The 16th GERLI Lipidomics Meeting will take place at Hotel IBIS Meriadeck (35 Cours Maréchal Juin, 33000 Bordeaux) which is located in Bordeaux city center, directly on Tramway line A, and within walking distance of the cathedral and city center.
In application of the french decree n ° 2021-699, from July 21, 2021 for all meetings equal to or greater than 50 people to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19, each participant will be asked to present a valid health pass, as well as an identity document.
IBIS Meriadeck offered single and double rooms in two (IBIS budget) and three (IBIS) stars categories, but all have now been booked:
Participants wishing to attend the meeting should now check for further availability (but without special fees) directly at IBIS (https://all.accor.com/hotel/0950/index.fr.shtml) or contact the organizers (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Several other hotels are available in the surrounding of the congress venue, but without special prices. They can be found using classical hotel reservation websites. Nethertheless, another important national event will start in Bordeaux on September 29th so that getting a room for the 28th may be difficult.
