From the EuroPython site's travel section:
The main entrance to CERN (Meyrin site) is located right by the French border
on the north-west side of Geneva. The nearby districts aren't particularly
exciting, but I imagine that there are decent/mainstream/expensive hotels
near the airport, and there are several hotels in the centre of town. CERN's
own accommodation isn't bad, though, for those undecided about whether a
hotel is required.

CERN's a big place, so I don't think it has (or needs) a street address.
Here's the contact page, reachable from CERN's home page:

I imagine so, and Benedikt's previous information gives that impression, too.
Certainly, I don't think the other major site (Prevessin) has much in the way
of conference facilities.
