Where? The 2017 BOINC Workshop will take place at:

Institut d'Astrophique de Paris (IAP) 98bis Boulevard Arago, 75014, Paris, France.

Talks will be held in the Salle des Séminaires located on the basement level of the institute.

IAP is located near the heart of Paris, a 10 minute walk from the latin quarter, and directly across from the Denfer-Rocherou RER-B commuter rail stop which makes accessing much of the rest of Paris quite convenient.

Some background about IAP:

The IAP itself is a multi-disciplinary laboratory, working at the forefront of both astrophysics and theoretical physics. It is the main home of the [email protected] team. The principal areas of research at the IAP are the formation of planetary systems and extra solar planetary research, stellar physics, galactic evolution, large-scale structure, observational cosmology, physics of the primordial Universe, and high energy physics.

IAP researchers are observers, modelers, and theorists. Their research relies on large observational programs, numerical calculations, or advanced analytical methods. The IAP consists of about 150 researchers, engineers, technicians, administrators, post-doctorates and thesis students, and regularly welcomes interns and foreign visitors.

The IAP also hosts a second-year Master’s program entitled "Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Engineering", as well as the UPMC’s branch for the l'Ecole Doctorale d'Astronomie et d'Astrophysique d'Ile-de-France ("Doctoral School for Astronomy and Astrophysics", ED 127). It has an exclusive partnership with the Paris Observatory, which is located on the same campus. It also hosts the general secretary of the International Astronomical Union (UAI) since 1988. The IAP actively shares scientific knowledge, in particular by organizing public presentations on the first Thursday of every month.
