ready by this time??
and also can you tell me a little more about the places where the teams could stay at yaroslavl and what are the rates?do you offer some kind of accommodation?

A: Yes, if you want to participate in the workshop (not just in competition), please send us an email with number of participants, names and where are you from to x-4@ya.ru to confirm, so we can plan the number of participants.

If you want to participate in the workshop — please, make a minimum project (your vision of the social house), so that it could be a topic for discussion at the workshop.

You can see hotel prices in Yaroslavl here: http://cih.ru/l/6k ($50-100 per day — 1 rouble = $0.032)
But we are negotiating with partners and we’ll try to offer special low prices. (As an option — camping on the construction site if the weather will be good).
