  • Venue

The Workshop will take place in the conference room of the CNRS CEMES campus (main building). A map to get there is proposed here.

The metro station Saouzelong (line B) is very close to the CEMES campus. Tickets can be bought on vending machines in every metro station. The metro directly goes to the city center where there are many nice hotels.

There are connections by metro and tram between Toulouse international airport, SNCF Toulouse-Matabiau main railway station, and the city center on the one hand, and the Saouzelong station one the other hand.


  • Hotels

A non-exhaustive list of hotels in Toulouse city center :

x Hôtel des arts ;

x Hôtel Croix-Baragnon ;

x Hôtels Ours Blanc (3 hotels) ;

x Hôtel du Taur.


  • Food

Lunches will be taken in the CEMES restaurant, very close to the conference room. For diners, there are many nice restaurants in Toulouse city center, serving local as well as international food.
