Welcome to PATA Days 2022

Dear colleagues,

After this too long period without being able to meet in person, we are very happy to announce that the organization of the PATA Days in France has progressed: the conference will occur during the last week of September 2022, i.e. from 25th (Sunday) to 30th (Friday).

The venue will be in Southeastern France, we have identified  a beautiful site, at Pont Royal en Provence, close to Aix-En-Provence. The site was selected where the attendance will be grouped, to foster exchanges, following the “philosophy” of the previous PATA Days conferences. Prices are all-included : registration fees, room (single or shared), meals, a gala dinner,  2 field-trips,  with transit by bus. The maximum capacity is 120 attendees.

Also a great post-conference field trip in the Alps is organized after the meeting but registration is for only 25 persons. The field trip will happen in rugged and high elevation terrain.
