The 2019 IC Research Day

Digital Trust

Trust is indispensable to the prosperity and well-being of societies. For millennia, we developed trust-building mechanisms to facilitate interactions. But as they become increasingly digital, many traditional mechanisms no longer function well, hence trust breaks down.

As a result, low levels of trust discourage us from engaging in new forms of interactions and constrain business opportunities.

We must therefore re-invent trust mechanisms that will contribute to prosperous societies in the digital age.

The EPFL School of Computer and Communication Sciences (IC) had world-leading experts present at this year's IC Research Day to discuss their work toward achieving these goals. EPFL researchers also showcased ongoing research projects and demos.

Arriving by public transportation is probably the best way to get around in Lausanne. The metro M1 brings you directly to the SwissTech Convention Center from Renens train station or Lausanne City center. The metro arrives every five minutes and it only takes 15 minutes to get there from Lausanne City center.

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

The Conference Center has its own underground paid parking lot "Parking les Arcades". For more information, visit parking.epfl.ch.
