Venue and location

The 14th International Conference on Pseudomonas will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland’s fourth city and the capital of the Vaud canton.

Lausanne has the distinction of being an Olympic city with a history of tradition and strong training and cultural assets. A highly popular tourist destination, noted for its varied cultural activities, Lausanne is also host to a number of international companies. Its economic affluence and quality of life make Lausanne a very desirable place to be. We are sure that you will enjoy your stay in Lausanne and we encourage you to take a few days before or after the conference to visit other places in Switzerland as well.

The conference venue is located at the University of Lausanne (UNIL), in an exceptionally green and spacious lakeside setting with a very special view of the alps. An excellent public transport network links Lausanne to the university campus.

The address is: Anthropole building, UNIL-Dorigny, 1015 Lausanne
