Arriving by Plane
Switzerland has three airports: Geneva (the closest), Zurich, and Basel (Basel airport has no train station, please take the bus to Basel SBB). From the airports you can proceed to Lausanne by train (highly recommended since faster) or by car.
Arriving by Train
The destination train station is Lausanne, Vaud. Details on train connections can be found through the
Swiss Railway web page.
From the station in Lausanne (Gare CFF) you may take the
M2 metro (direction Croisettes) to the CHUV. This will take around 10min.
Arriving by Car
- From Airport Geneva-Cointrin, take highway A1 to Lausanne, change to A9 direction Gd-St-Bernard and leave at exit Lausanne-Vennes .
- From Airport Zurich-Kloten, take highway A1 to Bern/Yderdon-les-Bains, change to A9 direction Gd-St-Bernard and leave at exit Lausanne-Vennes .
- From Airport Basel-Mulhouse, follow highway A3 to Basel. Then take A2 - A1 to Bern and Yderdon-les-Bain. Afterwards change to A9 direction Gd-St-Bernard and leave at exit Lausanne-Vennes .
- From exit Lausanne-Vennes  follow B1 to Lausanne-Centre until the CHUV. Parking at the CHUV is very limited and expensive, so we recommend to use public transport within Lausanne.

Participants who have submitted an abstract will be advised in time before the meeting whether their abstract has been selected for an oral or poster presentation.
There will be two, thematically focused poster sessions on Thursday and Friday to allow young researchers to present and discuss their results with a broader audience. We would like to encourage the presenting author(s) to be present in front of their posters for the duration of the full session.
The size of the board available for each poster is 84 cm (width) x 118 cm (height).
We have organized a special Symposium Banquet on Saturday, September 10th as a boat trip on the lake. We will enjoy a delicate gourmet dinner menu while gazing at the Lac Leman landscape as it glides by.
