LACAME 2018 will be organized by the Universidad de Santiago de Chile (USACH). You can reach the USACH campus easily by subway (locally known as "metro") at line 1 Estación Central station. To use any public transportation (except taxis), you will need a transportation card ("BIP card"), which can be purchased (just one time), and charged with money in any metro station (https://www.metro.cl/guia-viajero/).

To pay cash any purchase you have to use local money. Just in few places (as some restaurants and hotels) it is possible to pay directly with U$ dollars. Your credit card can be used at any place, except in taxis where just few of them have card charge system.
The organizing committee has two suggested hotels. However, the accommodation place is optional and you can choose and directly book the accommodation that better fits you. We invite you to make your reservations with time since in November high season begins.
