Interim Meeting, travel direction

I'm very pleased to host the interim meeting in Grenoble.

Here are some travel directions:

         - Grenoble Saint Geoir. Very little traffic on it. Mostly
           4 flights a day for Paris-Orly (2 in the morning, 2 in the evening)
           and return from Paris-Orly.
           Beware: most international flight arrives at PARIS-Charles-de-Gaule
            (Roissy) which is very far away from Orly.
           A shuttle bus to Grenoble-downtown waits passenger at each flight.
           You can also rent a car at the airport. Gaz is expensive in france.
           Taxy is very expensive on long distance. It's about 40 min drive to
           Just take the Highway to Grenoble.

          - Lyon-Satolas
            It's an international airport, many flights arrives there. You can
            arrives there in a flight connected from Paris-CDG (Air-France,
            or Zurich (Swissair). There is a shuttle service direct to
every hour.
            You can also rent a car at the airport. It's an hour drive to
            Just take the Highway to Grenoble.

            Note: if you depart from the same airport you arrived, ask for a
            shuttle ticket, it's much cheaper (190F instead of 2 x 130F for
Lyon's airport)

           - Geneva
              It's about 2 hours drive from Grenoble. It might make some sense
if you
              intend to rent a car.


            It's usually the best way to come to Grenoble from Paris. It takes
3h only,
            as the train (TGV) drives 300kph, a little less than 200mph.
            The TGV leaves from PARIS-Gare-de-Lyon and is direct, non stop to
            Some of them are direct from Paris-CDG
           See http://www.sncf.fr for details (they have an english version)

       Here is a list of hotels downtown Grenoble:

        · hotel des Alpes - 45 avenue Félix Viallet  +33 4 76 87 00 71
        12 rooms reserved.  270F with breakfast. Specify IETF.

        · hotel Bastille - 25 avenue Félix Viallet  +33 4 76 43 10 27
        20 rooms reserved 247F with breakfast fax: +33 476 87 52 69. Specify

        · hotel Bristol - 11 avenue Félix Viallet +33 4 76 46 11 18 
        - room: 175 F to 245 F (Breakfast 25 F) 
        · hotel de l'Institut - 10 rue Barbillon  +33 4 76 46 36 44
        - room  215 F to  240 F (Breakfast 25 F)

        - room 190 F to 210 F (Breakfast 25 F) 

      The standard of those hotels is somehow less than the one we usually
       for IETF meetings, but they are OK.

        All those hotels are less than 5 min walk from the train station.
Airport shuttle
        arrives at the bus station wich is located next to the train station.

        Many!!! The best ones are in the pedestrian streets, 5 to 10 min walk
        the hotels. Menus are from 60F to 160F+. 

        Downtown Grenoble, just walk. To go to the university Campus, take the
        Tramway B direction University. it's about 15 min ride. Tram fare is
        per ticket. You might buy 10 tickets for about 50F.
        You might want to take a taxi, it will be a 10 min ride for about 50F
