Three options will be available for the excursion:

(i) Bus transportation to CERN, visit one of the experiments, bus transportation back. The capacity is limited, so it will be on a first come, first served basis. Note also that you should be prepared for some latency as only a small number of people can enter the experiment at a time, and the rest have to hang around on ground level.

(ii) Train transportation to the historic Chillon castle near Montreux, close to a strategic location where the river Rhone joins the Lake of Geneva. Visit of the castle, and a short walk on a hill-side nearby. Train transportation back to Lausanne, and the metro line m2 or a downhill stroll to Ouchy.

(iii) Walk (about 6km) from EPFL to Ouchy along the lake side, with a visit to the Olympic museum at the end.

The excursion is included in the conference fee (preferences are stated when registering).

The excursion is followed by a dinner on a boat, departing from Ouchy.
