Conference fees

This page presents the various possible conference fees, which might seem very high at first glance, compared with other editions of the WAVES conference. This is an “optical illusion”! As explained below, on site meals and accommodation are included. Actually we have done our best to minimize the fees.

Three options are proposed, depending on whether or not you choose to be accommodated on site, and on the meals you wish to take on site.

  1. Full board: This is the « all inclusive » option, recommended to all participants who wish to stay in ENSTA campus during the conference. It includes:
    • the attendance to the conference (with coffee breaks),
    • all meals (breakfasts, lunches, dinners, icebreaker reception, conference banquet),
    • social events,
    • on site accommodation in student rooms (5 nights from Sunday 24 to Friday 29).
  2. Basic: This is the minimum option, for participants who prefer to have an accommodation outside the campus. It includes:
    • the attendance to the conference (with coffee breaks),
    • all lunches, as well as icebreaker reception and conference banquet,
    • social events on Wednesday 27 afternoon.
  3. Basic + dinners: This is an intermediate option, for participants who have an accommodation outside the campus, but decide to stay with the group in the evenings (for dinners and evening social events). It includes:
    • the attendance to the conference (with coffee breaks),
    • all lunches and dinners, icebreaker reception, conference banquet,
    • social events.
