The conference venue is the Novotel Gerland Conference Center. It is located by the beautiful Rhône riverbanks across from the Musée des Confluences – Lyon’s emblematic museum of natural history and societies.
The Novotel Gerland is close to the “Halle Tony Garnier” station of tramway line T1, and to the “Debourg” station of metro line B.

There are fastest routes using Metro A from “Vauls-en-Velin - La Soie” to “Perrache” and then connecting to T1, or using Metro B from “Gare Part-Dieu” to “Debourg” and then connecting to T1 backwards, but you have one more connection and the tram route is more touristic than the metro.
Novotel Gerland offers special price to BICA2015 attendees (refundable) from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8. Please follow this link: Novotel room reservation for BICA2015.
