The Institute of Economics (IdEP) at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) is delighted to host the 70th Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance in Lugano, Switzerland, on August 20 – 23, 2014.
The city presents an ideal blend of Mediterranean scenery and culinary delights with typical Swiss cleanliness, punctuality and efficiency. Hosting many banks and businesses and offering at the same time bucolic parks and interesting works of architecture and modern art, Lugano combines all the advantages of a world city with the charm of a small town. Besides its own airport, Lugano is easily reached via the city and airport of Milan as well as the airport of Zürich.
The conference is held on the Lugano campus of the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI), home to the faculties of economics, communication and informatics. The venue is conveniently located close to downtown and is easily accessible from most of the accommodation facilities in the area. Similarly, the venue is a stone throw away from a vast array of restaurants and the beautiful lake Lugano.
We look forward to welcoming you at the 70th Annual Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance in Lugano.
