  • Abstracts will only be considered for acceptance when the registration fee has paid in by the author.
  • The nearest Hotels to SUPSI are Hotel Milano and Hotel Coronado, but since SUPSI is adjacent to the train station you can also easily stay in other cities or towns and get to the venue by regional train (https://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html).
  • B&B are also existing near the lake in a nearby town (B&B Chery in Riva San Vitale much used by students), but more can be found on Booking or Airbnb.
  • For the same reason SUPSI is easily accessible from Malpensa airport (https://www.sbb.ch/en/home.html). From here the regional train leaves and stops in front of the SUPSI (about 1 hour ride).
  • Electric bicycles can also be easily rented within the region, which can make travel easier (https://www.publibike.ch/en/publibike).

 

 

-Mind that travelers might have to be in possession of a vaccination pass or a negative Sars-Cov-19 virus test depending on the pandemic situation and local restrictions if any-
