The CTA spring meeting 2011 will be hosted by the Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planétologie (IRAP).

IRAP is a new lab formed on January 1st, 2011 by merging the Centre d'Etude Spatiale des Rayonnements (CESR), the Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Toulouse Tarbes (LATT), and part of the laboratory Dynamique Terrestre et Planétaire (DTP). IRAP is a joined lab of the French National Research Organization CNRS and of the University Paul Sabatier (UPS) in Toulouse. IRAP is also part of the Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées (OMP), an organization federating 6 laboratories working in the field of Earth and Space Sciences.

IRAP is situated on the "Complexe Scientifique de Rangeuil", a research campus in the south-eastern part of Toulouse that hosts besides a large number of research laboratories the University Paul Sabatier and the French Space Agency CNES. The campus can be easily reached from the city centre by subway (line B) and bus (lines 68 & 51). For more information about how to reach the campus, please go here.

The meeting will take place in 5 different locations on the campus that are all within walking distance:

Note that many of the sites will be used for the parallel sessions, while the main meeting starting on Wednesday will be located at CIAS only.
