Getting to Bordeaux
Bordeaux is located near the European Atlantic coast, in the southwest of France. You can come to Bordeaux by train, by plane or by car. The main train station is “Bordeaux Saint-Jean”. The Bordeaux airport is located in Mérignac (12km from Bordeaux downtown). The airport provides connection to many French and European cities.
Getting to the conference place
The conference will take place on the Bordeaux 1 university campus. The reception desk will be in LaBRI building (see the campus map).
Address: LaBRI, University of Bordeaux 1, 351 cours de la Libération, 33400 Talence
From the train station
From the Saint-Jean train station, the easiest but not the fastest way to get to the university is to take the tramway (green C line) to “Les Aubiers” and stop at “Quinconces”. Then change and take (red B line) to “Pessac”. The nearest stops from the LaBRI are “Peixotto” and “Béthanie”. If you are in a hurry, from the Saint-Jean station, take the bus “Liane 10” and stop at “Peixotto”.
From the airport
Take the shuttle Jet’Bus to Bordeaux . Get off at the stop “Office de Tourisme” from which you should see the tramway. Take the tram B to “Pessac” and stop at “Peixotto” or at “Béthanie” (see the campus map).
From the beltway (rocade), use exit 16 “Talence-Domaine Universitaire.” Follow the direction of “Bordeaux centre” down the “Cours de la Libération” to the big green gate which is the University main entrance.
If you have a GPS device, you can add the following google-earth GPS data:

The SSID eduroam (WiFi) is broadcasted by the LaBRI.
What is eduroam?

eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply
opening their laptop.
