Switzerland has three international airports Zürich, Geneva and Basel-Mulhouse. The conference location is Interlaken, south-east of Bern. The airports in Zürich and Geneva have a built in train station, where intercity trains leave at least every hour in the direction of Bern and then from Bern to Interlaken (www.sbb.ch/en).
The trip takes from Zürich airport and from Geneva airport to Interlaken 2h15m and 2h45m, respectively (similar time by car). Interlaken has, despite the relatively small size, two train stations: Interlaken West (first stop) and Interlaken Ost (East, second and final stop). The conference site (Kursaal) is located almost exactly in the middle between the two stations, which are only 1.2 km apart from each other and connected by the street called “Höheweg” (Google Maps).
The address of the conference location is:

The climate in the beginning of August is very enjoyable in Interlaken with temperatures around 24°C during the day and around 15°C during the night and low humidity. We expect mostly blue sky and sunny days with a very low probability of rain fall or thunderstorms.
