ICGSE 2017 will be held at Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina (UCA). More specifically at the Building San Jose – Auditoriums UCA (Edificio San José – Auditorios UCA), Av. Alicia M. de Justo 1600. Check Google Maps for details here.
Note that UCA has several 4 large (very similar) buildings along the Av. Alicia M. de Justo, between roads Azucena Villaflor and Rosario Vera Peñaloza. ICGSE will be at the southernmost building, the San José Building. The building on its southern end looks onto Rosario Vera Peñaloza road. However, the entrance to the conference is on the northern end of the building. See map.
To travel from the Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel, the ICSE main conference venue location, to UCA there are various options:
- Walking: There is a scenic walk, 20 to 30 minutes, along Puerto Madero.
- Biking: There are a couple of (free) city bike hire places close to the Sheraton and there are some drop off points close to UCA. 10 minute ride.
- Bus: There are plenty of buses that connect both venues. You will need a SUBE card to pay for public transport. Bus number 152 is the most frequent of them all, but the 130 and 33 also work. Depending on the traffic the bus will take between 10 and 15 minutes, add an extra 5 for the walk. See map
- Taxi: A Taxi will cost approximately 5 USD and will take a route similar to that of the bus or the walk. Depending on the traffic it can take between 10 and 15 minutes.
