To reach Strasbourg (city center):
The main train station is situated at Strasbourg itself. International buses will also arrive close to the train station or at Place de l'Etoile. From both locations you can easily reach all Strasbourg by bus, tram or walking.
To reach the conference venue:
The easiest way to reach the Collège Doctoral Européen is to take the tram C, E or F to the station "Observatoire". Tickets must be bought at the machines close to the tram plateform and validated before entering the tram. Trams are efficient but may be crowded with students. At this time of the year controls are frequent, so don't forget to buy and validate your tickets. A tram/bus ticket costs 1.70 euros and is valid for a one-way journey with transfer.
There is a big bus stop very close to the conference venue named "Observatoire". You can use the bus number 2 or 15 to reach your destination. The bus ticket is the same as the tram ticket, you can buy it inside the bus (ask the driver) but it is less expensive to buy tickets at the machines at tram stations. You have to validate your bus/tram ticket inside and every time you transfer. A bus/tram ticket costs 1.70 euros (2.00 euros inside the bus) and is valid for a one-way journey with transfer.
There are large boulevards that lead to the conference venue, with pedestrian walks in the center and almost no cars. It is a pleasant walk from the city center. About 15-25 minutes from most of the hotels listed on this website.
A charming and small hotel to spend a couple of nights in Strasbourg. The location is between the city center and the conference venue. Very kind and helpful owners who usual share breakfast with you.
Really lovely hotel. Friendly staff. The location is great, close to a tram stop and an easy walk, about 10 minutes, to the city centre / conference place. The rooms are a bit small, but fine for anyone who is travelling and visiting for a few days.
Well-located small hotel close to the train station and city center. It's a basic hotel, but has everything needed. Tram stations are nearby to reach the conference venue. Rooms are clean but their size may vary from room to room.
Nominal deadline for abstract submission: August 1st 2017
Extended deadline for abstract submission: August 31st 2017
Registration are closed
Registration to the workshop is limited to 36 speakers plus a dozen of additional participants. Priority will be given to PhDs and post-docs who will submit an oral presentation, but experienced researchers are invited to submit contributions as well. People may bring posters; they will be displayed in the lobby where also the coffee breaks take place. Please let us know if you bring posters so that we can order the right number of billboards.
Since the conference puts an emphasis on the participation of young researchers in the field of X-ray polarimetry, conference fees were reduced to a minimum of 50 euros. They cover a conference kit, coffee breaks and a ticket to the conference dinner. Payment will be possible securely online, after selecting speakers for the conference.
About the conference dinner. Please let us know if you have any allergies, diet restrictions or special requests. You can attend the conference dinner accompanied by another person (35 euros per additional ticket). Drinks will be included in the dinner.
If you have any additional questions, do not hesitate to contact the organizer of the workshop.
