Practical informations

How ?

The school will tale place at the FIAP in Paris, very close to Paris Observatory.

The registration fee includes accomodation at FIAP for 5 days half-board (5 nights + breakfast and 5 lunches), from Sunday evening (February 25th) to Friday noon (March 2nd). Since it is mandatory for the students to be present on monday morning at 9:00, it is highly recommended to arrive in Paris on Sunday. A few members of the LOC will wait for you at the FIAP from 16:00 to 19:00 to answer questions and help you accommodate.

Participants who wish to keep their room on Friday evening (at your own charge) are invited to contact us as soon as possible, since reservations must be done early.

A cocktail in the salle Cassini of the historical building is scheduled on Thursday evening, the 1st of March.

Bringing a laptop is mandatory. Informations will be given at a later time on how softwares needed during the school can be downloaded (see the page on "Hands On"). Meanwhile, you may want to install VirtualBox on your laptop.
