Practical Informations (new !!)



The workshop venue is in the Pharo Park (58, Boulevard Charles Livon, see picture below) in the main building of Aix-Marseille Université (the last one on your left when walking towards the back of the Park, where the Pharo Palace is). The path to follow will be indicated by signs. You can find a picture of the building in the abstract book.

Talks will be given in the Amphitheatre Gastaud (straight ahead when entering the building), breaks and poster sessions in the Salle des Voutes (one floor below, follow the signs).



The are many options for hotels close to the workshop venue.

We recommand choosing an hotel close to the old port, which is a more lively place. You may consider the following three hotels, located on the map above:

Hotel Carré Vieux Port , 6 rue Beauvau (€€€)

Hotel Hermès Marseille, 2 rue Bonneterie (€€)

Ibis budget, 46 rue Sainte (€)

Transportation (from the Airport/Railway station)

To reach the city center from the Marseille Provence airport you can take a bus shuttle (8.30€ one way), which will bring you to the Saint Charles railway station. From there the vieux port is a 20 min walk (going down the St Charles stairs, following the Boulevard d'Athènes then the Canebière), or you can take the line 1 of the subway (exit Vieux-Port).

There is also a direct bus between the St Charles station to the Pharo, the 82s. It runs every half an hour (xx:12 and xx:42).

Transportation (between the old port and the Pharo)

There are several bus lines which connect the Pharo to the old port, namely the Bus 82/82s, 83 and 81 (one way from the Pharo to the old port). Route maps and timetables are available on the rtm website.

Also note that the ferry boat crosses the old port (in principle) every 10 min from 7:30 to 20:30 (for those of you who choose an Hotel on the side of city hall (e.g. the Hermes).

Visiting Marseille

Those of you who plan to spend some leisury time before or after the workshop will find very useful information on the website of the "office de tourisme", the later being located very close to the Vieux Port.

Beside the Vieux Port, highlights include the mucem and its surroundings, Notre Dame de la Garde and the 360° panorama there, the Panier district with the "Vieille Charité".

And last but not least, the Calanque National Park is accessible by public transportation and is a hiker and rock climber paradise !

(if you plan to go there take hiking shoes and ample supplies of water and sun cream with you)

Note that the Catalan beach is a 9' walk from the workshop venue.
