Venue and Maps

The conference is held at the World Trade Center, close to the train station. Trains from Paris airport (Charles de Gaulle, typically 3 hours) or Lyon airport (Saint Exupéry-Satolas, typically 1 hour) arrive in Grenoble.
There are shuttle buses from Lyon airport (Satobus, with a new time table, tickets can be purchased by Internet : ) and also from Grenoble airport (Saint Geoirs, with latest time table) which terminate at the Grenoble train station.
The WTC Conference Center is visible from the train station : if you arrive with a bus (or from the town center), the conference site is on the other side of the train station. There is a tunnel under the station that brings you right next to the WTC Conference Center (Place Robert Schuman). There are hotels next to the conference site, see our list.
