MAP8 in Grenoble, France

The International Workshop on Material Analysis and Processing in Magnetic Fields will be held in Grenoble, France.

MAP International Workshop was first held in 2004 in Tallahassee, then each two years in Grenoble, Tokyo, Atlanta, Grenoble-Autrans, Okinawa. The last workshop, MAP7, was succesfully held in Providence in 2016

General information

The conference will be held at CNRS/LNCMI, Grenoble High Magnetic Field Laboratory
25 avenue des martyrs, 38000 - GRENOBLE


Many hotels are located close to the conference site, near railway station or in the city center with easy connection by tramway B

Access to CNRS/LNCMI

From Lyon Saint Exupery airport :
The conference center is easily connected to Lyon Saint Exupery airport, which provides international and domestic connections, including Paris

Grenoble is connected to Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport via a shuttle bus service - this shuttle bus stops 5 minutes away on foot from the laboratory - bus stop Place de la Résistance. On the link below, you will find information about this service (timetable and prices).

From Paris Charles de Gaulles airport :

From Paris Charles de Gaulles airport, join Paris Gare de Lyon Railway station and take high speed train TGV to Grenoble. You will then arrive 2 steps from tramway B.

From Grenoble Railway station :

Take tramway B from Grenoble railway station and stop at terminus "Presqu'île Scientifique"
