The CIRM is located in a nice place, close to some of the famous "Calanques de Marseille", beautiful typical creeks. There will be no talks on Wednesday afternoon to give the participants an opportunity to enjoy the surroundings. More details about how to get there can be found on the web site of the CIRM.

The conference includes breakfasts, lunches and diners free of charge from Sunday evening to Friday noon. Transportation is left at the charge of the participants.

There is only a limited number of single and double hotel rooms at the CIRM (from Sunday evening to Friday morning). Those rooms are free of charge. People who will register late may not obtain one of them, and will have to book an hotel room outside the CIRM on their own. We thus advise you to register early.
