Visa requirements:

• A visa to France is not necessary in many cases, including for citizens of the countries of the Schengen Agreement, the United States, Canada, Israel, and Japan. However, it is mandatory in other cases, for example for citizens of mainland China and India. Please visit the web site of the French government for all the necessary information. If a visa is needed, we strongly recommend that you get in touch with your local French consulate as soon as possible in order to be aware of the local procedure. Please allow sufficient time to process a visa application.
• You are responsible for making your own arrangements for obtaining an entry visa if one is required. Acceptance by us of your booking does not imply that an invitation will be issued to you, nor that a visa will be granted. The conference organizers have no influence on the decisions of the immigration authorities.
• According to the France Diplomatie website, scientists are not charged a visa application fee, please prepare the necessary documentation to support this — a Ph.D. diploma and short CV should suffice, but please contact the consulate to find out what specific requirements they have.
• If you are required to give an address in France when applying for a visa, please use the following:
University Paris South XI,
LRI, Bât.490,
91405 Orsay cedex,
France

Weather in June-July:

Weather in July tends to be somewhat rainy, with an average low around 14°C and an average high around 24°C. The record high of 40°C was set in 1883 and the record low of 6°C in 1907, so do expect quite a bit of variation. (Last year in July, recorded temperatures ranged between 10°C and 34°C.)
