The conference takes place at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), one of the two federal technical Universities in Switzerland. With its 200 Professors, 2000 researchers and over 4700 students it is the second largest research center for engineering sciences of Switzerland.

EPFL is at a 10-minute-ride by local train from downtown Lausanne, next to the lake of Geneva, and 30 minutes by train from Geneva International Airport. It is certainly one of the most appealing areas in Europe with a beautiful view of the Alps' highest peak, the Mont-Blanc.
