All participants will be accommodated in the Monte Verità conference center located on the hills above Ascona and the Lake Maggiore.

The rooms are comfortable and all have private bath. The Monte Verità conference centre has a campus-like structure, comprising a hotel, conference halls, restaurant and park. All of this is imbued with the fascinating legacy of a significant chapter in European 20th century cultural history, that of the Monte Verità vegetarian colony.

We only have a certain limited number of rooms at our disposal and therefore urge you to fill out the online-registration form as soon as possible.
