Registration / Transportation / Weather

We will ask registration for both attendance in person and remote participation, we will send a message to the polardata mailing list when registration opens.

Transportation

WMO is located next to station Geneva-Sechèron (this is NOT the main station). From Geneva Airport (GVA) it takes a couple of minutes by taxi/uber, or around half an hour by either bus or train to get to WMO or the center of Geneva. More information on public transport is available on https://www.gva.ch/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-67/. In the bagage hall of Geneva Airport are machines where you can get a free 80 minute ticket for public transport.

Geneva is also well reachable by train from several directions allowing flights to other airports as well or full train rides to Geneva.
