HIP 2015 will be held at the Excelsior in Nancy http://www.brasserie-excelsior.com/en/your-events.html (50 rue Henri Poincaré, 54000 Nancy). The Excelsior is not a hotel, only a restaurant. Details on travel information and accommodations can be found on ICDAR website: http://2015.icdar.org/venue
A post-workshop tour is planned on Saturday, August 22, just after the workshop, at 5:00 pm (duration: around 1.5 hours), to visit the Library of Nancy. The Library is 5mn walk from the Excelsior. Unfortunately, for organization reasons, the visit will be limited to 30 people. Registration to the tour has been sent by email to HIP attendees.
