== Tips and tricks ==
A normal lunch at CERN costs about 15 CHF, inclusive of one coffee and one delicious dessert.
 
A bus ride from the airport to CERN is free of charge, if you take a ticket at the vending machine in the baggage claim area. Should you miss that vending machine, a ticket will cost you 3.00 CHF. https://genevalunch.com/guides/travel/the-cheerful-traveler-geneva-airport-public-transport/
 
== Accommodation ==
 
The conference will take place in the CERN's main site (Meyrin). You can try your luck and search for an accommodation in one of the [http://smb-dep.web.cern.ch/en/CERN_Housing CERN Hostels].
 
Should the CERN hostels be full, or should you prefer to stay in Geneva, we advise you to consult your favourite on-line booking portal (www.booking.com, www.tripadvisor.com, www.trivago.com, www.expedia.com etc.) and to contact the hotel directly in order to identify the lowest tariff available for CERN users and collaborators (preferential tariffs may apply in some cases).
 
Hotels in the vicinity of "Gare Cornavin" (Geneva's main railway station), or along "Route de Meyrin", are particularly recommended. Tram number 18 links Gare Cornavin to CERN in 20' (see [http://www.tpg.ch/ timetable on the TPG's webpage]).
 
Notice that, by staying in hotel, youth hostel or at a campsite, you are entitled to receive a personal and non transferable Geneva Transport Card for free, which will allow you to use the whole public transportation system of Geneva for the length of your stay for free. This includes buses, trams, trains, and yellow taxi-boats - Mouettes. Just ask for it upon arrival on the reception.
