There are plenty of exchange offices throughout the city, as well as ATM machines that
deliver cash from the credit/debit cards. Many shops also accept cards.
Don't change too much money in advance.
From Pulkovo international airport: After you pass the customs, check
if there is anyone with the "Euler International Mathematical Institute"
poster. The person may drive you to your hotel or to the Euler Institute.
The default cost is 900 Rubles. Don't use a private taxi that looks suspicious,
ask if the driver can give you a regular receipt.
If you wish to save money, it is not too difficult to reach the Institute
or your hotel by public transportation. Take bus 13 or minibus going to the
metro station "Moskovskaya" (20-25 Rubles). Take the metro (you have to buy
a token to enter, 20 Rubles) going north, the blue line. Depending on your
goal, get out at "Petrogradskaya" or "Chyornaya rechka".
From Moscow railway station: Go underground and take the metro train, the green line,
and change at the next stop "Nevsky prospect" to the blue line,
then go to "Petrogradskaya" or "Chyornaya rechka".
From both stations, you either walk or you can take bus no.

- REGISTRATION AND FEES
Registration starts at 8:30 on July 3d.
A short opening address is at 9:30, immediately followed by the first talk.
Late registration is possible during breaks but please avoid it if you can.
The conference fee is 100 Euro = $140 = 4370 Rubles payable in cash in any
of the three currencies, cards excluded. You'll be given a receipt.
The fee for the participants from Russian institutions is paid from the RFBR grant.
The fee is used to cover lunches, coffee breaks, the welcome and farewell parties,
and the boat trip with the conference dinner on board, plus some other minor items.
If an accompanying person participates, the fee is increased accordingly.
Free lunches for registered participants will be served at a sushi restaurant 10' walk
from the Euler Institute at about 13:30, near the Kamenoostrovskij bridge.
If you plan to skip the lunch please tell so at the secretaries' desk
before the beginning of the morning session - otherwise the restaurant will bill the Symposium budget.
Unregistered participants are welcome to join but they have to announce
their will and pay at the secretaries' desk before 9:30, for a seat to be booked.
There is another restaurant nearby at the Dvorets Molodezhi, also 10' walk but down the river.
There will be two coffee/tea breaks, in the morning and in the afternoon,
free of charge to everyone
Following the general idea of the Symposium there will be talks on
condensed matter and high energy/mathematical physics, mixed up almost
in an antiferromagnet order (but with some frustrations). We urge
the speakers to present their topics in a pedagogical way understandable
to all parties. The chairpersons are instructed to leave ample time for
questions and discussions after each talk, so please do not use the
full time as in the schedule, for your presentation!
Best if you bring an USB memory stick with a .pdf or .ppt file to plug it
into the local computer beforeyour session starts: unless you forbid,
we would like to post your presentation on the Symposium site so that many people could enjoy it!
There is also a large blackboard in the audience.
The Institute has several free offices with blackboards where you can discuss
things with your friends.
- INTERNET AND PRINTING
Several computers will be available for that. Ask the secretariat for
the login password, and other advice.
- EXPLORING THE CITY
It's the best time of year in a beautiful city. We intend to end the
official programme before 18:00 every day. Ask for maps and city guides
in your hotel or from the secretaries' desk. The "white nights" with dim light
at midnight and bridges hanging up in the sky leaving space for big boats,
are especially spectacular. It is also high season in theatres and concert halls.
When ranging the city beware, however, of street thefts. Don't carry large
amounts of cash, always keep a close eye on your purse and camera.
An experienced thief will take it out of your backpack before you notice it!
There are street gangs that specialize on tourists. A good security idea
is not to be alone.
On Sunday, July 5th there will be no talks in the afternoon,
only "group work". We scheduled a boat trip along the Neva starting at 8 PM,
which will be accompanied by the conference dinner.
Is unpredictable. The average temperature in July is about 18 C.
It is usually 20+ C during the day, seldom above 30 C. It may be rainy.
Check the forecast.
