Conference location

The building in which the event will take place is called Collège Propédeutique 2 and it is located in the heart of the campus of the University of Lausanne, just 200 meters away from the EPFL (Ecole Politechnique Fédéral de Lausanne). Reaching the conference location from the center of lausanne is very easy. Here are some hints.

By public transport


A metro station is located just in front of the railway station (main street, opposite side): take the metro uphill, in the direction of "Centre-Ville"; go out two minutes later (just 1 stop) at Lausanne-Flon and then transfer to the the other metro line (Tsol). There is one departure every 10 minutes and only one possible direction (direction Renens). Go out after 10 minutes at the stop Unil-Sorge. The conference location is just in front of you, when you go down the metro. The building name is Collège Propédeutique 2.
