Here is a table of countries whose citizens require / do not require visas to enter Argentina.

If your passport has been issued by China AND you already have a United States or Schengen visa, you can ask for an Electronic Travel Authorization.

Several hotels close to Ciudad Universitaria are highlighted on this map 

The Workshop will take place in Aula 5 at the First floor of the Pabellón 1, Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales, Ciudad Universitaria. 

You can book a transfer from Ezeiza Airport to Buenos Aires online at the Tienda León webpage. There is a bus that takes you to the terminal downtown, from where you have to take a taxi or use public transportation to get to your hotel, and costs 290ARS. Tienda León also offers a remis service, which takes you from the Airport directely to your hotel, and costs 1070ARS.

To use the public transportation you need to buy a prepaid/rechargeable card called SUBE and add some credit to it. 

Buenos Aires is a big city, so it is good to take some precautions. Drivers may be very agressive, so be careful when crossing the street. It is usually safe to walk in touristic areas in the evening though you do not want to show up appealing electronic devices. There could be some pickpockets so it is good not to leave your belongings unattended in restaurants and bars, and -especially in buses- always keep your bagpack and purse in front of you, and your money in your front pocket. The usual precautions when traveling need to be applied here too.

Buses to reach Campus UBA -Ciudad Universitaria-: Numbers 28, 33, 34, 37, 42, 45, 107, 160. Warning: The destination sign on the bus should indicate "Ciudad Universitaria"

Electric power supply in Argentina is alternating current at 220 volts, 50 hertz.

Warning on possible ICM Satellites lodging scam

Some Invited Speakers of ICM 2018 Satellite Events, including the K-theory conference, were approached by telephone by people purporting to help with the booking of accommodation and requesting your credit card information. Some of those people claim to work for Expo Housing Services, a US based company. This is a scam.

The K-theory conference Organizing Committee has no relation whatsoever with Expo Housing Services. None of our partner hotels will take the *initiative* to get in touch with Participants to offer accommodation, and no one is authorized by the Organizing Committee to do it.
