Accomodation and Travel


All participants will be accommodated in the Hotel Laudinella*** located in St. Moritz Bad close to the 'Signal' funicular for direct access to the Corviglia-Marguns skiing area. The rooms are comfortable and all have private bath. The hotel has all modern services including six different restaurants.

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.

If possible please indicate with whom you would like to share your room. 

If you plan to extend your stay before or after the conference, rooms can be directly booked at the hotel. Consider, however, that availability directly after the conference will be limited due to the Engadin ski marathon taking place on Sunday March 12.


Zurich International Airport is located 200 km north of St. Moritz. From there, continuation to St. Moritz is recommended by train.



St. Moritz is most easily reached by train. From Zurich, St. Moritz is reached hourly within 3h 20min. Take the train of the Swiss Federal Railway (SBB) to Chur and from there the Raethian Railway (RhB) to St. Moritz. Choosing the connection via Chur (instead of the slightly faster connection via Landquart) brings you over the Albula pass, which is famous for its fantastic railway viaducts and mountain views (UNESCO world heritage since 2008). You can buy a single ticket for both trains. An easy planning of the journey and ticket information is accessible here:

Take bus no. 9 direction "St. Moritz Bad, Youth hostel" and get off at the stop "St. Moritz Bad, Post". You will find the Hotel Laudinella just across the street. Or call Hotel Laudinella (+41 81 836 00 00) and they will send their hotel shuttle to pick you up at the station.

Car (not recommended)
St. Moritz can only be reached by crossing a pass (depending on snow conditions 4 wheel drive or chains are mandatory) unless you choose to board your car on a train in Thusis or Klosters Selfranga. The Fluela pass is closed in winter.
