Local information

Practical information booklet: [PDF]
(You will receive a paper copy at the registration.)

The conference venue is in the Parc Valrose [map] with plenary sessions in the Grand Château de Valrose, and parallel sessions in nearby lecture rooms (amphitheaters of informatics, chemistry, and physics). There will be a Welcome Lunch on Monday at the Grand Château. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday lunches are offered at CROUS (CROUS is outside of campus, next to the North East of Bibliothèque) at 12:15. Lunch will not be provided on Thursday, but a list of nearby restaurants is enclosed below.

Notice that the central part of campus (entrance and lake) is on level but the Grand Château de Valrose and the venues of the contributed sessions are on opposite hills. These are accessible either by paths with stairs or by road (that are longer but easier to navigate). Anyone who needs help reaching the venues should contact the organizers.

Arrival from the airport

There are a number of options to get from the airport to the city. To go directly to the university

  • by bus 23 to stop Vallot, departing from Aéroport / Promenade which is approx 150 meters from Terminal 1 [map] (cost: 1.5 €)

Or you can go to the city centre

  • by express bus 99 to stop Gare SNCF or express bus 98 to Promenade des Arts, they leave from the Terminal 1 bus station [map] (cost: 6 €),
  • by buses 23, 52, 59, 70 to various places in the centre, they leave from “Aéroport / Promenade” located approx 150 meters from Terminal 1 [map] (cost 1.50 €)
  • by train from Gare de Nice Saint-Augustin to Nice Ville. The station is located approximately 1.2 kilometres from Terminal 1 [map] (cost: 1.90 €). To find the available train connections go to sncf.com.

Bus tickets can be purchased from the bus driver whereas train tickets needs to be bought beforehand from a ticket machine at the station.

The most convenient way to go to the university from almost anywhere in the city is to use the tram line number 1. From the tram stop Valrose université it is only about 300 meters to the entrance. You can find the map of all public transport in Nice here. The tramline is in red.

There are many hotels and rooms for rent in Nice. However, the best/cheapest will soon be taken as Nice is very popular in June. This is even worse this year with some 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup matches taking place in Nice. We recommend a choice of accommodation near the Parc Valrose or near the TRAM LINE 1.

We’ve made a list of nearby hotels often used by the local academic community, see the list here. However, the list is far from being complete, feel free to explore the available options by yourself.

Student-style accommodation

For the conference, a limited amount of modestly priced student-style accommodation has been pre-booked in Résidence universitaire Montebello, which is on campus, moments from the conference venues.

We have pre-booked single rooms. They are around 9 square metres, with a small bathroom containing a toilet, shower, and wash basin. Basic necessities are provided. The cost for a single room for 7 nights will be 162 euros. There may be a possibility of booking double rooms. Please let us know in the form if you are interested in this.
