    1 hour and 45 minutes driving from Zurich international airport to the conference hotel ( gures by google maps). Same driving time from Lugano (Agno) airport (but this is not a main international airport and there is no train directly from the airport, one has to get a taxi or a bus to the train station).

VISA & Travel Documents:

    Please note that there may be VISA restrictions since Switzerland in not part of EU. See here to determine if you need a Visa.

Electrical outlets in Switzerland:

    IMPORTANT: Switzerland apparently does not believe in standards, or at least not in non- Swiss standards. The electrical sockets therefore use the Type J plugs (also useful for Liechtenstein).
