Travel & accommodation
Paris is easily accessible from anywhere around the world and is served by two international airports (Orly and Charles de Gaulle). Several options are available to reach Paris city center from the airports. Learn more
It is worth noting that some low-cost flights (for example Ryanair) arrive in Beauvais Airport which is 85 km from Paris (approximately a 75-minute bus journey).
High-Speed trains (Eurostar, Thalys, Lyria and TGV) connect Paris to other major continental cities and an efficient road system makes travel to Paris, by car or coach, a viable option from other European countries.
The Paris Metro has a well-developed rail network which means the conference center is around 15 to 30 min from downtown Paris.
Conference attendees are advised to book hotels in areas in close proximity to the Paris Metro Line 12. This includes “Montmartre”, “Pigalle”, “Grands Boulevards” and “Grands magasins”, “Opera”, « Tuileries », all of which are within 15 to 30 minutes Metro journey to the MSH conference center.
Accommodation should be booked directly with the hotels. Unfortunately, the organization committee will not be able to assist you with accommodation arrangements.
