How to reach TELECOM ParisTech
There are two International Airports that serve Paris: Orly (ORY) and Charles de Gaulle Roissy (CDG). Both airports are equivalent with regard to getting to and from the conference site, so this should not be a deciding factor for which airline to choose. Paris has also many train connections to major European cities. Train schedules can be consulted at the SNCF ( French railway company ) web server or directly at the SNCF High Speed Trains web server.
TELECOM ParisTech is within 7 minutes walk from the "CORVISART" Metro station (on line 6). The Metro system and the RER (suburban commuter that reaches airports) are interconnected; you can travel from one system to the other with the same ticket. However, while any trip on the metro system costs one ticket, the price of the trip on the RER system depends on the distance covered. More about RER, Metro and Bus transportation in Paris can be found in RATP ( Parisian Metro company ).
Reaching TELECOM ParisTech from Charles de Gaulle Roissy airport:
Taxi from Charles de Gaulle to TELECOM ParisTech is about 50 euros on the meter (there may be some small additional charge for luggage).
Reaching TELECOM ParisTech from Orly airport:
Take ORLYBUS towards "DENFERT-ROCHEREAU'', get off at ``RENE COTY'' station. Then it's a 10 minutes walk to TELECOM ParisTech, or you may take Bus 62 on Alesia street ( see map ).
Taxi from Orly to TELECOM ParisTech is about 25-30 euros on the meter (there may be some small additional charge for luggage).
One USD is roughly equivalent to 0.80 euros. You may use a currency conversion tool to check the current equivalences between the euro and your own currency.

Peter Cramer and Maarten Boasson
Maarten Boasson studied cello with Sylvain Wannenmacher (in France) and Anner Bijlsma (Amsterdam). He participated in a master-class with Wolfgang Laufer, and further studied with Gary Hoffman and Joel Marosi. He taught cello at a regional music college and during 10 years was cellist of a small baroque group performing widely in the Netherlands and abroad. He later joined a chamber orchestra in which he played numerous solo parts. Maarten performed several solo concertos and is a very active chamber music player.
As a scientist, Maarten has been active for almost 40 years in the field of complex, distributed and fault-tolerant systems. He worked in industry for 30 years and in that period developed a novel and highly successful system's software architecture for this class of systems. He was appointed professor of computer science at the University of Amsterdam in 1996 from which position he recently retired. He has been on the editorial board of a number of journals and helped organize scientific conferences as member, or chair, of innumerable program committees.
Maarten co-founded the European Institute Paralimes, aiming at high level fundamental inter-disciplinary research. As an offspring of this activity, he created a Foundation for fostering the interaction between the arts and the sciences.
Peter Cramer finished his organ studies in 1983, and obtained his soloist diploma piano with the highest honors two years later at the Conservatory in Groningen, the Netherlands. He received a stipendium from the Dutch Government that enabled him to pursue his piano studies with Prof. Andrzej Stefanski at the conservatory of Warsaw, Poland. He is much in demand as a piano teacher and performs regularly both in chamber music concerts, and as a soloist. He performed several of the major piano concertos, and a good part of the chamber music literature.
Peter Cramer and Maarten Boasson have been playing as a duo since 1994. They have given numerous concerts covering most of the Netherlands and reaching as far as Vienna, Oxford, Nîmes, Paris, New York, and Cairo. Their repertoire ranges from baroque to contemporary music, and is being extended steadily. Occasionally, they invite other musicians in order to play trios; recently they performed Beethoven's Triple concerto.
The duo took lessons with Alain Meunier from the Conservatoire National de Musique in Paris, with Joel Krosnick from the Juilliard School of Music in New York, and with Christiane Frucht at the Hochschule fuer Musik in Hannover.
