The social evening (congress banquet) on Tuesday (June 20, from 7 pm) will take place on the premises of the Lake Side Zürichhorn, beautifully sited directly at the lakeshore and close to popular beaches of the city. We'll have a rich grill buffet both catering to veggies and carnivores alike and a well-equipped bar for refreshments of (hopefully) everyone's taste, including a selection of local wines. The Lake Side has also a large outdoor terrace to be even closer to the water.
Access to the social evening is included in the normal conference registration fee. Additional tickets for accompanying persons or tickets for day pass holders can be purchased at the registration desk (CHF 100.-) or online upon registration.

Getting to the Lake Side Zürichhorn
By foot: We recommend to get to the Lake Side by foot, as it's a very nice walk along the lake shore. Gather at the "Bellevue" square (→ map). Walk southwards for about 20 mins with the lake always at your right side along the narrow green stretch of "Quaianlagen" and the long-stretched "Zürichhorn" park until you reach the Lake Side which is, as its name says, directly by the lake. On your left you will pass by the popular "Pumpstation" takeaway/grill (if already hungry, grab a grilled Cervelat, "the" swiss national sausage), LeCorbusier House, and the China-Garden.
By tram: From "Central" (or from "Bellevue"), take Tram No 2 or 4 in direction "Tiefenbrunnen" and get off at the "Fröhlichstrasse" stop. Make your way on the Fröhlichtrasse towards the lake. Cross Bellerivestrasse at the traffic lights and you will end up at the Lake Side.
