3rd GPS/CSS Workshop


Accommodation is available in the nearby town of Tripolis and buses will be available to transport the participants each day to and from the workshop venue in the village.

The LOC has made block-bookings at 3 hotels for the week 28 May to 2 June and participants can book rooms from April 1 until April 30. Participants should approach the hotels directly either by Phone or Fax and I'm assured that hotel staff speak sufficient English to make the bookings. Please make sure that in your message or conversation refer to:
"Block bookings for the Astrophysics Workshop in Kerastari, organised by Tasso Tzioumis".

The room rates are quoted without breakfast, as a light breakfast will be available at the workshop before starting. If you do require a heavier breakfast, indicative prices are shown. The rates given should be pretty accurate but may vary by small amounts.

NB: Bookings are the responsibility of the participants and should be handled directly with the hotels.
If you do run into trouble please send us an email and we will try to help.

Please let us know what hotel you have been booked into so we can organise the bus transport.
