Each year the scientists involved in the operations and science mission of the CHARA Array gather to exchange news and plans.  The 2018 meeting will be held from Monday, March 12 to Wednesday, March 14 at the Observatoire de Meudon near Paris, France.

The meeting room is on the ground floor of the castle, which is marked as building #9 on the campus map that is available here.  This web page also provides information on rail service to Meudon from the Montparnasse station in Paris.  From the Meudon train station, it is a 20 minute walk (uphill) to the campus.  Information on where to stay in Paris can be found on the hotel information page.
