The AGSME workshop is being held in room ML E12 of ETH Zurich.

ML (the Machine Laboratory) is the building north of the main building of ETH Zurich where the AGS registration booth can be found. The AGSME workshop is open to the public. No registration is required to attend the workshop.

The workshop can be reached either by taking tramway #10 from the central railway station, getting off at the third stop (ETH / University Hospital), or using the Polybahn, by means of a short funicular ride, climbing up the hill from the Central square (3 minutes walking distance from the central railway station) to the main building of ETH Zurich.
