The conference will be held in Paris, in the "Cité Internationale Universitaire". It is located in the south side of Paris, in front of the "Cité Universitaire" RER station, well connected by public transportation to the heart of Paris and to the airports.

The Cité Internationale Universitaire
Facing the Parc Montsouris, the "Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris" is a not well-known site, but is nonetheless one of a kind. It was built around 1920, in the peacetime context between World Wars I and II. In this utopian place without frontiers, students, teachers and researchers from all around the world can meet and share their differences.

A living place based on cultural mixture, this "garden city" is located in a 35-hectares park and hosts 5 000 students and researchers from 126 nations. Residents live in 37 houses, with various styles, constituting an authentic museum of 20th-century architecture.
