival, in order to avoid interruptions, a second room (room F11) will be equipped with a projector that will allow anyone to follow the ongoing lesson.



Lunches: there exists a wide range of options for having lunch at the campus. Almost every building has a cafeteria where you can have a Menu (first course, second course, drink and dessert) for around 7-8 €. You can check the list of campus cafeterias in the following link (Spanish only):

Feel free to go to any of these cafeterias, although we recommend you to have lunch at the Ramon Llull Building cafeteria or the Son Lledó cafeteria (here). It will be easier to find a free table in these cafeterias compared to other places. You can check the Menu of the day in the following link (Catalan only):

In the Ramon Llull cafeteria you can also order a hamburger or a sandwich.
