(Schedule & Abstracts)
After a first contact with the organizers, invited participants will be contacted by the CIB staff concerning the dates and details of their visits. Invited participants will get financial support or a participation to their travel or living expenses. The CIB staff will take care of their hotel reservation. The budget of the program is limited, but we hope to provide adequate support to all invited participants.
Other participants are welcome to attend the conferences, but are advised that at this time the funding for the program has been entirely spent. Those participants will therefore be expected to cover their own expenses and make their own hotel arrangements (see the hotel list below).
Participants who will be attending the September 3-7 event in Zurich should contact FIM staff in this respect. If you will be attending this event only, coordinate your visit with FIM staff, not with CIB staff. If you will be attending events in both Zurich and Lausanne, then you should contact both CIB and FIM staff.
All participants (invited or not) should register. Please fill the registration form.
Hotel arrangements for invited participants will be made directly by the staff at CIB.
For the other participants, EPFL has negotiated discounted rates at the following hotels for the period August 20-September 2:
To book your room, please contact directly one of these hotels and mention "Algebraic" to obtain the EPFL preferential price. The above prices include city taxes, VAT and breakfast. A credit card number is required to confirm/guarantee your reservation. All participants will be required to pay their room at their departure.
As the hotels in Lausanne are very full at this period, please book your room as soon as possible. If there aren't any rooms left please contact the tourism office: http://www.lausanne-tourisme.ch
