ERLARS 2012 is ECAI Workshop #10 on Tuesday and will take place in the Polytech Montpellier, which is part of the University of Science and Technology in Montpellier (UM2). The Polytech is in building 31 of the University Campus, the workshop will take place in room SC005 of that building. The complete street address is Polytech, Building 31, Montpellier 2 University, Place Eugène Bataillon, 34090 Montpellier, Hérault, Languedoc-Roussillon, France.
The building is about 600m walking distance from the nearest Tram station, called Universités des Sciences et Lettres (Tram 1, blue line). This, in turn, is 6 stops away from Corum.
