Activity

La Cristalera, Miraflores de la Sierra, Madrid, Spain. July 1-5, 2013.

Introduction:

Welcome to VII International Summer School on Geometry, Mechanics and Control organised by the Geometry,  Mechanics and Control (GMC) Network.

The seventh edition of the International Summer School on Geometry, Mechanics and Control will be held in La Cristalera, Madrid, Spain, in July 1-5, 2013.

The school is oriented to young researchers, Ph.D. and postdoctoral students in Mathematics, Physics and Engineering, in particular those interested in focusing their research on geometric control and its applications to mechanical and electrical systems, and optimal control. It is intended to present an up-to-date view of some fundamental issues in these topics and bring to the participants attention some open problems, in particular problems related to applications.  This year the courses will be delivered by:

  • M. J. Gotay, Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, Canada.
    • Momentum Maps, Constraints and Classical Field Theories.
  • P. S. Krishnaprasad, University of Maryland, USA.
    • Geometry of Collectives: Control, Dynamics and Reconstruction.
  • D. Peralta Salas, Instituto de Ciencias Matemáticas (CSIC-UAM-UC3M-UCM), Spain.
    • Topological structures in steady fluid flows.

This Summer School is a post-graduate course of CSIC on science and physical technologies.

This School is an activity within the ICMAT Severo Ochoa Excellence Program.

How to get here:

Arrival by plane

You can take a taxi from the airport, but this is an expensive choice (at least 90 Euros, but be sure to ask for the price beforehand). You can also take a taxi from the Airport to Plaza de Castilla (around 45 Euros) and then take a bus to Miraflores.

A good choice is taking the Metro from the Airport to Plaza de Castilla, and then a bus to Miraflores. At the airport, take the Metro (underground), Line 8 (pink) to "Colombia" (3 stations). Transfer in Colombia to line 9 (purple) to "Plaza de Castilla" (3 stations). This should take about 25 minutes. In any case you can ask for a free map of the Metro when you buy a ticket.

Once you have reached Plaza de Castilla there are a lot of bus stops between the two big inclined towers. Only one (number 725) goes to Miraflores de Sierra. Look for number 725 (Madrid - Plaza de Castilla to Miraflores de la Sierra, Bustarviejo). Here you can find the current timetable for bus 725.

A taxi from Plaza de Castilla to Miraflores costs minimum 70 Euros.

The trip to Miraflores de la Sierra takes approximately 60 minutes and departure is aprox. each hour from 7.30 a.m. to 23.15 p.m. Your stop is the next after "Soto del Real". Once you get off, you still have to walk around 20 minutes up along the main road to get to La Cristalera.

A one-way ticket to Miraflores by bus number 725 costs about 5.10 Euros.

Arrival by train

Coming from the North, the train station is usually Chamartin. From Chamartin, you can take the Metro (line 10: dark blue) to Plaza de Castilla but it is only one station and it is also easy to walk from Chamartin to Plaza Castilla. If you arrive at Atocha, you can take the Metro (line 1: light blue, 13 stations) to Plaza Castilla and follow the above mentioned instructions for the bus.

Arrival by car

Take the big periferial highway M-40. If you come from the south, Portugal, or the Zaragoza Highways, take direction North (N-I). If you come from the Burgos Highway (N-I) take the direction M-607 Tres Cantos- Colmenar Viejo. Go out of the M-40 to the M-607 Highway towards Tres Cantos-Colmenar viejo. When the Highway ends (roughly 30 km) take the direction Miraflores. After 30 km you will reach the village. Once there, follow the signs towards La Cristalera, or Puerto de la Morcuera. One km outside the village you will find the entrance to the residence on your left (but watch out for it since sign is not a big one and may be missed.
