Zurich is reached easily from the Zurich international airport (ZRH), by railway as well as by car. The main railway station is not far from the conference venue (20 min on foot) and is served by tram lines 6, 9 and 10. The funicular “Polybahn” leaves from the “Central” tram stop and is an easy way to reach the conference venue, which lies above the city. A 4-day (Monday to Thursday) ticket for the highly developed public transport system of the city is included in the registration fee. The ticket will be handed out to all registered participants and accompanying persons at the registration desk upon arrival.

A detailed set of directions from Zurich airport to the city and to the conference venue is available here as downloadable pdf.

Additional practical information is available here (this document will be updated in the weeks to come and a final version will be sent to all participants shortly before the conference starts).
