The conference will take place in the building ISTIL-EPU of University Lyon 1. The
campus of the University Lyon 1 (Domaine de la doua) is located at
Villeurbanne. The exact address is 15 boulevard André Latarjet (in Villeurbanne)
which is parallel to 43 boulevard du 11 novembre 1918.
The best option is to use TCL network and reach the Charpennes station. Then you can walk from Charpennes to the conference building ISTIL-EPU. You can also take the Tramway T1 in Charpennes station, direction IUT Feyssine and stop at Condorcet. Note that tramway will be probably replaced by a bus because of construction from Charpennes station to Condorcet station.
