China-France Workshop Molecular Catalysts and Catalysis

18-21 July, 2006 - University of Rennes 1

Most of participants are located at the Hotel Campanile, Antoine Becquerel street. It is close to the Campus of Beaulieu.
Please tell to when and where you arrive. She will coordinate pick up at the station or the airport.

During the workshop participants will get WI-FI access. A password will be given to you in Rennes.

The Workshop on Molecular Catalysts and Catalysis program will include 30 lectures, 15 by Chinese researchers and 15 by French researchers, poster presentations and a reception at the city hall of Rennes.

The end of meeting is scheduled Friday 21 mid afternoon. A visit to the Mont St Michel is planned on Saturday 22.
