The conference will be held in the Gif-sur-Yvette CNRS life sciences research campus, a 35 minutes train ride away from central Paris. Talks and poster sessions will take place in the Imagif building (building 21) and the conference dinner will take place in CNRS’ Château de Button.

The most convenient way to access the conference site is through the RER B commuter train, which runs every 15 minutes on average as described in this file. When boarding a RER from central Paris, make sure it is headed for Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuses and not Robinson, Massy-Palaiseau or Orsay-Ville. Get off at the Gif-sur-Yvette station and follow our walking directions. Driving directions can be found here.

To get on the RER B from a train station or airport, follow the directions from the RATP website. You may also download printable maps of the metro and RER networks. To shorten their journey, we advise travelers to arrive into and leave from the Massy TGV train station or Orly airport if the option is available.
