The meeting is being organised by the research group on High Energy Sources in the Galaxy at the University of Jaén (Spain). The event will be hosted by the  Higher Polytechnic School located at the same university campus (building A-3).

The address is:
Escuela Politécnica Superior
Campus Las Lagunillas, A3
23071 Jaén (Spain)

The city of Jaén is located in the region of Andalusia in southern Spain and is the capital of the province with the same name. The local economy is strongly based on the olive oil industry. Actually, the Jaén landscape is often referred to as the 'olive tree sea'  due to its huge olive tree plantations. Its agriculture-based society has considerably evolved towards modernity while keeping most of the enchantment and tradition of the old times. The natural landscape around Jaén is actually very well preserved and the province is the home of some severely endangered species, such as the ellusive Iberian Lynx.

There are different ways to reach Jaén depending on the airport where you land. Landing at the closest Granada-Jaén airport is possibly the best way. A bus transfer direct to Jaén has been recently started  from this airport with four to five connections daily in both directions. The trip duration is 1h15m and costs about 15 euro. Alternatively, but less recommended, you can take a bus to the Granada Bus Station where another bus will connect you with Jaén almost every hour. The total duration of this alternative bus connection is at least 2 h and costs no more than 12 euro in total. You can also reach Jaén in nearly 1h from the airport by taxi. Unfortunately, the taxi will charge you about 100 euros due to the long distance of the trip (about 100 km). Renting a car at the Granada-Jaén airport is also another probably cheaper option you might consider.

If landing at Madrid-Barajas airport, our advice is to take a train from the Atocha Railway Station. There are up to four services daily and the trip lasts about 4 h, with Jaén being the final stop. You can also use the Spanish high velocity train (AVE) and stop in Córdoba after 1h45m. From there, you can take either a regional train to finally rach Jaén in 1h30m. Please check the corresponding train schedules to make sure not to miss the last Jaén connection. Buses from Córdoba to Jaén are also available. Finally, one could also consider landing at Málaga airport. The city of Málaga is also well connected with Jaén by bus and the trip lasts for about 3 h. 

In order to reach the conference venue from the different accommodations proposed by the SOC, we recommend to take any of the city buses that stop closest to the university (# 4, 7, 9 and 12). Nevertheless, all recommended places are within 15 to 30 min of walking distance to the campus.
