Welcome to Paris

The conference will take place at Ecole Normale Supérieure, which is located rue d’Ulm, 29, in the heart of Paris. It is easily accessible from both airports (Orly and Charles de Gaulle) and from all Paris train stations.


The closest (8 minutes walk) station is “Luxembourg” on the RER-B line.  RER-B is something between subway and train.  RER-B offers an easy connection to the airports and train stations.
