The 13th international symposium on Origin of Matter and Evolution of Galaxies (OMEG2015) will be held in Beijing, China on June 24-27, 2015. This symposium is the 13th of such series, started 1988, to exchange the progress of nuclear astrophysics and related fields. As demonstrated in previous ones, this symposium series provide good opportunity to attract researchers in fields of nuclear physics, astrophysics, and more, with more than 100 participants.

The organizers of the conference reserved a capacity of guest rooms at the Prime Hotel (Beijing) on behalf of the participants. The accommodation at the Prime Hotel (Beijing) is only available via the organizers for getting price discount. The rate is about 700 CNY (about 110 USD) with breakfast.
Prime Hotel (Beijing), locates at No.2 Wangfujing Avenue (Wangfujing Dajie), Dongcheng District, Beijing, China, is a famous business five-star hotel. Prime Hotel (Beijing) is close to Wangfujing Avenue, Tiananmen Square, and Forbidden City. It is 45 minutes driving distance from Beijing Capital International Airport.
If you prefer to arrange own accommodation, the information on the accommodation around Prime Hotel (Beijing) can be found in the following websites: http://www.tripadvisor.com/, http://www.booking.com/, http://english.ctrip.com, and http://www.hotels.com/. The website http://www.booking.com/ will provide a lower price because of the cooperation between booking.com and the Prime Hotel.
- The easiest way is to take a taxi directly from the airport to the Prime Hotel (华侨大厦). It costs about 100 CNY (about 16 USD) and 50 minutes.
- You can take the No.3 shuttle bus to ChaoYangMen (朝阳门), and then take a taxi to hotel (5 minutes). The shuttle bus runs every 30 minutes from 7:00 to 24:00. The total cost is about 36 CNY (about 6 USD) and 1 hours.
- You can take the airport express train to the city and then by subways. There are stops in both terminal T2 and T3, take the airport express to DongZhiMen (东直 门)station. Then transfer to subway Line 2 to ChaoYangMen (朝阳门) station, and then change to Line 6 to DongSi (东四) station. Take the Exit E and walk to west about 500 meters to the hotel (See the map directions on how to walk from Exit E to the hotel). Note that the subway runs from about 6:30 AM to 23:00 PM, and during the rush hour it could be very crowded. The total cost is about 30 CNY and 1 hour.
