Congress Venue

The scientific part of the conference will be held at the new University Campus Complex in the Old Industrial Area «VonRoll» put into operation in 2013. The lecture centre with a shopping-mall atmosphere stimulates scientific discourse and sharing of knowledge. Seven fully equipped lecture halls, as well as rooms for workshops and poster sessions are available in short distance.

How to get there: The Congress venue is best reached by bus no. 11 to the end station “Güterbahnhof“, followed by a 300m walk - please follow the signs. This bus departs from the square in front of the main train station – “Bern Bahnhof“. An alternative is bus no. 12, stop at the end station “Länggasse“, 500m from the Congress venue. This bus drives through the Old City, the main train station and is convenient if you are staying in one of the city‘s hotels. All hotels in Bern and most B&Bs provide free daily tickets for public transportation during your stay. Tickets are valid in the whole area of Bern.

If you wish to park your car at the vonRoll University Campus parking, you may purchase a parking card for the Congress duration at the registration desk. The Price is 75 CHF, whereof 30 CHF will be reimbursed as deposit upon the return at the registration desk by Saturday, 18 July 16:00 at the latest. Only a limited number of parking cards is available. Access to the parking is only possible from the Bremgartenstrasse (see campus map).

A cafeteria and lounge are at the congress participants‘ disposal for recreation and informal meetings.
