About the School

The summer school of TACL is primarily (but not exclusively) directed to master and doctoral students, and postdoctoral researchers. Four tutorials covering a topic in topology, algebra and categories in logic will be offered by leading researchers in these areas. The school is also an excellent opportunity for young researchers to meet and socialize in a vibrant scientific environment.

We are happy to announce the organization will offer accomodation during the school week (entering the 24/06/ and leaving the 29/06) for the first 50 interested attendees that register to the school. If you want to be announced of the opening of the registration period, please subscibe to the TACL mailing list in https://math.univ-cotedazur.fr/tacl/ .

Invited Tutorialists


All tutorials will be held in room T1, in the second floor of the mathematics building. Registration will be done in nearby room T2.

Registration fees

Conference standard (early): 240€ ---- Conference reduced: 190€. (see instructions below *)
Conference late (after 9 June): 300€.
Conference + school (no accommodation): 280€ ---- Conference + school with accommodation (during the school): 440€ (see information below **)
School only (no accommodation): 90€ ---- School with accommodation (during the school): 250€ (see information below **)

* The reduced fee for the conference is aimed at people who want to attend the conference and have limited funding. To apply for it, please send an email to 2024TACL@gmail.com before the early registration closes with the subject "reduced fee name_surname", briefly explaining your situation, and whether you are a speaker at the conference. The OC will make a decision as soon as possible, and if awarded, you will be provided with a discount "registration code" that you will be able to include in the registration form.
From the fees above, you can see that attendees to both the school and the conference get the reduced conference fee by default, so it is not necessary to apply for it in that case.

** Accommodation during the school (entering the 24/06, leaving the 29/06) will be offered to the first 50 people that register choosing that option. There will be limited single and shared rooms in the Residencia d'Investigadors and in the Hostal centric. If you have issues sharing a room, or want to share with a particular person or group of people (rooms from 2 to 4), let us know as soon as you register so we can try to accommodate your requests.

Local Information

The accomodation provided for the school is divided between the Residencia d'Investigadors and the Hostal centric. Both are very near the school venue, which is very close to Plaça Catalunya, in the city center.
To get from the airport to near the venue or to your accomodation, there are two main options:
  1. Taxi: The fare from the airport to the city center ranges between 30-40€ (depending on traffic and the time of day). You can request a receipt and pay by card, but splitting the fee might not be possible.
  2. Bus: The Aerobus runs from both airport terminals to Plaça Catalunya (last stop), which is a 15-minute walk from the accommodations above, and a 10-minute walk from the venue. The fare is 7.25€ (12.5€ for a round-trip ticket).
Please note that while Barcelona is a very safe city, it is also highly touristy, so there is a risk of pickpocketing. Please remain vigilant, especially at night and in busy areas.

Some restaurants

Barcelona is a very touristic city, and the venue is in the city center, so if you search in google or other engines you will find a plethora of restaurants and places to eat. Here we provide a very short list suggestions, of some places near the venue (10min walking radius according to google maps).
