Practical information

Workshop location

The workshop will be hosted at Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS).

Access information is described in detail here

You can circulate easily in Seoul, see this link and also metro information.

  • 3 metro stations are close to KIAS:
    • Korea University station (exit #3) on brown line (#6)
    • Cheongnyangni station (exit #2) or Hoegi station (exit #1) on blue line (#1) 
    • then, from these stations, it is suggested to take a taxi from station exit to KIAS (see instructions below). Taxis accept cash and international credit cards. Alternatively, Korea University and Hoegi stations are about 15 min walk away from KIAS.
  • If you come to KIAS by taxi, you may show the following instructions to taxi driver.
  • Metro commuting from Seoul city center may take up to 45 min and can be crowded during morning rush hours. Taxi commuting may be even longer (1h), due to heavy morning traffic. Thus we recommend to stay at Holiday Inn and KP hotels indicated below if you can. 

Once you arrive to KIAS, go to building #1.
