Conference venue 

The modern ETH Zurich Hönggerberg campus is located on the outskirts of the city of Zurich. It is a perfect example of the links between science, industry, and the general public. That is why it won the European Cultural Award for Science in 2010. The Hönggerberg campus offers plenty of room for further development. Not only are new buildings for research and education being built on the campus but also apartment blocks for students.
