ENGINEERING WITH MEMBRANES 2013

 

UPDATED!

There will be two buses organized on September 3, departing from La Rochelle Train Station at 15:45 pm and at 18:45 pm.

For the return trip, thre will be three buses departing from Oléron at 7:30 am, 9:30 am and at 12:45 pm.

Travel time is about 1 h 15 min.

 

 

The meeting will take place at La vieille Perrotine, a CNRS leisure center at Oléron, an island on the Atlantic coast of France, in the Charente-Maritime department (one of the four departments of the administrative region of Poitou-Charentes).

Oléron is 30 km from Rochefort, 70 km from La Rochelle, 40 km from Royan, 50 km from Saintes and 500 km from Paris. A three-kilometre viaduct connects it with the mainland since 1966.

 

 

 

Airports : La Rochelle (1 hour), Bordeaux (2 hours). The airport of La Rochelle-Laleu is located at 5 km northwest from the centre of La Rochelle, but it serves only certain European cities (mostly in the United Kingdom).

The city center can be reached from the airport by a public bus (Yélo; www.yelo-larochelle.fr), every 30 min ffrom Monday to Saturday: route 7 Rompsay / ZI Périgny (bus stop: Place de Verdun) 1.30 €, single ticket available on board (cash only). Bus transfers are allowed within 60 min of first use.

For people coming from other cities or countries, the Charles de Gaulle international airport in Paris is the best choice. This airport is connected to Paris by the RER B suburban route (the Réseau Express Régional). From the airport, you should take the RER B line to Chatêlet-Les Halles and change to the Paris Métro Line 4 to Gare de Montparnasse (a Paris railways station) . There, take a TGV train to La Rochell or Surgères. These are the closest train stations to Oleron.

 

 

Bus Les Mouettes (http://www.lesmouettes-transport.com/) provides the service to Saint-Pierre d'Oleron, not to the meeting center (wich is 6 km away). This company serves St. Pierre d'Oléron from train stations in the vicinity:

From La Rochelle, you can take one of the free shuttle buses that we have organised at 15:45 and 18:45 pm on September 3 from the Train Station, or use the public bus line 23 with a daily departure at 13:50 (arrival in Saint Pierre at 15:25) or at 18:43 (arrival in Saint Pierre at 20:13).
