The NO-building, the ITS and the main building of the ETH are close to the main station of Zürich (about 10 minutes walking).

How to get to Zürich

Zürich main station is well connected and easy to reach from many parts of Europe.

The closest airport is Zurich Ariport (ZRH). Under certain circumstances, it could be convenient to fly to other airports (e.g. Munich, Frankfurt, Paris).

There is a good train connection from the airport to the mainstation. This is operated by many different lines (e.g. S 2, S 16, S 24, several IC- or IR-lines). You should easily find the train station at the airport and there are signs indicating where the next trains are going.
You should buy the ticket before boarding the train. To purchase a ticket for the train from the airport to the main station, you can either use one of the vending machines (type Zürich HB as destination and purchase a one way ticket) or you can use the ZVV ticket app.
A one way ticket costs 6,80 CHF and permits you to choose any sort of train.


There are some offices and a common room in the ITS at our disposal, which we can freely use for discussions.


The ETH offers a variety of different student restaurants (the closest ones from our lecture hall would be: Clausiusbar, food&lab, and Tannenbar).

In addition there are some restaurants along Weinbergstrasse (ca. 2-5 minutes) and a large variety of restaurants along Niederdorfstrasse (ca. 10-20 minutes).

Free afternoon

There will be three outings suggested for the free afternoon (for now, the ideas are a boat trip on the lake, a small hike on the Uetliberg, or an afternoon in the art museum "Kunsthaus"). Please note that every participant needs to pay for themselves.

Conference dinner

The conference dinner will take place on Tuesday 4th of June at 19:00h at the Restaurant Glockenhof (Sihlstrasse 31, 8001 Zürich).


Zürich offers a variety of places where it is free to take a bath. If you enjoy swimming, it might be worth to bring swimmwear.
