It has about 30 000 students, and more than 2 000 researchers working in 46 research units.

The downtown campus of the University of Caen Normandy is thus particularly suited to host the TUTORIALS of ICPEAC, which will be opened and free of charge for Master and PhD students as well as Postdocs coming from all over the world.
