Accomodation cost

Full board accomodation at the Centre de Physique des Houches costs 73 euros per night per participant. Participants to the school are expected to arrive on Monday March 24th, and to leave on Friday April 4th, which means that they will spend 11 nights on site. Therefore, the total cost of the local expenses will be 800 euros per participant for the duration of the school.

Important notice: in order to encourage participants to attend the school in its entirety, the Centre de Physique des Houches will charge the full amount of 800 euros for every participant, no matter how many days are actually spent at the school.
