advantages of a world-class city, combined with the cachet of a small 
town. The Ceresio lake has numerous activities to offer to sports 
lovers, to those wanting to visit corners that are unreachable by land 
or simply who want to discover enchanting spots or get a taste of the 
excellent seafood that is served in the various restaurants and grottos 
situated along its shores. Mountain enthusiast will also find plenty of 
routes and excursions to explore the beautiful landscape of the region.

Lugano is conveniently located in the center of Europe. In addition to 
the proximity with a major international airport (MXP), Lugano also 
features its own small airport (LUG) with frequent connections to three 
major European hubs (ZRH, GVA, FCO).

The Faculty of Informatics at the University of Lugano (USI) was founded 
in 2004 and stands out as a centre of excellence in software and service 
engineering research. In a matter of very few years, it has become one 
of Switzerland’s major poles for teaching and research, hosting 22 
faculty members and more than one hundred Post-doctoral and Pre-doctoral 
researchers. The Faculty aims to train informatics experts that are 
interdisciplinary in approach, with abstract thinking and problem 
solving skills, a sound knowledge in the application fields of 
information technologies, as well as teamwork, interpersonal
