Workshop venue

The workshop will take place at the University of Lausanne in the Anthropole building (see on map). Desk opening time: 10:30, at the entry of the room ANT-2064 (see on map).

How to get there

We recommend to use public transportation; take the metro m1 and get off at UNIL-Chamberonne; the Anthropole building is right next to the station.

Hint: The Web site of the Swiss Federal Railways (and their SBB Mobile app) offers travel information for essentially all public transit in Switzerland. You can search for connections using street addresses, local transit stops (bus, tram, etc.) and train stations.

The nearest airport is Geneva Airport (GVA). The airport has its own train station, Genève Aéroport, from which you can take direct trains to Lausanne.

Internet access and power sockets

If your institution is a member of eduroam, you can use VPN and your home user name and password to get Internet access.

Power sockets: Switzerland has its own standard for power sockets (often referred to as “Type J”). No adapter is needed for two-pole Europlugs, but Schuko and French-style plugs will not fit without an adapter.
