Information for Participants

  • Registration. Please go here and click on ‘Online Signup’. After registering an account with the San Sebastian Summer Courses system, you’ll be asked to provide some information about yourself. On the next page, there are various options, including options to have lunch at the conference venue, a conference dinner, and a reduced price for rooms in a nearby residence (more on that below). You’ll then be asked to pay, either using a credit card or bank transfer.
  • Catering. Lunches at the Palacio Miramar are plentiful and excellent (3-4 courses and including wine), but not the cheapest available options. The price of 17 Euros is already subsidised. There is a refectory in the building, and some restaurants are in walking distance from the Palacio. Of course we hope that many of you will sign up to at least some of the lunches, so we can continue our discussions. The conference dinner will be held at a Sidreria, a cider house, near San Sebastian. We’ll be having a ‘txotx’, a traditional Basque dinner and cider tasting. The price should be all inclusive (i.e., transport, food & drink).
  • Accommodation. Accommodation in San Sebastian is very expensive in high season. In the registration form, you will find a checkbox ‘Accommodations with reservation in their webpages’ (Sorry for the bad English). If you tick it, the summer courses administration will send you an email with promotional codes redeemable in the following two residences: A) Olarain is a residence hall close to the conference venue with very good facilities (€ 66.90 for a single, €94.05 for a double room until 30 June 2017; LIMITED AVAILABILITY!) B) Agud Querol is slightly more modest, but also cheaper (€43.50 for a single, €74). There are currently enough rooms available, but we could not reserve them. So please book asap. In either case, you will have to do the booking on your own after receiving the email from the administration.
  • Publication. As in previous years, there will be a special issue of the Journal of Economic Methodology with selected papers from the conference. We’ll send participants a separate email with more information about the special issue in due course.
