VIII Latin American Symposium on Nuclear Physics and Applications    

Welcome to Santiago, Chile

Santiago's international airport (SCL) is the main port of entrance. In its webpage you can find information about airlines, transportation to and from the airport, and much more. For fast facts about travel to Chile click here.


Santiago has a Mediterranean climate and well-defined seasons. Summer (Dec.-Feb.) is dry and hot with temperatures that can reach over 87 F. At night it cools down slightly, and on the coast this temperature drop can be more extreme.


Metro de Santiago is the main and recommended mean of transportation within Santiago's metropolitan area.


The symposium takes place on the campus of the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Mathematics of the University of Chile. The campus is close to two Line-2 metro stations: Toesca and Parque O'Higgins.
