The ANNUAL PHD RETREAT, organized by a team of students, is held in a luxurious hotel set in one of the many beautiful locals in the vicinity of Geneva.
The current retreat will be held in Montreux from 18 to 20 January, 2016.
Although the format changes from year to year, generally all students attend and present either a poster describing their projects or a short talk. Invited external keynote speakers also give talks. Awards for the best poster, the best talk (the Laemmli prize) and the best group leader are awarded.
