There are 1.500 additional rooms in Vevey/ Montreux and the rest within 30 min of transportation in between Lausanne and Geneva.
Stay with the locals
For WCSJ 2019, the local organizing committee wants all category of participants to be the most welcomed in Lausanne and in the Canton de Vaud region. The conference organizers will support low budget participants in helping organising their trip. In a format that has been tested during other conferences in the Lausanne region, a list of local and private accommodation provided by locals, especially Swiss Journalist residents or students/scientists from the EPFL, will be offered to the WCSJ 2019 participants that are looking for low cost rooming. A special tool to book will be provided on the WCSJ internet website.
Cost is expected to be no more that 50 CHF per night.
