The workshop will be held at the University of Strasbourg.
The nearest international airport is Entzheim (SXB), just a ten-minute train ride from Strasbourg city centre. Other nearby airports that will require a train/bus connection include Baden-Baden, Basel and Zurich.
December is a great time to visit Strasbourg, as the world-famous Christmas market is ongoing, attracting up to 250,000 visitors each year. Strasbourg is also regarded as a "capital" of Europe, with the European Congress and Parliament, and also the Parliament of Human Rights. See below for photos.
Please see the list of local hotels if you are looking for accommodation. Please note that due to the Christmas market, hotels tend to be very busy and early booking is recommended.
