Venue & Advice

The conference will take place at the campus of the Ecole Centrale de Lyon in the city of Ecully, approximately 7 km from the center of Lyon. The campus is accessible by bus lines C6 from the Part-Dieu and Vaise stations, 55 from the Perrache station, and 3 from the Gorge de Loup station.

The schedules of the bus lines and information about tickets can be found on the transportation website of the city of Lyon (TCL website). Tickets for long durations (such as 24, 48, and 72 hours) can be purchased directly at the automatic machines located at the subway stations.

Arriving by plane at Lyons Saint-Exupery Airport is a convenient way to reach Lyon. The airport is situated 25 km east of Lyon and receives daily flights from various European destinations and is conveniently connected to a train station. To access Lyon's city center from the airport, you can take the Rhônexpress, a tram line that reaches the Part-Dieu train station (Lyon center) in just 30 minutes.

For those arriving by train from different French and international cities, trains arrive at either Lyon Part-Dieu or Lyon Perrache train stations, both centrally located in the city.
