    BY PLANE:  Upon arrival at the Lyon Saint Exupéry Airport, you should purchase a (return) ticket, preferrably with an extra subway ticket ("le ticket métro") attached, for the SATOBUS airport shuttle (see here for timetables and additional information) at a well-marked service desk within the airport premises. The cost of the return trip, with the subway ticket (valid also for buses and trams) included, is less than 20 EUR. In no more than three quarters of an hour, the shuttle takes you directly to the city centre - le Gare de la Part-Dieu or le Gare Perrache. If you get off the shuttle at the former stop take the "ligne B" of the subway in the direction "Stade de Gerland" (the subway station can be accessed via an entrance just across the street, right next to the SNCF train station, le Gare de la Part-Dieu) and get off at the stop "Debourg" (the subway trip is no more than 15 minutes). Setting off from Perrache, take the bus line 32 in the direction "États-Unis/Viviani" and get off at the stop "Halle Tony Garnier". The conference site can now be reached easily by following the map that you find here.

    BY TRAIN or BY BUS:  If you arrive by train or bus at le Gare de la Part-Dieu in the city centre take the subway to the ENS following the directions given above. Tickets for the subway can be purchased from one of the vending machines at the station (a single ticket ["le ticket unité"] costs 1.5 EUR).


    The city of Lyon has a well-developed and reliable communication network. For further detailed information, including maps, consult the link here.


    This one is an interactive map of Europe. All you need to do in order to find a place of interest in Lyon or set up a convenient itinerary is type the address (e.g. "46, Allée d'Italie, 69364 Lyon") in the blank field and wait for the image to load.

    And here is another one, a little simpler.


    There shall be a small computer room with 6 PC's running Windows, and some wired connections for laptops. It shall also be possible to access the internet via WIFI in some areas of the ENS Lyon.
