The conference will take place in the Rolex Forum of the Rolex Learning Center.

Rolex Learning Center, Lausanne, Switzerland

Built on the campus of Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), The Rolex Learning Center functions as a laboratory for learning, a library and an international cultural hub for EPFL, open to both students and the public. Spread over one single fluid space of 20,000 sq meters, it provides a seamless network of services, libraries, information gathering, social spaces, spaces to study, restaurants, cafes and beautiful outdoor spaces. It is a highly innovative building, with gentle slopes and terraces, undulating around a series of internal ‘patios’, with almost invisible supports for its complex curving roof, which required completely new methods of construction. The building opened this year to the students and public on the 22nd of February and was inaugurated on May 27th, 2010. 

The Rolex Forum, an amphitheatre with a stage of 310m2 is a venue for up to 600 people, to be used for conferences, lectures, performances and other large scale events. A variety of catering outlets includes a self-service cafeteria and, at one of the summits of the building, a high quality restaurant with outstanding views of Lake Geneva and the Alps, all open to the public. Everybody, including those outside EPFL, can come to consult books or to work on the premises.
