Hotels

There is no official conference hotel and unfortunately there is no special conference rate either. We recommend using online booking services for best hotel room rates.

Hotels near the main train station (Gare) are within a convenient 10-15 min bus ride (bus no. 3) from the campus and the buses operate every 10 minutes during day time (1.5 euros).
