Travel, Travel Support, and Directions
Attendees will be responsible for their own travel arrangements and hotel reservations. More details about the hotel options are available on the meeting registration webpage.
View Travel Support Details
The Lymphoma Coalition is generously providing limited funds for travel support to InterLymph members to attend the 2013 Dijon InterLymph meeting. Funds may be requested for airfare and/or hotel costs. InterLymph members can download the form to request travel support from the InterLymph SharePoint site. Others may request a copy of the form by contacting Aaron Norman. In order for a request for travel support to be considered, complete the form and e-mail it to Aaron Norman by April 31, 2013.
Requests should summarize the contribution the attendee will make to the 2013 InterLymph meeting, their role in ongoing InterLymph pooling projects, and anticipated airfare and/or hotel costs. In order to maximize the number of investigators that can be supported, InterLymph does not anticipate being able to cover any person's cost in its entirety. Investigators who have ongoing travel support from active grants are strongly discouraged from applying, particularly if they have also had travel previously supported by this mechanism. Priorities for funding include InterLymph members having maximum involvement in the consortium's pooling projects, active leadership role in InterLymph (i.e., in initiatives, working groups, coordinating committee, etc.), role in the annual meeting organization, and young investigators who are actively involved in data analysis and writing papers.
Requests for travel support will be reviewed and ranked by the Coordinating Committee or their delegates who are not in conflict (i.e., no one may rank their own requests).

The train à grande vitesse (TGV) is available to transport travelers from Paris (100 minutes away) and other major French cities to Dijon.

Tickets can be picked up at the train station within the Gare de Lyon station or in Charles de Gaul (CDG) airport in the yellow automatic machines using the confirmation code and the same Visa card used to purchase the tickets.
Upon arrival in Dijon, travellers can take a tram to reach the hotel. All suggested hotels are on the T1 line as is the Faculty at stop "CHU -Hôpitaux." Take T1 in the direction of "Quetigny" to get to the stop "CHU -Hôpitaux."
Dijon is well connected to the freeway and highway networks for those arriving by car. Note that traffic is limited in the center of the city, so it would be best to park cars for the duration of the visit.
