LATA - Language and Automata Theory and Applications. The 6th International Conference on Language and Automata Theory and Applications, March 5-9, 2012, A Coruña, Spain.
The history of LATA starts in 2007. After three consecutive editions organized in Tarragona, the 4th edition (LATA 2010) took place in Trier, Germany while the 5th edition was back in Tarragona. Now it is the time for a new place to host LATA 2012, this time we go to A Coruña, Galicia, Spain.

LATA 2012 will take place in the Computer Science Faculty (Facultade de Informática) at the University of A Coruña. The Computer Science Faculty is located on the Campus de Elviña, outside of the city.
The address is:
A special line of buses (called "E" and in the front panel of buses we see "E Universidad") runs from Plaza de Pontevedra to campus Elviña with a frequency of about 5 to 10 minutes and an uninterrupted schedule from 7:20 to 23:05 during working day. Saturdays there is a bus approximatively each 30-40 minutes. From Plaza de Pontevedra to campus Elviña it takes about 15-20 minutes to arrive. The route is shown in the following map. We ca see also the bus stops as well as the train station (Est. Ferrocarril) and the bus station (Est. Autobuses).
As there are several hotels near Plaza de Pontevedra, this could be the bus stop used by most LATA 2012 participants. In fact, Plaza de Pontevedra is the main hub for city buses, with several bus stops. In particular, the bus stop for line E (Universidad) is placed at Calle Juan Flórez 12, and to make easier the location of the stop, note that there is a Zara Home/Kids shop at this address.

More information about local buses here (Spanish pages).
If you use a car, better to consult a route planner (like Michelin route planner) for instructions on how to reach the Faculty of Computer Science. There is also available information about times, tolls, etc. We give only several hints that could be useful. Most of the ways go through Ave. Alfonso Molina. If you come form outside of A Coruña, on the right side of the street you should see the following landmarks, the bridge for pedestrians (Paso Peonil) and the boat (Barquiño). After that we change the direction through Ave. Sant Cristóbal, following a common way for cars coming from A Coruña too. After Carrefour and Seat, we turn right and we follow the way to Campus de Elviña.
