No. 154, July - December 2003


Advantages of the Beaujolais Region

Meeting facilities

Light spirits were lifted


The French Vacuum Society (SFV) hosted ECM-94 in the Beaujolais region, north of Lyon, on February 13-15, 2004. Although February skies tend to be gray and low, the spirits were lifted by the surroundings and, the meeting facilities were excellent.

The large meeting room sported large, and old, wine presses. Everything went smoothly, including shuttles to and from the airport and TGV station. Poor Bernard, from the SFV office, hardly had time to eat as he drove back and forth!

Thanks for all the detailed arrangements are due to Alain Roche. Several of the attendees went on to the Program Committee meeting for IVC-16/ICSS-12/NANO-8 in Genova on the following day.
