Travel arrangements

Travel arrangements

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the European Behavioral Economics Meeting at the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT) and the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW).

Invited full week participants will be reimbursed for travelling to the meeting - please note that all arising travel expenses and accommodation costs are to be borne by you initially and then submitted to the co-sponsors. Once here, you will be given a claim form to fill in and sign. Send all receipts, including boarding passes for any flights to be reimbursed, together with this form to your designated sponsor.

Please book your flights early to ensure that you can get a cheap ticket - we will refund standard economy fare tickets but we will not reimburse flex tickets. For non-European flights, we can cover the total amount in case you are traveling back and forth to Berlin. If you are planning other (research) stops in Europe, we will consider this on a case-by-case basis. Please simply suggest an appropriate cost-splitting rule. Suggested arrival is Sunday, June 16, 2013 afternoon and suggested departure is Saturday morning, June 22. Please let us know the cost of your ticket (or send a copy of the booking confirmation), which helps us to get the reimbursement process started.

The designated group hotel Hotel Großer Kurfürst is located within a short walking distance to the campus and offers a rate of €89 for a single room per night.
