Please bring comfortable clothes, particularly for the field trips when we will stay outdoors for hours. Comfortable trekking boots and rain gear are important, too. If the weight limit of your luggage allows it, bring your own binoculars and of course your camera.
The official currency in Bosnia and Herzegovina is Bosnian Convertible Mark (abbreviated as BAM or KM), and you should be prepared to have some marks since card payment is not accepted everywhere. Payment in EUR is not allowed in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We recommend exchanging the money in official banks rather than exchange offices as banks are required by law to have fixed exchange rates and only charge a small transaction fee. The exchange rate at the moment is about 1 Euro to 1.95 BAM.
IMPORTANT! The staff of the conference cannot exchange currencies. However there are some exchange offices in town and ATMs are available in many places around the conference venue, so we would not recommend you to have too much cash on you.
