When planning your back flights, please take into account the late return to
Moscow on September 9. Preferable is to book your back flight on Sept. 10+ with
overnight in Moscow (not included in the meeting fee). This is the best option
if you think about spending some days in Russia for touristic purposes; we
recommend doing it rather after than before the fieldtrip. If you wish to leave
on Sept. 9 please ensure that you have enough time to get to the airport. In
this case, we recommend to book your return flight from the Sheremetyevo
airport as it is located on our way back to Moscow on September 9 (see the map
of airports in the How to come section).
