General Information For Participants

The workshop will be held at the Mount Zion Hotel. Below you will find important information about some of the workshop logistics.

Travel Arrangements

You will be arriving at Ben-Gurion Airport, which is located about 15 minutes from Tel Aviv and 40 minutes from Jerusalem. When you arrive at the airport, please exit the building and turn left where you will find the official Hadar taxi rank. A taxi from the airport to Jerusalem costs around NIS 270 (roughly, about US $75) and takes about 45 minutes (please ask the driver to take you to Mount Zion Hotel in Jerusalem). There may be some surcharges on weekends and late at night.

Weather

Jerusalem is about 800 meters (2,640 feet) above sea level, at geographic latitude 31 47' N and longitude 35 13' E. Temperatures are usually in the high 40's (~8 C) and may be rainy. Chances of snow are slim to none.

Dining And Events

The conference will provide two conference dinners, morning tea/lunch/afternoon tea each day as social functions.

On Sunday evening, a Gala dinner will be held with all conference participants. The dinner will be held in “The Vila” at the Mount Zion Hotel from 19:00. Another dinner will be held on Monday from 19:00. The cost of both dinners will be covered for SOG attendees by the hosting institution.

On Monday evening after dinner, conference delegates are invited to a guided bus tour in Jerusalem.
