The conference will be held at the Centro Stefano Franscini, the conference center of ETH Zurich, located at Monte Verità, a beautiful hill on top of the lake town of Ascona, in Southern Switzerland.


With a history dating back to the early 20th century, Monte Verità has been a place of culture, arts and history for decades and since 1989 it has become a conference center, thus combining its rich artistic and historical past with high-profile scientific research.


The center offers accommodation for approximately 70 people, it has a restaurant where all the meals during the conference will be served and a park with a beautiful view on the Lago Maggiore and the surrounding mountains.


A free wireless internet connection is available in the bedrooms and in the common spaces.
