The Swiss Tech Convention Center


The conference will take place at the impressive and innovative new Swiss Tech Convention Center at the École 
Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), which has opened its doors for the first time this year.

The Center is located in Lausanne, a cosmopolitan city in the beautiful Lake Geneva region, framed by steep vineyards and snowy mountains. We will be offering participants the chance to explore this beautiful corner of Switzerland through our planned extra activities.
