September in Paris is usually sunny. Expect temperature between 15 and 20° Celsius even if sometimes we have a colder weather with 10 to 15 degrees Celsius and some rain. Anyway, there is no extreme weather (very hot or very cold) during that period.

The costs of the meals are not included. Participants can have lunch and dinner in small restaurants around the venue (many restaurants are located in the nearby Rue Mouffetard – Price range from 10 to 20€). See page "Lunch and dinner".

Paris offers a number of hotels at different price categories. It is possible to find single rooms for less than 100 €. Actual prices range from 59€ to 200€ depending on the number of stars and level of comfort. It is advisable to book as soon as possible as moderate-price hotels are often overbooked and Paris is a very touristic place.
