Please bring your laptop: in case, you can work together with the other participants,
or access a computer in the room MSA 2.200.
Before the conference, please check out the programs PARI/GP and
(if applicable, please set up an account to access the online version of the program, and install the program).
The activities take place in the MSA (Maison du Savoir) which is a building on the north side of the campus
(number 1 on the map).
You recognize the MSA because it is covered by metal squares and it consists of two parts connected by a bridge
(note, the auditoriums are in the lower part of the building).
- The main lecture room is MSA 3.110, on the third floor.
- We also have reserved another lecture room, MSA 3.040.
- For the exercise sessions we have the rooms MSA 2.240, 2.230 and 2.200.
Notice that the room MSA 2.200 is equipped with computers.
- Coffee breaks take place next to the main lecture room MSA 3.110.
- On the first floor of the MSA, in the main hall, there are several tables (and there is eduroam access).
