    Frequently Asked Questions

    Here you can find answers on frequently asked questions.



    FEMS and EPFL as organisers of the 13th FEMS Junior Euromat 2016 taking place on July 10 to 14, 2016 at EPFL, Lausanne Switzerland have been made aware that a number of scam service providers including companies calling themselves Exhibition Housing Management and Convention Hotel Services have been contacting people involved in 13th FEMS Junior Euromat 2016. These companies are not related to the organisers of the congress and we strongly advise you not to accept their services. They operate by calling the speakers and exhibitors offering cheaper accommodation or suggesting that the official hotels are full. They are also posing as the official housing agency and asking for credit card details in order to confirm bookings.

    The 13th FEMS Junior Euromat 2016 has not appointed any authorised booking agency and we strongly recommend you to book either directly at the hotels recommended by the Lausanne Tourist Office or by yourself via your preferred agencies.

    If you receive any calls from a company offering hotel rooms or other services related to the Congress please be aware that they may be scamming you.


    The listed hotels below have an allotment of a limited number of rooms/beds. Please contact them directly and mention „Junior Euromat 2016“.

    Accommodation at the Civil Shelter

    There is a limited number of places available at the Civil Shelter, which is in walking distance from the conference building. It is very basic, you will be accommodated with other participants coming from different nationalities (men and women all in one very large room). There is no day-light! Furthermore, you will have to bring your own bedclothes or sleeping bag. The shelter will be locked during the day as there is only one key available, and we will “appoint” someone to be in charge of it.

    Rates per person and per night : CHF 20,00.
