The CIG symposia are organized at the University of Lausanne, in the Génopode building, where the Centre 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.

The participation fees are kept to a minimum to favor the participation of all, in particular junior scientists. The number of participants increased steadily over the years, from 140 to 240 in 2012. The majority of the participants are junior scientists at the PhD or postdoc level.
