1st ACDA Workshop in Aussois

Aussois, French Alps, September 5--9, 2022.


The workshop will take place from Monday, the 5th September 2022 to Friday, the 9th September 2022 (until noon), in CAES-CNRS Centre Paul Langevin, in Aussois in the French Alps. Arrivals are on Sunday and departures on Friday. The workshop is by invitation only and is a community building effort by SIAM ACDA.

We are particularly excited about organizing an in-person. During the seminar, the participants will exchange new ideas and results and discuss new developments.

How to reach?

By train+taxi: Modane's train station (a tiny one) is about 8km (~5miles) from Aussois. Taxis are available at the train station.
Local transport from Modane to Aussois: Modane train station is around 6 hours from CDG-Paris Airport; 4.5 hours from Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport (there are a few direct trains taking 2.5 hours); 3.5 hours from Geneva's Airport, Switzerland; 1.5 hour from the city center of Torino, Italy; 2 hours from Milano Centrale train station;
