IFIP Working Group 2.11, Twentieth Meeting

Febuary 17-20th in Paris, France

The meeting will be held in Paris, France, hosted by Julia Lawall.

The meeting will last 3.5 days; the first three days will be full-day, whereas the last day will be a half-day session.


LIP6, 4 place Jussieu, 75005 Paris

room 25-26/105

When you arrive at the Jussieu metro station (either because you took the metro or on foot), follow everyone else into the university. You will need to open any bags. Make a sharp left, such that you are walking parallel to the street. Enter tower 26. Sometimes the first door you come to does not open. Just walk around the tower to find another door or take the elevator. Go to the first floor (2 flights of stairs). Look for the hallway marked 25-26, and then take the door at the immediate right. The hallway door requires a key. I will monitor it one hour before the meeting starts. If you arrive late, send an email. Eduroam is available.


From CDG: RER B to St Michel, and then line 10 to Jussieu (direction Gare d'Austerlitz). The metro station is actually called Cluny-La Sorbonne, but it can be reached from the St Michel RER station without going outside. This trip can be done with a single ticket (10.30 euros). It takes around 1 hour.

From Orly also takes about an hour, but is less convenient.

From the Gare du Nord, you can also take the RER B line to St Michel and then line 10 to Jussieu. In this case, you just need an ordinary metro ticket.

From the Gare de l'Est, you can take line 7 to Jussieu, with no changes. From the Gare de Lyon, you can walk (around 20 minutes).


The Hotel Minerve is suggested. There are other hotels nearby, on the rue des Ecoles or the rue Linne. For other accomodations, consider staying near metro line 10 or metro line 7.


The cost of the registration will be 300 euros. The registration site is now open: https://congres.upmc.fr/ifip2020/

The registration fee covers lunch, dinner, and snacks on February 17-19, and snacks on February 20.

See below for schedule, note that the actual scheduling of talks will not be available until the meeting starts. Members: please add yourself and your topic, alphabetical order by last name:

We will follow our usual format of interactive talks with an active audience, using a chess clock for timing, as follows. For each talk the speaker and the audience each get at most 25 minutes. The audience does not have to wait until the end of a talk to ask questions; interaction and discussion is encouraged. (But experience from previous meeting shows that it is useful to let the speaker at least finish their introduction before interrupting.) To ensure fairness, administration of the time used by each party is done using a chess clock. Operation of the clock rotates among participants. Both speakers and audience are expected to contribute to make talks and discussions engaging, interesting, and useful. Therefore, we observe a policy of no use of electronic devices during talks (other than the device the speaker uses to present slides). Bring paper and pen for making notes.
