Palais des Congrès - Conference Centre

You will find the registration desk and usual facilities when entering the Palais des Congrès. (Use entrance stairs to the upper level.) Please do not hesitate to contact any member of the local organiser team if in doubt. You recognise them easily from their badge. Once you got your conference documents, please wear your badge throughout the whole conference and also at the outside venues for welcome cocktail and conference dinner.

All meeting rooms used by DIS 2013 can all be reached in less than a minute from the building entrance. The large auditorium (Monday, Friday) is located in the annex building, whereas the parallel meeting rooms (Tuesday to Thursday) are located on the two floors in the same building as the registration desk.

Please note that there will be no power plugs in the Auditorium so it will be impossible to charge your laptop during the plenary sessions. The parallel session rooms will be equipped with a limited number of power plugs and a charging table will be installed in each room.
