How to get there

Plane: The city of Lausanne is directly connected with the airport of Geneva (approximately a train every 10 minutes. The trip lasts about 50 minutes) and with the airport of Zurich (similar frequency, the trip takes about 2 hours and a half, but there are more international connections).

Car: The EPFL campus is located close to the highway exit “EPFL, St.-Sulpice” on the Swiss highway A1. There is a paying parking on campus.

Métro: To reach the campus by metro, you can take the métro from either Renens train station (M1 métro, direction Lausanne Flon), or from Lausanne train station (take M2 to Lausanne Flon direction Croisettes, then change and get M1 direction Renens). The métro stop is “EPFL”.

Conference dinner

There will be a conference dinner held at Vieil Ouchy, in Place du Port 3, 1006, Lausanne. It is near the metro station “Ouchy-Olympique” on the M2 line (from EPFL, take the M1 metro line until Flon and then change for M2, direction Ouchy-Olympique). Dinner starts at 7pm on Wednesday 12th.


There are several smaller cities that are well-connected to the EPFL and might offer budget-friendly accommodation. In particular, we mention Morges and Renens. From either you can reach EPFL Campus in about 20 minutes.
