DH2014 – Travel and Location Change (EPFL to UNIL)

As many of you are already in Lausanne and have been attending workshops the last couple of days, the move to UNIL’s campus for the final three days of the conference is an easy on: one more stop on the Metro M1 from Renens Gare (or about a five minute walk down the road). The M1 stop for the Amphimax is called UNIL-Sorge. For everyone else, here are the details that should help guide your way.

1. Getting to Lausanne and to UNIL (Amphimax Building)

All of the information you will need to help guide you to the campus via public transportation can be found here. In addition, the exact schedule for Monday morning’s trains, including track numbers and detailed travel times, can be found by clicking here. Finding the registration desk at the Amphimax shouldn’t be too difficult. When leaving the metro, a parking lot and the Amphimax building will be right in front of you. Climb the stairs on the righthand side of the building (when you’re facing the lake), and you will find the entrance at the top.

2. Breaks and Lunches

During the final three days of DH2014 at the Amphimax and Amphipôle buildings, July 9th, 10th and 11th, drinks and snacks will be provided during between session breaks in the “coffee break area,” which will be shown on maps that you will receive. There will be one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Lunch will not be provided, but there are two main dining options for you:

The cafeteria in Amphimax (in French)

The cafeteria in Unithèque (in French)

The capacity of the Amphimax cafeteria is limited and will not be able to accommodate all conference participants. It is recommended that you proceed to Unithèque during your lunches, as it is only a five minute walk away and contains much more capacity and dining options.
