Symposium premises and Local transportation
The symposium will be held at the "Les Cordeliers" Conference Centre,15 rue de l'Ecole de Médecine, 75006 Paris.
Important information concerning access to the conference center:
The road outside Les Cordeliers, called rue de l'Ecole de Medecine, is currently not accessible to vehicules due to roadworks. The closest road traffic drop off-point is at Place Henri Mondor, at the exits of the Odeon metro station. Access along the rue de l'Ecole de Medecine is easy by foot. The most convenient entrance to Les Cordeliers is through the huge green door at n° 21, rue de l'Ecole de Medecine, 75006 Paris.
Please see the attached map for details.
Registration (starting on 9 April, 3pm - 6 pm), all scientific activities, lunches and refreshment breaks (10-12 April) will take place at this location. COST Action MC Members are advised that the MC Meeting will also take place at this location, on 9 April, 4 pm - 6 pm.
The conference center is within short walking distance Odeon Metro stop (lines 4 and 10). It is also easy enough to walk from the RER suburban rail network stops Saint-Michel-Notre-Dame (line C) or Luxembourg (line B). Several Paris bus routes run close to the venue.

Local transport in Paris can be done using a single ticket for each journey. The same ticket allows you to use several metro and RER connections for your journey, but each bus trip requires a separate ticket. If you are going to travel regularly, it will be advantageous to buy a "carnet" which is a pack of 10 tickets, or perhaps a 1, 2, 3 or 5- day pass (giving you an unlimited number of journeys during the validity). Please note that transport to or from the suburbs of Paris, including airports, has a different pricing scale, requiring a different category of ticket.
