Practical information on the conference

The conference will be held on the campus of the Université Claude Bernard. It is well deserved in terms of public transport, near the beautiful Rhône river and the Parc de la Tête d'Or.
Restaurant coverage around the University campus is, however, somewhat lacking. Therefore all lunch meals are included in the conference fees, and will be served on the campus in a private university-restaurant with a typical french gastronomy.

How to get from the train station/airport to ISTIL

By train: you will arrive at the train station Perrache. The simplest is to take a tram (T1, direction IUT Feyssine) until "CONDORCET" (the closest station to ISTIL, the place of the conference).
By plain: From the airport you take a taxi (~ 80 Euros) or go to the city with a SatoBus. You go out at Part Dieu and take tram T1 (direction IUT Feyssine).
