THIRD INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON LOW ENERGY PARTICLE PHYSICS
LEPP-3 MEPhI 2015
October 23-24, 2015, Moscow, RUSSIA
National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute)
Third International Workshop on Low Energy Particle Physics (LEPP-3 MEPhI 2015) will be held in Moscow, Russia on October 23-24, 2015. The Workshop is hosted by the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow Engineering Physics University) and organized by the Laboratory for Experimental Nuclear Physics in support with COHERENT international collaboration. The Workshop serves as a review of the low energy particle physics with accent on experiments with low energy neutrinos and searching for dark mater and double beta-decay.

Arriving by plane
The closest airport is Domodedovo Airport in Moscow, which is about twenty miles from campus and recommended hotels. From the terminal, follow the signs to Ground Transportation, where you can take a taxi to campus/hotels or take a train to the Paveletskaya Metro Station and Metro to Kashirskaya station (see below).
International participants will be provided with transportation by organizers.
The fare to MEPhI from Domodedovo or Sheremetievo Airport should be around 2000 R. You can get an authorized taxi from a taxi stand outside each terminal. There is usually a short line and a dispatcher will place you in the next available taxi. During peak hours, the ride could take 45 minutes or more.
Subway & Train
Moscow has a comprehensive public transportation system known as the Moscow Metro or the “M,” with subway and airport connection trains running throughout the city
