Instructions for local hosts: Limited financial support for speakers is available through the Seminar budget. This is meant to cover for travel expenses and/or 1-night stay. Please, remember to get in touch with the administrative staff for any travel/stay arrangements, and to open the "ordre de mission" for the spearker's visit at least 3 weeks in advance. If the seminar is going to take place in person at the Mt.Gros site, remember also to book the restaurant for the speaker.

Instructions for speakers: Lagrange Seminars last for 1h total (45min talk + 15min Q&A), and are held in English . Since our Institute has several teams working on a large variety of fields, we recommend to start your talk with a very broad and 'pedagogical' introduction of your research field.
