First WG OTF Workshop, IUEM, Plouzané, France, 22-24 May 2018

The workshop will be held at IUEM from 22 to 24 May 2018. The institute is located at the city of Plouzané, near Brest, on the western coast of France near the entry of the Brest bay. From the Pointe du Diable (Devil’s Point) the view on the cliffs of the Brittany west coast is breathtaking! Especially in May, when the weather is often sunny and (relatively) warm.
