Holiday Inn, Thoiry-StGenis

Description

This year's TH retreat will take place at the Holiday Inn in Thoiry-StGenis. The scientific part of the meeting will include reviews of the activities of the theory group, and presentations by the new TH fellows. This will last until 18:00, after which we return to CERN, for a buffet-dinner in the Main Restaurant (in the glassbox area). Your family is invited to join us for dinner.
