Cargèse Summer School, June 11 to June 23, 2018

Practical Information

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.

Caution: International flights usually arrive to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (north of Paris). It is possible to reach Orly airport from CDG in about 1h 30 by taking the RER B line south to Antony, and using the Orlyval shuttle from Antony RER station to Orly. Alternatively, there are buses going directly from CDG to Orly, but commute time varies upon traffic.
