Since the Tour de France will be organising a time-trial in Nice on Tuesday, July 2 - which makes it difficult to find accommodation for the night of July 2 - the RICT 2013 organisers decided to adapt the schedule of the symposium. The scientific programme will start on Wednesday around 11:00 (and not at 08:00, as for previous RICT's), and will end on Friday evening, instead of at lunch time.
Please book your travel and accommodation accordingly.
There are several options to travel to Nice:
- The Nice Côte d'Azur Airport is the second largest in France with 9.6 million passengers travelling through each year, 103 direct-flight destinations and 55 scheduled airlines. For the list of airlines and destinations departing from Nice, daily flight schedules (real time) : www.nice.aeroport.fr
- To go by public transportation from the airport (Terminal 1) to the conference center Acropolis:
