LUNCH@LAB

Participants attending the WCSJ2019 in Lausanne have the unique opportunity to visit labs of EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), UNIL (University of Lausanne) and CHUV (Lausanne’s University hospital) during the conference, taking part in Lunch@Labs. Thanks to the large concentration of high-level research within a small area, these visits can take place during the lunch breaks. In total, over 50 different labs and presentations are available to choose from, each for groups of 8-10 people. Lunch@Labs sessions will take place on the three main days of the WCSJ2019, Tuesday, July 2 to Thursday, July 4. Journalists will have the chance to harvest a vast range of potential stories, providing a strong argument for their media outlets to fund their attendance.

 

Attendance at the Lunch@Labs is free of charge, but registration on the WCSJ2019 website is mandatory for organizational reasons. Packed lunches will be provided.

On the three main days of the conference (Tuesday, July 2 to Thursday, July 4), the labs of EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), UNIL (University of Lausanne) and CHUV (Lausanne’s University hospital) will open their doors during lunch break and showcase their high-level research activities. These visits are on registration only. Lunch-bags will be provided.

 

Where to meet: Registered participants meet each day on the Esplanade in front of the conference center (on your right when leaving the building through the main entrance). Please check out the different departure times. If you’re late, you’ll lose your place.

When to meet: 

11:25 (right after the morning sessions) for all those going to a Lunch@Lab at CHUV (LL 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10). The CHUV visits leave at 11:40.

For the UNIL Lunch@Labs (LL 6, LL12 to LL16) and LL 11 (SIB): check in at the UNIL station starts at 11h20. Departure 12:25

For the EPFL Lunch@Labs (LL17 to LL55): check in at the EPFL station starts at 11h50. Departure 12:25

 

How to make changes: Please inform the registration desk (Entrance hall, Garden level) if you need to cancel your participation in a Lunch@Lab – there might be other conference delegates interested in this visit. Those who are not registered can check with the registration desk if there are free places from 9-11 each day.
