RNC 7 — Real Numbers and Computers 2006
July 10–12, 2006

Travelling

The conference takes place at LORIA, Campus scientifique, Vandoeuvre-lès-Nancy, France.
Vandoeuvre-lès-Nancy is in the direct vicinity of Nancy.

Nancy is approximately 350km east of Paris.

Coming by plane

You may either choose to reach the local airport, or travel via Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

The local airport (Nancy-Metz, ETZ) is 30km away from Nancy, but few airlines go there. Shuttles provide transportation to and from the airport. The “ official ” shuttle service has a schedule available online. Private taxi companies also provide similar service (albeit more expensive).

If you choose to travel via Paris-Charles de Gaulle, you'll still have 350km to go once you have landed. You may either rent a car there, or take the train.

Coming by train

Coming by train via Paris follows similarly as above. From some countries (e.g. Germany, Luxemburg), Nancy is reachable directly.

Reaching the LORIA from the inner city

Access maps of the conference site can be found on the LORIA web site ; here follows a summary.

The easiest way to reach the LORIA from the train station is to take Tram 1 (this is the only tram line in Nancy).

Tram stop at the Station

In the map you can see the situation of the Train Station and the nearest stop of Tram 1. Tram tickets can be purchased at the vending machine just at the tram stop (only coins), or at the ticket booth which is down the stairs (close to the train tracks).
You have to take the tram in the direction Vandoeuvre, Chu Brabois, and get off at stop « Callot ». The ride takes approximately 20 minutes.

You may want to look up the Tram line map, and Tram timetable (one way, and the other).

The following map highlights LORIA amongst the nearby buildings (Université Henri Poincaré). The walk from the tram stop to the building is approximately 5 minutes.
