Booking accommodation is the task of conference participants.

We encourage you to book soon as there will be a major conference in Geneva on Sept. 11-14 which may affect hotel bookings in Lausanne, too.

To provide some help, we compiled a list of accommodations we can recommend based on past experience and location (see below).

Furthermore, we have pre-booked 20 hotel rooms in Lausanne, which we aim for participants with narrow budgets. These are proper hotels with relatively low prices, although you may be able to find cheaper solutions. See below for detailed information.

The field trip accommodation is described here.

/Disclaimer: the organizers have no financial interest in any of the accommodations listed on this page. /

Conference participants interested in these rooms should contact us, and we will connect you to the hotels. The hotels will not take any direct reservations directly for these 20 rooms. You will pay directly to the respective hotels, the conference organizers will not handle any accommodation money. You will be fully responsible to manage your booking with the respective hotel (change of dates, cancellation, special requests, etc.)
