Attendees seeking reimbursement must follow SFC travel policy. Most importantly, take a screen shot of your airfare search. Your ticket must be within $100 of the lowest fare. Keep receipts for transport and lodging. Meal cost and misc. expenses are handled by a per diem and don't require receipts.


Google Flights search is probably your best bet. kayak.com and mobissimo.com can also be useful.

There are three airports in Paris: Charles de Gaulle (CDG, normally long-haul flights), Orly (ORY, mostly inter-European flights), and Beauvais (BVA, mostly low-budget airlines). BVA is a bit far from Paris (85km). CDG and ORY are both connected by rail to central Paris.

Paris is also the center of the TGV train network with frequent high-speed connections from London, Brussels, Amsterdam, Geneva, etc.

Carrefour Numérique² is located inside Cité des sciences et de l'industrie (Floor -1) which is about 15 minutes by Metro line 7 (Porte de la Villette) from central Paris.


CR will be looking into hotels. There are plenty of reasonably priced AirBnB places nearby.


After the event, forward your receipts to the SFC. You need to also send payment information (name, currency, paypal account or bank information: see travel policy for more details).
