Venue and travel

The Annual General Meeting 2016 of the TMS will take place at the University of Lille.

The meeting venue is located on the Campus of the University Lille1 Sciences and Technologies, at Villeneuve d’Ascq, in the building «Espace Culture».

The campus can easily be reached by metro (about 15 minutes from the city centre of Lille): yellow metro line 1 towards «Quatre Cantons»

The « Espace Culture », located in the heart of the campus next to the new Learning Center Innovation, is in short walking distance (less than 5 minutes) from the metro station «Cité Scientifique».

A map of the campus is available here: http://www.univ-lille1.fr/digitalAssets/48/48448_UL1_PlanCampus_A4_06.2016.pdf

Lille can easily reached by Eurostar (London), Thalys (Brussels) or TGV (Paris). Trains arrive either at Lille Europe (new railway station) or at Lille Flandres (historical railway station). Both stations are in the city centre of Lille and have direct access to the metro.

From the United Kingdom, you can reach Lille-Europe in 1 hr 20 mins from St Pancras Int’l or in 56 mins from Ashford Int’l.

Eurostar proposes city break deals that can be interesting in combining the Eurostar train with hotels at Lille:

Accommodation

Accommodation is difficult on or near the campus.

Among a large range of hotels, we advice you to choose a place near a metro station in the city centre.

You can find hotels at low prices below 50 Euros (Mister Bed, Première Classe, Kyriad, etc.) up to outstanding places like the 5 star Hermitage Gantois, that you may book through a Eurostar deal.
