Due to an ecologic incident in the Bretagne (sinking of Erika) the region around Antibes is running out of hotel rooms. We may be pressured to release unwanted room at the end of May, so please reserve your hotel room as early as possible!

Other Accommodation

You may also look by yourself for a hotel room. The websites http://www.antibes.com/ and http://www.aaacom.com/hotelreservation/ contain some information about accommodation in the region and may be of help in this case.

Note: You need not necessarily be in Antibes / Juan les Pins for the conference since there is a railway station nearby the Palais des congres (Called Gare de Juan les Pins) where the conference is held, so you can stay for example in Nice but take in consideration 1/2 hour of travel from Nice to Juan les Pins.

3. Transportation

Traveling to Antibes / Juan les Pins

By Air: The Nice International Airport (see also http://www.nice.aeroport.fr/), 22 km to the east, is available by bus, train and car (taxi).

By Train: Antibes is on the main Paris-Lyon-Avignon-Nice-Italy line, with local trains serving most of the coastal towns. Prices vary by day and season, but a typical Antibes-Nice round-trip cost around 42 F. [Rail Map]. Practical information on traveling by train in France may be found at the website of the French Railways SCNF.

Car Rental

All major companies are available in the Airport. Remember that booking a car from abroad is cheaper than taking it in France, as rates are higher once you arrive. It will be difficult to park your car in Juan les Pins at this time of the year unless you park it early in the morning (before 10 AM).

4. Social Event

The proposed visit to the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco with a short visit to the Palace has been canceled due to a lack of sufficient subscribers.
