All the participants will stay at the Centre Paul Langevin in Aussois, where the scientific sessions will take place. It is extremely important that you provide us with your correct and final trip dates by December 15th. We may be allowed for exceptional changes until December 31st. Later on, there is a high risk that the center will charge your some compensation.
Travel information and tips:
The center is 9km away from the Modane train station (direct fast trains from Paris, Turin and Milan). There are some buses (more information soon). For taxi, it will be necessary to book in advance.
Aussois is a ski resort and the workshop takes place in winter. You should then expect winter conditions and the corresponding traffic issues. It therefore makes sense to try to avoid the late trains and to consider arriving in the late morning or early afternoon, to arrive with daylight. The sunset is at 5pm!
The cost for full board accommodation for 6 nights is 590€ (including all meals and coffee breaks). If you stay one night more or less, add or deduct 95€. The default way is to directly pay at the center (cash or card). Other options should be analysed case by case (and you should inform us as early as possible).
Special requests (meals and housing):
You were asked to specify any dietary requirements when you registered. You can modify such information by updating your registration until December 31st.
The same applies for the accommodation of companions (double rooms) and kids. If you have doubts, email J.P. Lansberg. The additional cost per night for full board accommodation is approximatively 85€ (it should be paid at the center).
Ski et al.:
Once the scientific program is settled, we will take care of the social activities and, in particular, ski. If there is a sufficient number of ski/snowboard beginners, we can book group lessons (to be paid by you, of course). For that we need to know if you are interested. We will probably add some options in the registration form and let you know. Note that there is a very affordable ski rental within the center.
