In order to defray the costs of attending the conference, travel allowances will be offered to students and needy researchers. There are two sources: one from NSF (grant number CCF-1724073) for students from US institutions, and one from the local organizers. The details of the application procedure will be announced on this web site in due time.
A visa for Latvia may be needed for attending the conference, e.g., for citizens of China, India, and Russia. See the visa website of the Latvian government for the exact rules for short-term stay visas. If a visa is needed, please get in touch with your local Latvian consulate as soon as possible. Feel free to contact the local arrangements team if you need a letter to obtain your visa.
There is a tourism information bureau Welcome to Riga in Sector E (Schengen area). We recommend you to visit it and take a free map of Riga. You can also purchase Riga public transport tickets, phone cards, etc. using your credit card.
From Airport (Lidosta) to the city center (Old Riga - Vecrīga)
Bus No. 22 / Minibus No.222: It costs €2 (if you buy a ticket from the driver; €1,15 if you buy a ticket ahead of time). There is a "ticket vending machine" in the bus stop. You can check the time table here / here and the route here / here.
"11.novembra krastmala" and "Autoosta" are the closest stops to the old town.
Taxi: A queue of taxis will be waiting for you outside the arrivals area. A typical ride to Old town Riga or the city center should cost no more than €15.
The train station is also very close to the old town. There are many different exits and so it is better to ask the direction to the old town.
There are train connections from Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Minsk. You can check the website here and time table here.
Riga is more than 800 years old. Each century has left its marks in the architecture in the Old Town and City Center, where the cultural heritage coexists with the quick pace of modern living.
From the University of Latvia, you can reach many tourist attractions by foot. A walk in the Old Town is one of the things you can't miss. See the map below with some easily reachable attractions from the conference venue.
