4. ABOUT GENEVA
The conference will be held at CERN (the European Centre for Particle Physics), which is located on the outskirts of Geneva, Switzerland. By September next year, the downtown will be reachable by tram within about 30 minutes.
Geneva has a spectacular location: situated between lake and mountains, it offers all the advantages of a small city combined with the facilities and services usually found in much larger cities. Besides hosting the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, Geneva is an international meeting place for world leaders. The city, probably best-known throughout the world as the headquarters of the European seat of the United Nations and the International Red Cross, attracts thousands of people each year for meetings, conferences and exhibitions.
Geneva’s international airport is conveniently located 5 km (3 miles) from the city centre, the hub for flights from 70 destinations worldwide. Efficient ground transfers are available from the airport to the city centre and hotels.
