Staying in Paris

As the congress is getting closer, participants have been asking for suggestions for staying in Paris.

We didn’t make any arrangements with hotels. Sorry. However, we‘d suggest AirBnB or any place near Line 12 of Parisian metro.

The surroundings of the venue would be certainly more affordable, but it is really quiet and not very interesting at night.

Our opinion is to prefer somewhere around Line 12 metro stations:

  • Montmartre is a lovely for visits and walking around (Pigalle and Abbesses stations).
  • Lamarck is local, familiar and trendy. It might somehow expensive.
  • Jules Joffrin is also local, perhaps less expensive than Lamarck. You have the Marie du XVIII arr. in here as well as some local bars (L’Alibi, L’Absurde Imposture, Le Festin Nu, etc.).
  • Marcadet is multicultural and should have affordable hotels. Some us live in that neighborhood.
  • Marx Dormoy should be also affordable. It has a small Chinatown.
  • Porte de la Chapelle has big buildings, and it is not really interesting.

If you haven’t done so, you can check the plan of Line 12:


CAC.5 book is getting ready

Registration is now open

We have opened the registration form to authors, artists and public in general.

The fee for authors cover publication in the book of proceedings, coffee breaks, and congress activities. We are working hard to get ready and offer a complimentary printed copy of the book to registered authors (some copies will also be available for sale during the congress).

As you may note, general public is granted free access, but registration is mandatory. This is because we have to provide a list of assistants to the MSH, for security reasons and because places are limited.

Decisions and evaluations have been sent for all proposals

Right on schedule, we sent yesterday decisions on evaluations. It was a very difficult to select papers and artworks. Unfortunately time and space do not allow us to go further than we can. If you have been accepted, please follow the next steps and hope to see you soon in Paris.
