From the airport to the train station
There is a tramway going directly from the airport to the train station, every 15min. Trip duration : 30 min.

Try to group arrivals at the airport, and we'll manage to pick you up, as the tramway is quite expensive.
Lyon is 2h away from Paris by train (TGV), and it could be more convenient and cheaper to land in Paris and take a train to Lyon. Most travel agencies can arrange a combo ticket.
Lyon is not far from Genève, but there are not a lot of trains between Genève and Lyon. It may be easier to land in Genève though.
There are different train stations in Lyon. Be sure to arrive at "Lyon Part Dieu".
You can check schedules and buy your tickets online.

From «Lyon Part-Dieu» train station to the venue¶
The venue is a few stations away from the main train station. You can come by bus (no connection) or with the metro.
Go out of the train station on the "Vivier Merle" side (western side, aka "Rhône side"). If you came with the Rhonexpress tramway you'll have to go through the train station to the other side.
Cross the little place, and walk toward the big shopping center called "Centre commercial Part Dieu" with big ad screens. You'll see a lot of tramways and buses.
Find the C13 bus and take it towards Grange Blanche. Go off at the last stop, Grange Blanche. Continue walking 100m on avenue Rockefeller and you will find the university's entrance.
You should need 30min altogether.
