The 2nd Team Meeting of the SHARDS collaboration will be hosted by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) and it will be held in the Physics Building. We will meet in the Astrophysics Department Seminar (ground floor, west wing, just go to your left when you enter the Physics Building). The dates are May 13 and 14, 2015.

Talks and events

Please, send a title for your presentation using the following web form, also indicating when you will arrive and leave Madrid, so we can plan the talks and events accordingly. We will start early on Wednesday morning and finish after lunch on Thursday so people can get back home on the same day, if they wish.

We will make a reservation for lunch in the same Physics Building for Wednesday, and charge a registration fee of 25€ (to cover that and coffee breaks in both days). On Thursday, we propose to have a group lunch at Restaurante Aynaelda. Please, fill the registration info about meals so we have a head count.


These are the hotels we normally recommend to people visiting Madrid and coming to UCM:
  • Hotel T3 Tirol, Calle del Marqués de Urquijo 4. This one is close to our university, just two stations away by underground.
  • Hotel NH Zurbano, Calle Zurbano 79-81. This hotel is normally used by people attending JWST meetings in Madrid.
  • NH Alberto Aguilera, Calle de Alberto Aguilera 18. Used by Herschel Science Center meetings.
  • Hotel HUSA Princesa, Calle Princesa 40. This one is also very close to the university.
