The most usual way to reach Irkutsk is to fly by airplane. Irkutsk airport has two separate nearby terminals for domestic and international airlines. There are 5 daily flights from Moscow, whereas connections with other cities, including international flights, are far less frequent (to be improved in the summer period). The airport is assigned code IKT and listed in all major ticket offices (type "air ticket russia" in any Internet search system to obtain a list of sites). The airport is situated within the city so you need not much time to get to any destination in Irkutsk. Due to its location the airport is known by its short runway making a demand to aircraft's braking system at landing.
Another way to reach Irkutsk is to travel by train via Trans-Siberian railway. You will find a great number of ticket suppliers by searching in the Internet with "train tickets russia". Please notice that Russian Railways are not so much integrated in international business so you may need to register your electronic tickets or make additional payments and hold conversation in Russian.
We try to meet in the point of arrival all attendees who had made the corresponding request in Registration Form. Look for a person with the plate 'IEEE SIBIRCON'. Follow this person's instructions. If you cannot find the person or find yourself in unexpected situation, use the following emergency calls:
We organize taxi transportation to Listvyanka with rigid prices 1300 or 1600 rubles per car for usual car and minivan, respectively. The meeting person will pay to the driver for those attendees who have no rubles. We expect that they return their shares in US dollars or Euro at registration.
There will also be free conference buses from the airport to Listvyanka with the following schedule:
Do not forget to tell the name of hotel you are going to (the majority of attendees who booked through the Organizing Committee will live in "Pribaikalskaya", this is the first hotel en route).
Be sure that the Organizing Committee traces all flight delays, so the schedule will be adjusted correspondingly. No one attendee should be lost.
Important: Generally, you need cash in Russia. We suggest to bring about 20000 rubles or equivalent in USD or Euro. There are limited bank cards capabilities in Listvyanka. Moreover, on Saturday and Sunday, as well as in early hours, all exchange offices in Irkutsk will be closed.
It is complicated to travel to the destination by their own for non-Russian speaking people. So the following instructions are intended mainly for Russian citizens and are given in Russian. If you can read these you can try to get to the place by your own.
