Gala event

The Gala event will take place at the MAD club in Lausanne on Wednesday, August 24.

Created in 1985, the MAD is a large club located in the Flon neighborhood at the heart of Lausanne. Come enjoy an original dinner, jazz concert, 'Luv Bug' disco show, DJ and more in this vibrant location, where you can explore its 5 floors, all with a different style and with different food.

Be mindful that this is mostly an enclosed space, in these post-Covid times we cannot bear any responsibility for the consequences that it might entail.


This event is included with your conference fee, but only participants who have registered separately for it will receive their personal ticket at the conference.

Registration for the gala event is now closed.

In case you missed the gala event registration, we have reserved a few additional tickets for conference attendees who still want to join: these will however be charged 50 CHF on site.


Tickets for accompanying persons can be purchased on site at the price of 95 CHF.


An ID card or passport is required by Swiss law in the club, and may be checked.

Participants must be at least 18 years old.

Drinks (alcohol-free, beer, wine) are free until 23:00, except for champagne and liquors which must be paid on site. After 23:00, the evening is open to the public and drinks are no longer free.


Take metro M1 from the EPFL metro stop to Lausanne-Flon. The club is about 300 m from this station.
