Toulouse in the South West of France is the fourth largest city of
France and a lively university center. Toulouse offers numerous
inexpensive accommodations, including student residences.

The participants are on their own in finding accommodation. There is the
hotel list of the tourist office and a special list for residences. Of
course, there are other ways to find hotels in Toulouse. For scientists
on short visits to Toulouse (e.g., for juries or project meetings), we
typically choose friendly two-star hotels.

LACL 2014 is taking place at IRIT, Paul Sabatier University, close to
the "Université Paul Sabatier" station (metro line B). Hotels in the
city center are close to the metro (line B stations there:
Compans-Caffarelli, Jeanne d'Arc, Jean Jaures, Francois Verdier and

Fees (early registration):

330 euros (regular), 230 euros (student)

Late registration:

380 euros (regular),  280 euros (student)

Gala dinner: 60 euros.

Thank you again,
LACL 2014 Program Co-Chairs
Nicholas Asher and Sergei Soloviev
