The Mid Year School on Analysis, Geometry, and Applications, abbreviated MYSAGA, is a recent initiative from Analysis and Geometry Group, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB). The school is held for master and doctoral students in mathematics, but newly graduated mathematics doctors are also welcome. The lectures will be delivered by three experts in the field, two of which are coming from overseas.

Bandung is around 150 KM away from Jakarta, the Capital of Indonesia. There are shuttle buses and mini-buses that can take you directly from the Jakarta International Airport (a.k.a. Soekarno-Hatta International Airport) to Bandung (through highway) at the cost of IDR 135,000 – 180,000. Note: USD 1 = IDR 14,000 (more or less). Just ask the information desk at the Airport about the bus ticket counters that sell tickets for those buses. You then buy the ticket directly at the bus ticket counter that you choose. We suggest that you take the Red-White Star Shuttle MiniBus to Bandung (see the schedule). Another option is you take the Cititrans Shuttle MiniBus to Bandung, but this minibus has many destinations in Bandung: choose the one to Dipati Ukur. See the map of Bandung near ITB.
If you prefer, you can also fly to Bandung through Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, but you might have to change planes and wait several hours in transit.
As for the visa policy of Indonesia, read here. If you come from a country that requires a visa to visit Indonesia, the visa can be paid on arrival.
