Day 4 - Sunday 19th January 2020

Breakfast at everyone's leisure and return home, or spend time in the city


Airbnb is more and more restricted in Paris due to a crackdown by local authorities, but there are still plenty of options if booked ahead of time.

Most hotels in the center of town will be only a short walk from the location of the meetings and the standards of quality are very good. Here are a few places we recommend:

We recommend the Hoxton Paris, 30-32 Rue du Sentier, 75002 Paris, France. Right in the center of town, in the cool Sentier district, surrounded by hip restaurants and bars, and with all the famous attractions nearby.


The organisers have looked after the programme, but you will have to pay for all your spending (your meal, hotel, travel, drinks, etc.).


Metro all the way! Get a 3 days (or 7 day) metro pass (zones 1-2) so you can get everywhere around town easily. All the locations are easily accessible by metro.

Contacts & practical advice

The currency is Euros. Not all places accept credit cards so have some euros ready. The city is very safe, with the usual rules about staying safe in big cities applying as usual - don't leave your valuables in sight and watch our for random people asking you to sign some petition (they're pickpockets).
