Practical Info

This page will be updated periodically.

For the invited / contributing speakers

Most speakers will be lodged in the Hotel La Residence Paulista, near the famed Avenida Paulista. The hotel is only a couple of blocks away from the Metro station "Consolação" (Line 3 - Green). Below one can find an interactive Google Map of the hotel's surroundings.

There will be a bus shuttle service to transport the speakers between the hotel and the conference venue. The shuttle schedule during the conference days will be the following:

  • July 17th (Friday), 20th (Monday), 21st (Tuesday) and 22nd (Wednesday): Hotel -> IFUSP 8:00, IFUSP -> Hotel 18:00
  • July 18th (Saturday) and 23rd (Thursday): Hotel -> IFUSP 8:00, IFUSP -> Hotel 12:30

General information

If you are not a speaker and are looking for accommodation near the venue, we suggest that you search online booking sites such as Booking.com, Expedia and Trip Advisor (Disclaimer: The conference organizers are not responsible for the service of hotels). As a general rule, we recommend places near the Metro stations in the lines 3 (Green) and 4 (Yellow). Both are connected at the stations "Consolação" (Line 3 - Green) and "Paulista" (Line 4 - Yellow), which are connected by an underground passage. Please beware that the Metro lines may get very crowded at rush hours.

The weather in São Paulo during winter can be quite volatile. Most likely temperatures will be pleasant but occasionally one may be confronted with temperatures between 12 and 28 degrees Celsius. Sometimes it is not easy to judge how the weather will evolve throughout the day.
