Note: we will have a van to-and-fro the Time Rugendas Hotel for all workshop attendees. It will depart from the hotel at 9:05am in the morning (Tue, Wed and Thu), and it will depart UAI after all events of the workshop are finished, that is at approx 6:30pm on Tue, and approx 5:45pm on Wed and Thu.
