Arriving by train or plane
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. We will contact invited speakers to book their means of transportation.
Public transportation to the campus
The most convenient way to access the conference site is through the RER B commuter train, which runs every 15 minutes on average. 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. When boarding a RER from central Paris, make sure it is headed for Saint-Rémy-lès-Chevreuses, Orsay-Ville or Massy-Palaiseau and not Robinson. From there you have two options:
Option 1. If you are up for a bucolic – if steep – 15-min walk to École Polytechnique, stop at Lozère. Roughly every second train stops in there (stops are displayed on the platform of your station of departure). The path up the hill and to the campus is outlined in this map.
Option 2. If you’d rather take the bus up the hill, stop at Massy-Palaiseau and use this map to find the bus stop (the one you want is at the bottom left). From there take bus 91.06 B, 91.06 C or 91.10 (do not board 91.06 A or 91.06 D). You may view the timetable here. Get off at « Ecole Polytechnique Lozère ».
Driving to the campus
Directions are available here.
Once on campus
We will put up signs to direct you from the Lozère station/bus stop to the conference venue. You may also follow this map to the entrance of the building, and this one from the entrance to the amphitheater and canteen.
