The Future of Software

Unlike a decade ago, now software is everywhere and everything. What will software be like a decade from now? Will it deliver on the promise of replacing monotonous human work? Will we be able to depend on software doing the right thing, being always available to answer our questions, and malleable enough to quickly adapt to new needs? After tremendous theoretical and engineering breakthroughs over the last decade, we contend that the answer is yes.

At the 2018 IC Research Day, world-leading experts presented and discussed their work toward achieving these goals. EPFL researchers showcased ongoing research projects and engaged with the audience.

Arriving by public transportation is probably the best way to get around in Lausanne. The metro M1 can bring you directly to the SwissTech Convention Center from the Renens train station or the city center of Lausanne. The metro comes every 5 minutes and it will only take you 10 minutes to get here.

Arriving by car the SwissTech Convention Center, which is 10 minutes away from the highway exit; “Lausanne Sud, UNIL-EPFL”.

Parking Rivier is one of the best options, just across the street from STCC. The Conference Center has its own underground paid parking lot: Parking les Arcades. If you want more information about parking, visit parking.epfl.ch.
