All participants will be staying in hotels in Cotonou, close to the Workshop site. Please indicate which kind of room you wish and if you accept to share your room with someone else. The accommodation will be paid directly to the hotel by the organizers if the full registration fee (see below) has been paid.

For convenience, each participant is requested to pay a total sum of either FCFA 450,000, Euros 650 or $US 850, to cover all the costs for their stay (registration, hotel accommodation, meals, excursions, miscellanea). A receipt will be issued, which the participant must countersign. For those also attending in addition the COPROMAPH School these fees become FCFA 700 000, Euros 1,100 or $US 1,500.

Those participants wishing to stay in a hotel different from the place of accommodation foreseen by the organizers may ask for the necessary information, but they should then arrange for their accommodation themselves, including the payment for the ensuing costs. However, in order to avoid problems, it is imperative to reserve a room well a month in advance before arrival in Cotonou. Moreover, the costs to be paid for the Workshop itself then amount to either FCFA 230,000, Euros 350 or $US 450 to cover for the registration and local meals on the site of the Workshop. In case of attendance of the School as well, these fees are FCFA 400 000, Euros 600 or $US 800.

A local organization committee will be set-up to welcome you on your arrival at the international airport of Cotonou, and to take you to your place of accommodation. It is imperative that all participants do inform the organizing committee of the details of their travel arrangements through the above mentioned COPROMAPH SECRETARIAT addresses.

The city itself and its surroundings are special attractions. Beaches are close to the hotels which often possess their own swimming pool.

Benin society is rich in history and culture. If there is enough interest, tours could be organized to some places of historical and cultural interest. Benin is situated in West Africa, between Nigeria and Togo. The climate is tropical and the temperature is close to 30°C.
