Van Pickup: A taxi-van has been organized to transport guests flying into Geneva Airport. Your driver will meet you on the Swiss side of the Geneva airport (Cointrin). Once you have exited the luggage claim, you will move directly into the Flight Arrival Lobby (Swiss Side) where you should find a designated person who will wait for each passenger with a sign that says, "Harvard Conference at Tufts University." Please stay in that lobby as the greeter will look for you there and direct you to the next van departing for Talloires, which will take you to your hotel. There may be a short wait at the airport, as we try to group van departures with participants whose arrival times coincide.

For those of you taking a train to Geneva, please present yourselves at the Swiss side of the Geneva airport and wait in the Flight Arrival Lobby (the train station, Cornavin, and airport are connected).  If you are taking a train to Annecy, please confirm with me if you will need transportation from the Annecy train station to the conference.

If you encounter any difficulties, please telephone Tufts University European Center at (33-4) 50-60-74-04. Please note: If you are dialing France from Switzerland, you must dial "00" first. After the conference, we will also shuttle you back to the Geneva airport or train station, if you requested ground transportation from us.


Arrival in Talloires: Please come to the Priory at the Tufts University European Center at 3:45 pm on Friday, June 16. It is located on the road that runs between Hotel Le Cottage and Hotel L'Abbaye.

Messages: During the conference, messages can be left for you at the Tufts University European Center; Tel: (33-4) 50-60-74-04; Fax: (33-4) 50-60-72-71.


Dress: The conference sessions are definitely informal (polo shirts, khakis, etc). For the two dinners, the men generally wear coats and ties, but we are not strict. Friday night’s dinner will be more casual than Saturday. Probably the wiser advice is to bring good sturdy shoes. If you like to hike, there are pleasant but fairly demanding hikes around Talloires.
