The 7th Conference will take place in the Polytech Lille.
starting Monday (May 23rd) for 2 ½ days (ends Wednesday 25th of May)

The easiest way is to land at Roissy Charles De Gaulle airport, north of Paris, you can get a frequent TGV (High Speed Train) at the airport station which will take you directly to the centre of Lille (50 minutes non-stop or 1.20 hours with stops). Please check on www.sncf.fr for times etc. If you fly with Air France you can ask for a TGV Air ticket with the flight that is cheaper. Roissy works with low-cost companies also such as easyJet. 

  •     From Brussels Zaventem airport, you can get a regional express train which will take you to Brussels-Midi train station (or take a taxi). From there, a "Eurostar" train or a TGV will take you directly to Lille in 33 min. Again, check on www.sncf.com.
  •     From Lille Lesquin airport, there are a few international flights and a shuttle service that will take you to the Lille-Flandres station in 20 minutes. This service runs hourly from 07h30 to 20h00, or you can take a taxi.  

 Europeans can also reach Lille by train via Antwerp, Brussels, London or Paris.
