Conference Venue

The conference will be held at:

International Conference Centre Geneva (CICG)

17 Rue de Varembé
CH-1202 Genève

The conference premises are ISO certified and the CICG is strongly committed to sustainable development and environmental protection (see environmental charter). The CICG also relies on solar energy in a drive to reduce carbon emissions. In addition, the CICG signed a contract in 2010 to take part in the innovative “Genève-Lac-Nations” project, which will link the conference center to deep lake water and thus cool the building without using electricity. More information on the project is available here.
