Venue, Accommodation & Transport

PHISCC 2016 will be held in Cape Town, South Africa on the SAAO grounds, Observatory Rd, Observatory, Cape Town 7925 (see map)

We have made a block booking of rooms at a special price of R1000/night at the Protea Hotel Mowbray (see map)
Address: Liesbeek Avenue off Liesbeek Parkway, Cape Town, South Africa, Cape Town, 7925
The hotel is a short (5 minute), safe walk from the SAAO grounds.
There is a mixture of single and double rooms available.

To book:Please use this link to ensure that your booking gets the special PHISCC rate (make sure that it says "PHISCC Workshop" at the top of the page).

Accommodation for those staying on after the PHISCC meeting:
The Protea Hotel is a 5 minute drive to the UCT Upper Campus, so very convenient to stay on there if you are booking a car.

If you would prefer to be within walking distance of the UCT campus for the splinter meetings, there are various B&B options available including:
Little Scotia Guest House
Knightsbury Guest House
Devonshire House

You should book your flight to arrive at the Cape Town International Airport.

A taxi from the airport to the hotel should cost you ~ZAR300.

We have purposely arranged to hold the meeting at a location within easy walking distance (~6 minute walk) from the preferred hotel. However, if you would like to hire a car, this can be done at the airport.
