FAMILIES AT CIRM
Cirm is a centre open to the scientific community, and in particular, to the mathematical community. Cirm believes that care issues (children, relatives) should not be a barrier stopping researchers from participating in a scientific event they see as important to them.
According to its status, Cirm is a "Service" Department of the CNRS, co-headed by the SMF (French Mathematical Society) as well as Aix-Marseille University. As such, it has to fall within the French national standard regulations that govern French Public, Scientific and Technological Establishments, as well as those governing public-access buildings. This means that Cirm can host families only within certain areas of the centre, and according to certain rules. This also means that children should remain under their parents' responsibility and liability at all times.
As a centre welcoming many visitors, Cirm wants to do its best to facilitate the venue of researchers accompanied by family members while ensuring that all researchers present are cared for.
In order to improve its facilities, Cirm will be undertaking new building works from September 2017, and by late 2018 should be able to host families more comfortably.

Note, however, that Cirm does not admit children in all other areas of the centre (library, auditorium, seminar rooms, auditorium, TV-relaxing room, and offices) due to the restrictions explained in the paragraph above.
