Howto get to the IUM.
"Smolenskaya"(appr. 7 min.):
From "Kropotkinskaya"(appr. 12 min): Get out of the metro through the exit to the Gogolevskiy boulevard. Pass through the arch, turn to the left and cross the boulevard. Pass five blocks along Gagarinskiy side-street, then turn to the right and walk about 50 meters along Bolshoy Vlasyevskiy side-street. IUM is located on your left in a four-storey building inside the yard.

Location of the Steklov Mathematical Institute
The Institute is located at the corner of Gubkina str. and Vavilova str. The formal address is Ulica Gubkina 8. It can be reached through both the gates faced ul.Gubkina and the gates faced ul.Vavilova (ul.=ulica=street)
It can be reached from
the metro station "Akademicheskaya" (15 min walk): take the NW exit
from the metro, then walk along Dmitriya Ul'yanova street (with the boulvard
in the middle) to the next big street (with railways for trams) called
Vavilov street, turn right and alk less than one block until (open) iron
gates on the left side (Vavilov st.40). Immediately after the gates there is
the 3-store building of the computer center of
From the metro station "University": trams 39 and 3 to the stop "Ulica Gubkina" (southbound).
From the metro station "Leninskii Prospekt": trams 39 and 3 to the stop "Ulica Gubkina" (northbound).

Guesthouse at Steklov.
All rooms are equipped with shower, WC, TV, refrigerator, and electric kettle. You can find microwave oven and iron at room 13. Since there is no facilities for breakfast neither at Steklov nor in the close proximity, we recommend to buy food in advance. The closest grocery store is "Sed'moi Kontinent" (Seventh Continent). It is located in the same block as Steklov, from the opposite side (facing ul.Dmitriya Ul'yanova). It is upscale, but the choice is huge and meets everyone's needs (even caviar). All major credit cards accepted (safe). Another store is located right across Ul.Dmitriya Ul'yanova. On the corner of Dm.Ul'yanova and Vavilov st. (faced Dm.Ul'yanova) is located the (soviet-old-fashioned-style) boulangerie (prices affordable for common Muscovites). You can also buy fruits, vegetables, and snacks in cabin-like shops ("palatkas", or tents) located along Vavilov and Gubkin streets (cash only; prices reasonable).
ATM: Located at the "Seventh Continent" ??
Computer facilities. All the participants can brouse Internet from computers located in the Poncelet Lab. when at the IMU. At the Steklov Math. Inst., ask local organizers to assist with the access to computers at the Steklov (L.Chekhov, M.Kazaryan et al).
