The CITI lab of the Telecom departement of INSA-Lyon University will be accommodating us in their brand new conference hall.
The closest airport is Lyon-Saint Exupéry airport (LYS), which serves most countries in the western part of Europe.
The Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG) serves more destinations. One can then take the high-speed train to Lyon .
Lyon is a well-connected city deserved by several high-speed trains from Paris, Marseille, Genève, Toulouse and most major french cities.
Paris -> Lyon is two hours.
Exit 1B, follow "Croix Luizet", then "La Doua", and "Domaine Scientifique de la Doua".
Exit 6 "Porte de Croix Luizet", then follow direction "Campus de la Doua".
A good cheap solution (if your flight brings you only to Paris for example) is carpooling.
You can find interesting carpooling solutions at covoiturage.fr (french only).
There is plenty of free on-site parking available in front of the venue.
Take the Rhônexpress airport shuttle to downtown Lyon ("Centre de Lyon" / "Lyon Part-Dieu" train station) which runs every 20 min.
Go through the train station to take the bus in front of the mall.
We were made aware at the last minute of maintenance work on the tramway track, thus the T1 tramway is substituted by buses.

To come to the venue the stops stay the same, take off at Part-Dieu Vivier-Merle (in front of the mall) and stop at La Doua-Gaston Berger.
Though unlikely, some high-speed trains only deserve the Perrache train station, which it farther, closer to the city center.
To go to the venue, take the A metro line towards Vaulx-en-Velin La Soie, stop at Charpennes, and take the T1 tramway substitution bus (see from Part-Dieu).
Go to the closest tramway station, south of the subtitution bus stop.
Heading east, cross the road, go past the Blaise Pascal building, staying on the same side of the tramway tracks.
Turn left onto Rue de la Physique, walking between the Blaise Pascal building on the left and the Louis Pasteur building.
Continue on Rue de la Physique until the end of the road (300 meters / 1000 feet).
The entrance is on the corner of the building to the right, there is a "Claude Chappe" sign on the building.
