AiML 2008 will be hosted by LORIA, the Laboratoire Lorrain de Recherche en Informatique et ses Applications (Lorraine Laboratory of IT Research and its Applications).
LORIA is a Laboratory of more than 450 individuals including more than 150 researchers and teaching-researchers, a third of doctorate students and post-doctorate, and engineers, technicians and administrative staffs
Most problably, people attending AiML 2008 will be arriving by train to Nancy. Nancy only has a regional airport, so also people arriving to the nearest international airpors (Paris, Luxembourgue, Frankfurt, etc.) will probably complete their journey by train.
The easiest way to reach LORIA from the train station, is to take Tram 1 (this is the only tram line in Nancy).
In the map you can see the situation of the Train Station and the nearest stop of Tram 1. You have to take the tram in the direction Vandoeuvre, Chu Brabois. And step down in the Callot stop (it is a 20 minutes ride).
There are automatic ticket machines in the stop of the tram. You cannot buy the ticket on the tram, so remember to buy the ticket before boarding the tram.
In the map you can see highlighted the building of LORIA.
We have also marked in red the path from the nearest tram station (stop Callot, of Tram 1). It takes about 5 minutes walking from the tram station to the AiML 2008 site.
