How to reach

KICSS’2011 will be held at Academy of Mathematics and Systems Science (AMSS), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Here we just say how to reach AMSS, CAS.

AMSS is at the northeast corner of the Basic Scientific Research Campus (基础科学园区). And the campus is in the southwest of Baofusi Bridge (保福寺桥) at North 4 Ring Road (北四环路). Whichever vehicle you take, the Baofusi Bridge (保福寺桥) is the most important location for you to find AMSS.

At the North Gate of AMSS, there is a bus station named West of Baofusi Bridge (保福寺桥西) where Bus No 26, 47, 498, 85, 466, 641, 913 and T9 stop. At the East Gate of AMSS, there is a bus station named South of Baofusi Bridge (保福寺桥南) where Bus No 319, 79, 630, 86 and 660 stop. And there are two subway stations nearby. One is Zhichunlu Station (知春路站), where you can take Line 10 and Line 13. As shown in figure below, leave AMSS from the East Gate and then turn right, go straight along the Zhichun road to a crossroad until you find the Zhongguancun Donglu (中关村东路) where a famous 4-star hotel Jade Palace Hotel (翠宫饭店) locates at the southwest of the crossroad. Zhichunlu Subway Station (知春路站) is 400 meters east away from the hotel. The 2nd subway station is Zhichunli (知春里站) at the Line 10. It is very close to Jade Palace Hotel.
