Local Information

Close to the city of Antibes Sophia Antipolis is a European technology park. Much of the park falls within the commune of Valbonne, which lies northwest of Antibes and southwest of Nice, France. Sophia Antipolis is named after Sophie Glikman-Toumarkine, the wife of French Senator Pierre Laffitte, founder of the park, and incidentally, Sophia, the Greek word for wisdom, and Antipolis, the ancient Greek name of Antibes. Many of the roads within the technology park have Greek names. There is a giant sculptured Greek urn as a centre-piece on one of the roundabouts.

Conference Accommodation

We are now working with a specialist agency to offer a range of hotels for all ACPIL conferences, with prices lower than many online booking engines. You will find a number of hotels at various prices, but the designated Conference Hotel for ECGBL is to be confirmed. This is usually where pre-conference drinks are held and where any transportation required for the conference dinner will run from.
