GOING TO AUSSOIS BY TRAIN – LAST UPDATE – BUS LOCATION

Dear colleagues,

For those of you coming by train to Aussois this year, we have booked a transportation by bus between the Chambéry station and the Centre Paul-Langevin. Here are the final information:

  • Sunday 24/09 at 18:30, a bus will leave the station. There is space for 100 people so don’t worry, you’ll get on the bus!
  • Wednesday 27/09 at 18:45, a bus will arrive at the station. It should therefore leave the Centre Paul-Langevin at around 16:45. Of course, the bus will come back to the Centre with the people coming for the doctoral school.
  • Saturday 30/09 at 15:00, a bus will arrive at the station. It should therefore leave the Centre Paul-Langevin at around 13:00.

The bus will meet you at the “Gare Routière de Chambéry”, 250m from the Station “Challes-Les-Eaux”. You can see the plan below for more detailed instructions.

We hope this solution suits everyone, see you in Aussois!

Going to Aussois following the landslide

Dear ALERT members,

Many of ALERT Workshop and School participants already contacted us about the difficulty to get a train connection to Aussois. Some of you received a message related to the cancelling of their train ticket.

The reason of these canceled trains is the rock slope instability that occured in the Maurienne Valley on Sunday 27th August (see a French article here). As a researcher in geomechanics, this instability problem is really interesting.

However, its consequence is the following: the train connections, the highway and the regional roads are currently closed due to this instability.

We may hope that the highways will be open very soon but it will not be the case for the train lines. That means that the travel by car to Aussois at the end of September should be possible.

The Bureau is in contact with the Center Paul Langevin to try to find a solution to the problem.

For the people coming from France to Aussois (by train), we propose you to take a train to Chambéry and we will organise a bus between Chambéry station and Aussois the Sunday 24th at 6:30 pm.

We will organise also a bus connection between Chambéry station and Aussois the Wednesday 27th at 6:45 pm. The same organisation will be foreseen at the end of the workshop (Wednesday 27th at 6:45pm at the station) and school (Saturday 30th at 3pm at the station) .

We will send directly a message to the participant that declared to come by train to Aussois.

We will do our best to organize the transfer.

For the people coming from Italy to Aussois, the situation is a bit more complex and we would suggest to organize your travel to Aussois by car.

We will of course keep you informed in case of any changes.

Thank you again for your support and hoping to see you in Aussois!

Best regards,
Frédéric COLLIN.

Dear ALERT community,

The preliminary programme for the School and the Workshop can be accessed here.

In the continuity of last year edition, a remote access to the doctoral school is proposed at the same price as the on-site option. However, this remote option only gives access to the passive attending of the presentations, and no questions could be asked.

This year, the ALERT Bureau has decided to offer one day of accomodation to:

  • all PhD students attending the doctoral school and belonging to an ALERT member institution (in a double room only);
  • all retired researchers attending the workshop.

Please read the hints in the registration form! After filling the form and pressing the button “Register”, a window will open with your invoice. Please print the window with the invoice for your records! You will also get an email with the registration data afterwards. If you are an ALERT members, the corresponding representative of your ALERT institution will receive the registration data too.

Click here to register for the ALERT Workshop and School 2023.

The accommodation in Aussois will be processed in the order of the registrations (see the hints in the registration form). Please note that the number of rooms in the CNRS “Centre Paul Langevin” is limited.
