The meeting sessions, accommodations and gala dinner will take place at Hôtel Le Couvent Royal, located in the very nice cloister of St Maximin’s basilica (see Situated at the heart of the Provence area, at a short distance from Côte d’Azur / French Riviera, it is considered to be the most beautiful Provencal Gothic-style structure in southeast France. We hope that this unique environment will stimulate scientific discussions and potential collaborations.

The 2018 GERLI meeting will also be a milestone in the history of our association since it was created 40 years ago and launched with a first meeting held at Toulouse in 1978.
