The CIG symposia are organized at the University of Lausanne, in the Génopode building, where the Center for Integrative Genomics is located. The oral presentations take place in an auditorium that seats a little over 200 people, a size that still allows lively discussions at the end of each presentation. Standing lunches and a poster session are organized in the building hall to allow numerous exchanges among all participants, both junior and senior scientists.
