The EWLA 2018 will take place in Palais Beaumont, Allée Alfred de Musset, 64000 Pau.

"In southern Aquitaine, with a panoramic view of the Pyrenees just opposite, Le Palais Beaumont reigns over extensive parkland right near the centre of Pau. The complex is listed as an HCCE venue, a very rare distinction that recognises Europe’s most beautiful conference centres." (source : pau-congres.com).

The city of Pau

Pau is the second largest city in Aquitaine, ideally placed in the heart of a territory at the confluence of France and Spain. Pau is at 30 km from the Pyrenées and about one hour from the Atlantic coast. The city center, along a rocky balcony at the southern end of the city, offers a unique panorama of the Pyrenees. The lower town is crossed by the Gave, a tributary of the River Adour, which constitutes a remarkable wet natural environment. This exceptional environment, as well as the micro-climate that prevails, have made Pau a climatic station very popular with the Anglo-Saxon bourgeoisie since the end of the 19th century. Pau is today classified tourist resort and enjoys the label "City of Art and History". The ancient feudal fortress of the viscounts of Béarn, where Henry IV was born in 1553, and which was converted into a royal palace by Marguerite of Angouleme, sister of Francis I, and her husband Henry II of Albret, heirs to the crown of Navarre, was entirely restored in the 19th century by Louis-Philippe and Napoleon III. The museum contains a unique artistic and historical collection in an exceptional setting.
