Swiss PGDay 2018
Friday, June 29th, 2018
HSR University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil (Switzerland)
This day is all about PostgreSQL - the world's most advanced open source database.
Take the opportunity to meet with other people interested in PostgreSQL in Switzerland. Beside the talks we
offer the chance to network during the day and are pleased to invite you for a round of drinks after the meeting.
The event is suitable for everybody, from first-time users to experts and from clerks to decision-makers.
We stick to the proven one-day, two track conference concept but aim to offer this year a complete track in English
language beside the one in German to open the event to a broader audience. Speakers are requested to indicate the language
of their talk and may even apply for both tracks.
Do you have questions or suggestions? Please let us know by e-mail: email@example.com.
We are looking forward to this event!

The HSR (University of applied sciences for technology Rapperswil) is located directly at the upper Zurich lake shore with a view on the Alpine foothills (Map).
How to get there
The premises of the HSR are right besides the train station of Rapperswil (southern exit, look for the signs). We recommend you therefore to use the public transportation. It is possible, however, to reach the University by car.
- By train:
The ride from Zurich Main Station to Rapperswil takes about 30 minutes by train (S5/S15).
- By car:
The nearest public parking place is about 10 minutes walking from the HSR - See also the local parking directing system. The fees are very high. Unfortunately we can't offer fees reduction for the participants of the conference. On the campus there are only very few parking places for a maximum of 2 hours and very expensive as well. The best parking possibility is at the Children Zoo in Rapperswil, see PDF ("Südquartier, Lido": number 7 on the map).
The registration is in the cafeteria in building Nr. 1. There is also the place where we will spend the breaks.
Ease of access
The campus is accessible for wheelchairs.
