Information related to CoVid-19: Events at HQ

The Federal Council has strengthened measures to contain the diffusion of the CoVid-19 in Switzerland. All non-essential marketplaces, entertainment activities and schools are now closed and all public/private events are banned. The Government also issued a strong recommendation to the population to stay at home and work remotely.

In addition to the Federal requirements, CECAM is legally bound to follow EPFL guidelines. At the moment, access to the EPFL campus is forbidden and all units are required to work remotely. You can find the latest information and prescriptions from EPFL here

The CECAM team at HQ continues to work remotely and all communication channels with the community are open as usual.

Given these rules, events at CECAM HQ scheduled until April 19th cannot take place as planned. We are working with the organisers to discuss postponement or means to hold the meeting remotely. Participants to all events (including those in May and beyond) are asked not to make travel reservations. The situation is evolving rapidly and will require reassessment for all events in the foreseeable future.

Organisers of events at HQ (beyond May):

You will be contacted three weeks before the planned date for the event with updates on the situation.

Please contact the event coordinator (aude.failletaz@epfl.ch)  if you wish to discuss options for the event, including postponement, or the possibility to have (total or partial) remote participation.

Should there be major developments at any time, we will inform organizers promptly.

Participant to events at HQs:

Individual information to participants will be managed by the organisers of your event.

Thank you for your collaboration and understanding in this crisis.
