We have funds to cover living expenses of the speakers and, possibly, some participants.

Those interested in staying for longer visits to Rio could apply to IMPA for its summer program

If you are interested in giving a talk or attending, please register here and send a brief CV by email to aftab by September 30th.  


We suggest two options (depending on your budget). Both are close to the Largo do Machado metro station and the bus stop (485) to UFRJ is a short walk. 4 people can also share an uber or taxi which would be a bit more than the bus fare. 

1) Hotel Petit Rio (200 reais per night for 2 people).

2) Hostel Villa 25 (shared dormitories for 50 reais per night).
