Practical Information


The scientific organizers offer you the choice to either find and book your own accomodation for your visit or to ask the PSI2-board to book you an hotel closeby the venue.
If you wish to book yourself an accomodation of your liking, like for example an airbnb within the center of Paris, we would like to ask you to keep the maximum reimbursable amount in mind, communicated to you by the scientific organizers.
If you wish to solicit the service of the PSI2-board to find, book and directly pay for your lodging closeby the venue, please indicate this on the registration form and you will be contacted soon hereafter.

The default hotel choice during the DarkMod program will be the appart-hotel Residhome à Bures, which offers very convenient spacious studios for our guests, including a private and fully equipped kitchen. In the evening the hotel offers catering service. This accomodation is a 1.3 km walk through campus to the Institut AstroPhysique, for the first 2 weeks of the program. During the last two weeks, the hotel will arrange transport to the program venue at the CEA in both the morning and evening. In the weekend there is a shuttle that brings guest to train station Le Guichet with a direct connection to Paris downtown.

Hotel d'Orsay is also a good option, being very close to the station Le Guichet, with also busses leaving to the plateau where the CEA-venue is located, every 12 minutes. From the plateau busstop to the entrance of the CEA-venue is then a 10 minute walk.
From Hotel d'Orsay to the IAS venue for the first two weeks is a nice walk of 1,4 km.
