Practical Information

There are two different locations for the conference:

How to get to Nanterre?

By public transportation, there are two different ways to reach Nanterre. Either by train from Gare Saint Lazare, or by RER. In both cases, stop at "Université Paris Nanterreniversité". From the Quartier Latin and the 5th arrondissement in general, the easiest way is the RER:
-- start from the RER station "Luxembourg", take any train north to "Aéroport Charles de Gaulle" or "Mitry Claye". (this is line B, there is only one line at Luxembourg)
-- go down at "Les Halles" (this is the second stop)
-- change for a RER train, line A, heading toward "Saint Germain en Laye"
-- stop at "Université Paris Nanterreniversité"

Going from Luxembourg to Université Paris Nanterreniversity takes less than one hour. At "Les Halles", the train you want to take is on the same platform as the train you are leaving. But *warning* not all line A trains go to Nanterre. Check that the final destination is "Saint Germain Laye" or that "Université Paris Nanterreniversité" is light up on the information boards. RER tickets to Nanterre can be bought at Luxembourg.

Where does the conference take place at Nanterre?

Here is a map of the campus. Room L318 is located in building L (the philosophy building) on the 3rd floor. It is a short 4 minutes walk from the RER station.

Going from Luxembourg to Room L318 should take less than one hour. Note that RER trains can be quite crowded early in the morning. A more peaceful option is the train from Gare Saint Lazare. A taxi from the city center to Nanterre would be quite costly (maybe 60 euros).

How to get to ENS?

ENS is at walking distance from the hotels for those of you who are staying in the Quartier Latin. Here is a map.

Where does the conference take place at ENS?

Salle Cavaillès and Salle des Résistants are both located in the main building, in the right wing, on the first floor.
