Field trips

Instructions for Field Trips

A wide range of field excursions are offered to the registered participants who make also a pre-payment, with 7 pre-meeting and 9 post-meeting excursions. The trips require a minimum of 1–20 participants and can accommodate up to a maximum of 9–60 participants.

Except for field excursions FT1, FT3, FT4, and FT12, all the other excursions will start and end in Toulouse.

Important notes regarding field trips

  • The capacity of field trips is limited and will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. Registrations to the fielt trips must happen with the registration to the conference. The payment will be delayed the time we are sure that the chosen field trip reaches sufficient participants to be opened. We will then request full payment. (A waiting list will possibly be made, and the organizers will inform you if a place becomes available.)
  • Trips may be cancelled if under-subscribed. Before purchasing non-refundable travel tickets, please ask the organizers for confirmation that the trip will actually take place.
  • In some of the hotels used for excursions, single-bed rooms may be few or unavailable. Please specify your preference in the registration form, if asked, as shared double- or triple-bed rooms are always much less expensive.
  • Several weeks prior to the excursion, you will receive information with details of the meeting points, transportation during the trip, phone number and email address of excursion leaders.
  • Proper clothing and usual accessories are needed for the excursions (i.e., mountain boots, hat, raining clothes, backpack, …).
  • Trips will be held in various areas, from the seashore to the mountains, and the participants are advised to check the local weather forecasts.
  • Neither the organizers nor the field excursion leaders can offer insurance covering illness or injury for individuals.
