Trip Report E. W. Dijkstra, St. Pierre-de-Chartreuse, 12–19 Dec. 1976
It was a meeting of IFIP Working Group 2.3 on “Programming Methodology”, hosted by Gerard Veillon of the University of Grenoble in Hotel Beau Site in St. Pierre-de-Chartreuse, a place once selected for a monastery because of its inaccessibility. Coen Bron —the other Dutch participant— wanted to go by car —after the meeting he remained there for a skiing weekend— and picked me up on Saturday morning. Driving alternatingly, we arrived in Beaune on Saturday evening, having had one major stop. Along European highways, and particularly along the French ones, there is now a chain of highway restaurants under the name of Jacques Borel and in one of these we had lunch. It was the kind of mistake one makes in one’s life only once.
