EDIC Open House

Preliminary Schedule

Times are in Central European Standard Time

Thursday, March 25, 2021 ¦ Friday, March 26, 2021

Welcome to EPFL!

On behalf of the Doctoral Program in Computer and Communication Sciences at EPFL, congratulations!

Our Virtual Open House for admitted EDIC fellowship students will run for two days, from Thursday, March 25 to Friday, March 26, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Open House will be virtual this year – but you should certainly navigate this interactive portal to explore some of the most beautiful sites in our region (start your tour by clicking on Lausanne)!

We will have a large number of short talks and group events, as well as plenty of opportunities for one-on-one meetings with IC faculty and students. These meetings are a great opportunity for you to learn more about the research we do, as well as ask all the questions you have about PhD student life at EPFL and in Lausanne. Most events (except for one-on-one meetings) will be live-streamed and recorded for future viewing.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Prof. Michael Kapralov, EDIC Open House Chair
