Albi, June 2019

This is my first time attending Journées Francophones de Programmation par Contraintes (JFPC), the constraint programming conference for Francophones. This year, it is hosted by the Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT) in Albi.

Anna Louise and I are here with her Belgian colleagues: the beCool delegation from Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain). Together, we are 15% of the participants of this conference!

To save money, we are staying in a very tiny chalet on a campsite just outside Albi. Tiny isn't a problem for me, but the humans seem to be struggling a bit. Luckily, the organisers of JFPC have arranged a shuttle bus to transport us to and from the venue!

At the conference, I am making new friends and enjoying the French coffee snacks: mini viennoiserie! I also came along to a reception at Musée Toulouse-Lautrec, with a gorgeous view of the river Tarn! Naturally, we also ate cheese :)
