There is no registration fee.

Meals and Accommodation

All in-person participants are requested to book their meals (lunch, dinner) with the conference center. This amounts to CHF 135 for the duration of the conference. Furthermore, the conference center offers on-site accommodation including breakfast at a special rate to conference participants (only Sun–Fri):

room daily rate
one bed in a shared double room CHF 80.30
double room for single use CHF 135.30
double room including accompanying person CHF 188.60

Meals and accommodation can be paid by Mastercard or Visa.

Note that in order to book rooms at the reduced rates, you will need a conference code which you will receive upon registration (see below) along with further information on the booking process. We urge you to book accommodation well in advance because the rooms will also be available to tourists.

In case you are looking for a partner to share a double room with, we will be glad to offer assistance. Please indicate your wish in the registration interface.

If you plan to bring an accompanying person not attending the conference, please get in touch with us. Please note that accompanying persons are not eligible for reduced rates for accommodation or meals (unfortunately, the booking system applies the reduced rate to meals for accompanying persons, consequently we will have to charge the difference separately).

Alternatively, you can find a variety of hotels in downtown Ascona or Locarno. Please note that the conference center is located on top of a hill (120m, 397–538 steps). It is connected to downtown Ascona by a scenic walk (20 min) as well as an infrequent bus route. Please also note that it is mandatory to book the conference meals (lunch and dinner) with the conference center even if you stay elsewhere.


Registration is closed.

Please register until 15 September.


The registration process is baroque, but you will be rewarded with beautiful views of Lago Maggiore and the Alps (weather permitting):

If you experience difficulty with fail at some point of the registration, please contact us.
