How to get to the conference

The conference will held at the Carré des Sciences (the previous location of the Ecole Polytechnique), Amphithéatre Poincaré, at 25, rue de la Montagne Sainte Geneviève, 75005 Paris. Here is a map of the area.

The closest subway stations are Cardinal Lemoine on the line 10 (5 minutes walk to the conference). Also nearby are Jussieu and Place Monge stations (Line 7). The closest RER station is Luxembourg on the line B (10 minutes). Maps and information about public transportation can be found at

If you arrive at Paris Charles de Gaulle, Roissy airport, take RER line B to Luxembourg. If you arrive at Paris Orly airport, take the Orlyval train to Antony and from there the RER line B to Luxembourg. Another solution is to take the OrlyBus to the RER B station Denfert-Rochereau or the JetBus to the subway line 7 station Villejuif-Louis-Aragon. The Paris, Beauvais airport is very far, take a shuttle to porte Maillot (1h) and continue with the subway from there. Door to door shuttles exist but are very expensive in Paris.
More information about getting to and from the airport can be found at

Our suggestion: when you arrive at the airport buy a return ticket to Paris, and keep the second coupon for your trip back. For your trips in Paris, during your stay buy a "carnet" which consists of 10 coupons. It is much cheaper than buying the coupons individually. They can be used for subway or buses.

Wireless Internet connection

In the conference room there is a wireless Internet connection. The SMTP connections are filtered by our host however. You might want to use webmail in order to send emails. If you don't have a computer with you, there is an Internet café on the rue Soufflot on your left when you go from the Pantéon.
