The conference will be held at the Lyon Convention Center (Centre des Congrès de Lyon). Lyon Convention Center is located up North in Lyon, next to the Parc de la Tête d'Or ("Park of the Golden Head"), one of the largest urban parks in France.
Lyon is easily accessible by train and plane. Note that coming by train from Paris airport (and a few other cities in Europe) can be significantly faster than taking a plane to Lyon from there. This is also more environmentally friendly.
Lyon is well-connected with metros, tramways, and buses. Cycling is also easy in Lyon, with Velo'v city bikes (1-day ticket for 4€). Citymapper can be useful to plan your daily trips in Lyon as combining different modes is often the fastest solution. For detailed information, please refer to the following links:
