Hotel suggestion

The local organizer Makrecka-Kuka Marina has made pre-bookings for several twin rooms for the MiP2018/MitoEAGLE participants in the following hotel: SemaraH Hotel Lielupe SPA - which is also the conference venue.
Since the number of rooms is limited, we suggest to share rooms. When sending the registration mail, please include the information about how many nights you would like to stay (arrival and departure dates) and with whom you would like to share a room. We will book the room for you.
If you prefer to reserve your room personally - contact us and we will send you an information on how to do it and how to get the special flat rate (for single rooms only).
Time Schedule


Instead of classical poster session, participants can present their work in poster-flash presentations during the conference

How to get there

By plane

Riga International Airport RIX.
From the Airport to the Conference Venue - the airport is located 15 km from the conference venue, however, there is no direct public transport from the Riga airport to Jurmala, thus there are 2 options to get to the conference venue:
  • Option 1. By taxi - 15-20 min drive; 12-18 EUR depends on company (you can also use Taxify). Note that you have to be careful not to overpay for taxi. Recommended taxi companies are BalticTaxi (a light green car), RedCab (a white car with red roof) or using the app β€œTaxify”.
  • Option 2. By public transport: Airport - Riga center - Jurmala. Take the bus No.22 at the Riga airport (stop Lidosta Riga; direction Abrenes iela) to the center of Riga (30 min) - exit at the stop Autoosta. (Alternative express minibus No.322 - exit at the stop Stacijas Laukums.) If you buy the ticket in a vending machine, the price is 1.15 EUR and if you buy the ticket from the bus driver, it is 2.00 EUR.
From there walk to the Riga Central station - it is a short-walking distance.
Take the train to the station Bulduri (30 min). Train directions: Riga-Sloka; Riga - Tukums 1 and 2; Riga - Dubulti.
The conference venue in 10-15 min walk from train station.

By coach

Riga International Coach Terminal. From Coach terminal to Conference Venue - take the train to Bulduri from Riga Central Station.
