The summer school will take place in the week before the conference. The arrival on the island will be on Monday 10 June 2019, in the afternoon/evening. Then, the school’s programme will start on Tuesday 11 June 2019 in the morning and will end on Saturday 15 June 2019 in the afternoon. A bus transfer from and to Nice will be arranged by the organizers. Please be warned that most people will need to be accommodated in a room shared with 1-3 other summer school participants.

Travel to the island

The bus from Nice will depart from the airport at 15:00 on Monday, 10 June 2019. We are hoping to arrive to Tour Fondue before 17:30 so that we can catch the second to last boat of the day to Porquerolles. Participants should arrive well in advance of this time.

If you are planning to arrive to the island by yourself, please note that the last boat departs of the day leaves at 18:30. For more information see maritimes bateau website.

There will be a dinner prepared for us in Porquerolles upon arrival to the venue.

Departure from the island

We are planning that the programme of the school will end just in time for the boat that leaves Porquerolles at 17:00 on Saturday. Then, there will be two buses arranged for those participants who are coming to Nice.

On the departure day the last provided meal at the venue will be the lunch at 12:30. However, it is expected that the participants will be able to buy some snacks at one of the rest stops on the way to Nice.
