Coming to the Workshop

Bus from Chambéry

The workshop will take place on the scientific campus at le Bourget du Lac. Coming is relatively easy if you come from the center of Chambéry: just take bus number 9 to "Bourget - Plage", and get of at the stop called "CROUS" (closer to the LAMA) or "Université le Bourget" (closer to the lecture rooms).

The train station is just next to "Élephants" (add one minute for Chambéry—campus and substract one minute for campus—Chambéry).

Here is a small map of the campus with highlights. My office is in building Le Chablais, office 22; and the workshop will probably take place in building 4-Cantons.

Train to Chambéry

The easiest way to come is probably by train: the train station is called "Chambéry Challes les Eaux". (Frequent trains to/from Lyon or Grenoble, some direct trains to/from Paris.)


Find your way to le Bourget du Lac. It is relatively straightforward...


There is a tiny airport in Chambéry, but it is probably easier to fly through Lyon or Geneva. (Grenoble or Torino are also possible.)

Local contacts

If you have any problem, you can contact me (Pierre Hyvernat) in my office (tel: +33 4 79 75 94 22). On campus, my office is in building le Chablais, office 22.

Since I'll probably be busy during the workshop, I'll put additional contacts at some points.

Other Hotels close to the Workshop

There is the possibility to ask for a "CROUS" student room. This is nice for students with a tight budget or people who don't care about high standards and want to stay on the campus.

For people who want to get a room in a more traditional hotel, we usually recommend the following:
