Important: Without badge, entry to the lecture rooms will be refused.


Lecture rooms

All rooms are equipped with projectors (multimedia). You may connect your own laptop. The most common adapters (HDMI, VGA) are installed. If need be, bring your own adapter and USB-key.


Poster Session

The postersession will take place on Tuesday evening and during lunchbreak on Wednesday. The poster boards are numbered according to the program and grouped by session. All posters are expected to be presented on both days.

Maximum poster size: A0 portrait


Coffee Breaks and Lunch

The coffee breaks, aperitif (Tuesday evening) and the lunch buffet on Wednesday will take place in the exhibition area. Those items are covered by the conference fee.
The campus mensa as well as nearby restaurants are at your disposal for lunch on the other days.


Conference Dinner

The dinner will take place on Thursday in the restaurant Ayledo after the parallel sessions. The fee is CHF 90.-  / € 95.- per person (including 3-course-meal and drinks). The number of places is limited. Please register in any case in advance so we can plan accordingly. A registration on site is not possible!


The dinner fee must be paid and transferred to our account at latest by 21 August in order to guarantee your meal. We will keep only a small fraction of the unpaid dinner places, which will be assigned to persons paying cash upon arrival on a first come - first serve base. Unfortunately we are forced to take this measure because of experiences made in previous years when too many unpaid last-minute cancellations occurred for which we still were indebted to the restaurant. We hope for your understanding.



During the whole conference the eduroam wireless network is available for the participants. Persons without access to eduroam can also use the unibas-visitor network.
