November 2: Workshops and tutorials in Rennes at Irisa Laboratory

November 3 to 5: Main conference in Saint-Malo at the Palais du Grand Large

Please contact Myriam David with any questions.

Brittany is a large peninsula, bordered to the north by the English Channel and to the west and the south by the Atlantic Ocean. Hundreds of bays, inlets, and islands shelter the fishing boats that have sustained Bretons for millennia.

Rennes is the capital of Brittany and, together with Lannion and Saint-Malo, is part of what is known as the French "Telecom-Valley," since most of the major players of the country's telecommunications industry have a site in this region (e.g., Alcatel, France-Télécom, Thomson, Matra).

Saint-Malo is a corsair (a corsair is a kind of official "pirate," hired by the king) city located on the north coast of Brittany, close to the Mont Saint-Michel and to Rennes. Saint-Malo is often compared to a great vessel preparing to set out to sea, always searching renewal and adventures. Every street corner, every shore recalls the city's legendary past, along the innumerable walks and seafront promenades. More than two and a half million visitors come here every year from all over the world to appreciate this exceptional site and its special atmosphere. A great variety of nautical activities are to be found here. And so as not to do things by halves, Saint-Malo is well-known as an international sailing capital: the biggest transoceanic races in the world start from the corsair city.

Close to Saint-Malo, the Mont Saint-Michel is one of Brittany's best-known attractions. Surrounded by the most powerful tides in Europe, perched high on a rocky island, this medieval city and its abbey are a UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Site.

Lodging

Saint-Malo

The Palais du Grand Large will have hotel rooms in Saint-Malo from different categories (one to four stars hotels), with attractive prices ranging from 40 to 130 euros (for a twin bedroom) and located close to the conference site (less than 10 min walk). More information about this will be available online in September.

The complete list of all accommodation possibilities is also available on request at the Tourist Office of Saint-Malo.
