It will be held in Paris, the 12th of November 2019, on the Pierre and Marie Curie Campus of Sorbonne Université.

Abstract submissions, to be presented as posters, are welcomed!

Registration is free but mandatory.

Location

The conference will be held in the Jussieu campus of Sorbonne Université (4 place jussieu, JUSSIEU metro station).

The talks will be given in room 106 (1st floor), in the 44-45 building (accesss from the 44 entrance, see purple star on the map), the posters presentations and coffee/lunch breaks will be in the neighboring room 102.
