Travel and Accomodation

Travel and Accommodation 

We are delighted to welcome you here at CERN for the first edition of the Sparks! Serendipity Forum,  taking place from 16 to 18 September 2021. It is our pleasure to host you and cater for your needs during  your stay. However, as we are a public institution, we need to follow certain rules and limitations imposed  by the Organization.  


We are happy to reimburse your travel expenses (plane or train) up to a certain amount imposed by CERN,  against receipt. This limit corresponds to the average price of an economy flight from your location of  departure on 15/16 September until 19 September to and from Geneva.  

Additionally, we highly recommend that you purchase your ticket as soon as possible, choosing an  option with flexible cancelation policy.  

Please contact our logistics coordinator Marika Flygar ( when you are booking the  ticket, so she can provide you with the exact maximum amount of reimbursement.  

Please note that scanned copies of tickets and receipts should be sent to Marika after the event and within  6 months following the return date. 


Regardless of whether you are coming by plane or train, we will pick you up at the airport or train station  and bring you to the CERN facilities.  


We want to give all our speakers the authentic CERN experience and will arrange accommodation at the  CERN hotel inside our sprawling campus. The rooms are simple, but it will be the easiest and most  comfortable option for you.  


All meals will be provided and taken either on-site at the main CERN restaurant, or at downtown Geneva  locations. Please let Marika know about any dietary requirements.
