The details concerning the event venue will be posted in the beginning of 2020.
Workshop: ETH Zürich, Zentrum
Where to eat
There are several canteens (and, contrary to popular belief, affordable eateries) in the both of the university campuses and in the city centre. Here are some suggestions.
Where to stay
See here a list of hostels and other accommodation options in Zurich. Check also airbnb. Something else that works surprisingly often is to ask if there are any free rooms for the week on facebook groups like this one. You are very welcome to coordinate with other attendees. From there, emergent self-organization is very much encouraged!
Useful mobile apps
SBB public transport app: allows you to buy tickets and check timetables for all types of Swiss transport.
ETH mobile app: latest ETH news, the map of the campus and canteens’ menus.
What to bring
Swimwear, sunscreen, towel, picnic blanket: you can swim in the river and lake in summer. It may be useful to bring a small lock (as there are public lockers to keep your belongings), otherwise you can rent one.
Writing material: We will provide notepads and pens. The talks will be recorded. We will upload the lecture notes or slides whenever they are available, so a laptop may be useful.
Id: You can rent public bikes for free in the city by leaving some form of official id. Lime scooters are also a good option.
Juggling balls, drums, shadow puppets: Or whatever it is that folks from all walks of life do for fun at dinners and picnics these days.
