The venue has free wifi throughout, either via eduroam or by signing up to “The Cloud”. (However, there is little to no mobile reception.)
The conference programme is available on this website; if you sign in, you can set up a personal programme for the week. Alternatively (and more useful in case the wifi gets overwhelmed), the programme is also available offline through the Confero app, which is available for Android and iOS.
The weather is unpredictable in this country. It is likely to be mild (highs of around 20°C/67°F, lows of 11°C/51°F), and you should bring a waterproof coat and/or umbrella. The venue is air-conditioned, but not aggressively so.
