Cargèse Summer School,
June 11 to June 23, 2018
The Institute will be held at the Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques
de Cargèse (Corsica). The lectures and seminars will take place from Tuesday June 12, 9am
till Friday June 22, 6pm. Participants must arrive on
Monday June 11 and stay for the whole duration of the Institute. Departure
will take place on June 23.
The most convenient way to get to Cargese is by airplane to Ajaccio
airport, via Paris, Marseille or Nice. There is a convenient Air France
flight from Paris (Orly airport) leaving on June 11 at 17:45 and
arriving in Ajaccio at 19:20.
A coach will pick up the participants on Monday 11 evening and bring
them to Cargèse, where they will be directed to their housing. The same
coach will be available for those arriving earlier, for instance by
boat (the airport is not very far form the harbour). We strongly
encourage particpants to chose this solution.
For those who cannot make it for this schedule, please, let us
know and a solution will be proposed for your local transporation from
Ajaccio to Cargese. The departure from Cargese to Ajaccio will be organised on Saturday June 23 morning
in time to reach the early afternoon flights in Ajaccio airport.
