  • I think starting at lunchtime the first day, and finishing on lunchtime the second day would be a good plan. This allows those flying in from outside Beijing area (USTC team) to arrive in the morning day 1 and leave in the afternoon of day 2, just 1 night hotel accommodation needed. The afternoon of day 2 could be spent with the Tianjin iGEM team only (as they are hosting).
  • (Mon 16th April)
  • arrive Beijing early that morning, driven to Tianjin (~1.5 hrs)
  • Day 1: With all iGEM China teams (4 teams, ~60 people)
