26-27 October 2009, Porto, Portugal

Venue
The meeting will take place at Centro de Astrofisica. There will be internet facilities in the meeting room.

Travel
The modern international Airport in Porto has connections to most European destinations.

To travel between Porto airport and the town you have 2 options.
One option is to use the Metro. Metro's airport station is located in front of the arrivals zone. The metro station nearest the workshop venue is "Casa da Música", which is on the same line (violet line) as the airport. The journey time is 25 minutes, and there is a train every 20 minutes, from 6am to 1am. Its costs around 2 Euro.

Note that the Metro works on an open system (no barriers that will open upon presentation of a ticket) but controls are frequent. You need to be in possession of a validated ticket (tickets are validated before entering the train), otherwise you will be fined. For further details, see the Metro webpage.

Another option is to take a taxi. This is more expensive (25-30 Euro) and depending on the time of the day may in fact be slower than the Metro.
