Practical Information

The school will take place at Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse, Corsica, France


Participants are often lodged in the village of Cargèse, in studios to 3 bedrooms apartments. Only bed and toilet linen are provided. Please bring your own toiletries and beach towel.

A 20 minutes’ walk is required to reach the Institute from the village, it is therefore necessary to provide proper footwear and a flashlight for night returns.

The Institute provides lunches and breakfast to all participants. The Institute housing facilities on site include 27 double rooms, a studio and a villa (for 2-6 persons). Three rooms are fully accessible to persons with reduced mobility.

Evening meals are not included in the package of the Institute (with the exception of specific gala dinners). Participants should autonomously take care for evening meals. The Institute may, upon request, assist in organizing group meals at restaurants in the village.

Travel to Cargèse :

Cargèse is located on the west cost of Corsica. The closest airport and harbour are located in Ajaccio. Other itineraries are possible but please be aware of the scarceness of public transportation in Corsica. Driving through Corsica is scenic but can take a long time.

 We will organize busses from Ajaccio Airport (the exact time will be communicated later)
