Accommodation Information:
The University of Patras is located in the suburbs, 10 km NE of the downtown area. The participants have the options of either staying downtown or in one of the hotels along the coast near the University. In the first case they will have to use local transportation (bus or taxi). In the second case they may choose to walk (weather permitting) or get a ride by the people involved in the organization. With the second option in mind, a number of rooms has been reserved at Hotel Achaia Beach and will be available at the price of 69 Euros (single room) and 85 Euros (double room), provided that reservation is confirmed before 15 January 2008. The hotel is 2,5 km away from the PSSL venue and has the extra advantage of being close to some fine restaurants and in walking distance from the cafes, bars and restaurants of the coast of Rion, which starts getting lively at that time of the year. If you wish to book a hotel room yourself you may consult

Transportation Information:
Patras is located 220km W of the Athens airport. The best way to approach it is to use the Athens Suburban Railway (Proastiakos) which stretches west up to the town of Kiato, on the northern coast of the Peloponnese, 110km away from Patras. The idea is to arrange some private car or coach rides from Kiato to Patras, according to the date and time of arrival of most of you. Otherwise there is the option of getting on the (slow, narrow gauge) train to Patras. More details will appear here.
