Getting to the venue

Most visitors will probably stay in Las Palmas center, close to "Parque Santa Catalina" (Santa Catalina´s Park). There's the Guagua bus 26 going from Santa Catalina´s Park to the university. See the map of Líneas Zona Universitaria (PDF) and stops and timetable. Get off the bus at Ciencias Básicas, which is one stop after Biblioteca Universitaria near the top of a steep hill and one stop before the final stop Campus Universitario, to reach the building of Informática y Matemáticas, we are in the room Aula 1-2, third door on the right after the main entrance.

Better is to stay around "Parque Santa Catalina" (Santa Catalina´s Park), as the bus central station is there as well.

Getting to the centre of Las Palmas from the airport (LPA)

When you have left the baggage pickup area, while still in the airport building turn right and at the end of the building take the escalator one level up to the departures level. Leave the building here, follow the signs for busses. Cross the parking lot (you won't see the bus stop before actually going there), proceed to the second bus stop labelled "Las Palmas - San Telmo - Santa Catalina". Wait here for a bus of line 60 that gets you to the station "Santa Catalina" (some buses of the line stop earlier). A ticket should be 2.95 EUR. There's other lines going to Las Palmas San Telmo, which is another bus or taxi ride away from the city center (cab should be between 5 and 10 EUR depending on your exact destination - Exe Las Palmas was 7 EUR).

When you arrive at estacion Santa Catalina, you will be at a underground level. Take the escalator up. You are now on a city plaza (Parque Santa Catalina). For the directionally challanged, here is a hint: The harbor/coastline is to your east.
