All lecturers, tutors and selected students who do not live in São Paulo will be housed in the Solarium Hotel. The Solarium Hotel is located at a park in the city of Osasco in the Greater Sao Paulo area (about 100 m from the border with the city of Sao Paulo). The Solarium Hotel is 4.8 km (3 miles) from the NeuroMat building at the campus of the University of Sao Paulo, where LASCON will be held. LASCON participants housed at the hotel will have free breakfast, wifi and parking. Extra expenses, e.g. minibar items, laundry, phone calls or meals other than breakfast, will be paid separately by each guest at check-out time.
The hotel address is: Rua Conde Luís Eduardo Matarazzo, 100, Osasco – SP, 05356-000
The organizers will provide transportation from the hotel to the university and back for the duration of the school, except on Sundays and on special days (see below). The vans will leave the hotel every morning at 8.30 am and will return from the NeuroMat building to the hotel every evening at about 8 pm.
January 7, 14 and 21 (first three Thursdays): On these three days there will be school get-togethers in the evenings and the vans will leave the university at about 6.30 pm to take hotel guests directly to the places (to be announced) where the get-togethers will take place. The vans will not take guests back to the hotel after the ends of the get-togethers, so guests will have to return to the hotel by their own means. Group taxi rides are recommended.
January 9, 16 and 23 (Saturdays): On these three days school activities will end earlier and so the vans will accordingly return earlier to the hotel. Depending on the guests choices the vans may take them to a place in town different from the hotel, but then return to the hotel will be on the guests own.
January 29 (last day of school): On this day school activities will end at 6 pm and the vans will return to the hotel shortly after.
To go by taxi to the hotel: Not all taxi drivers know the hotel location, and even using navigation tools like Waze or Google Maps they may go to a wrong place because there is a street with the same name in the city of Sao Paulo (remember that the hotel is in the city of Osasco). So, guests are strongly recommended to ask the taxi driver to take the following route:
- Get to “Av. Corifeu de Azevedo Marques” and follow it until “Av. Dr. Candido Motta Filho” (shortly after passing by an “Extra” supermarket and a Burger King — visible on the right).
- Turn left on “Av. Dr. Candido Motta Filho” and go up for about 1.4 km until Av. Martin Luther King. You will see a sign indicating the border between the cities of Sao Paulo and Osasco.
- Go round the roundabout as if returning to Sao Paulo and take the third exit (the last before getting back to “Av. Dr. Candido Motta Filho”).
- This is “Rua Conde Luiz Eduardo Matarazzo” and the hotel gate is about 100 m from the roundabout exit to the right.
