View to Lago Maggiore Lake

The symposium takes place in the Centro Stefano Franscini (CSF) in Ascona, Switzerland. CSF is the international conference centre of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, situated in the south of Switzerland (Canton Ticino) at Monte Verità.

The unique microclimatic characteristics in this sunny southern part of Switzerland generate an exuberant and evergreen vegetation which creates a mediterranean and particularly reposeful atmosphere.
