CPM 2023

34th Annual Symposium on Combinatorial Pattern Matching

Marne-la-Vallée, France, June 26–28, 2023

Practicalities

Currency

French currency is the euro, abbreviated EUR. For 1 USD you get approximately 1 EUR. There are lots of currency exchanges offices in the city centre, however, proceed with caution. Credit cards (Visa and Mastercard) are widely accepted, usually even in small shops.

Electricity

230 V, 50 Hz. Plugs of type C and E (also compatible with type F).

Tap water

Tap water is safe to drink.

Tipping

Tips are always included in the final price. Additional tipping is therefore unnecessary.

Safety

The streets of Paris and Marne-la-Vallée are safe. You should however exercise standard caution, as you would do in any large city especially around the very crowded areas. In the case of an emergency, dial the all-purpose emergency number 112.

Language

Most people speak English to some degree. All shops/restaurants in the city centre should have someone with decent English.

Transport

Public transportation is very well developed. We recommend using the metro to get around in Paris, and the RER to travel between Paris and the station Noisy-Champs.

There are several variants of the tickets in Paris. We recommend installing buying the transport pass or the transport application, on which you will be able to load tickets you purchase, such as:

  • One-way, 90 minutes tickets (1,49 EUR) valid within Paris
  • One-way tickets between Paris and the station Noisy-Champs (up to 5 EUR)
  • One-week tickets (22,80 EUR)
Please keep in mind you have to validate the tickets and that standard paper tickets may no longer be sold.

Taxi

Taxi fares are determined by the law. We recommend booking your taxi online (through your favourite app) or through your hotel, as to avoid any misunderstandings and know in advance the price of the ride. There are also taxi stations at which you can enter a taxi. Never enter a taxi whose driver does not show you their valid licence!
