Instructions for self-paying participants:

Kindly follow 3 STEPS to register (step 1) and book your accomodation (step 2) at Monte Verità hotel and conference center as well as apply for a selected talk or poster (step 3):


Step 1: Registration

  • Registration & payment of registration fee on the CSF online platform. Both must be done one right after the other with credit card only.
  • Early Bird Registration fee: CHF 450 inclusive of VAT (Fee includes attendance fee & abstract booklet & all meals).
    Note: Early Bird Registration fee will cover the cost of all meals for the first 32 registrants, first come, first served. An announcement will be placed on the website once the first 32 registrants are completed. After which registrants will have to pay a standard registration fee.

With this code you start the following "Step 2" to book and pay for your bedroom at the hotel and conference centre Monte Verità (reduced prizes available only to participants of CSF meetings).
  • Participants registration closes on May 15, 2024 (prolonged).

Step 2: Accomodation

  • Booking of accomodation (breakfast is included) at Hotel Monte Verità for 5 nights from June 23 (arriving) to June 28 (departing) with your "event code" (you have received it upon registration):
  • Note: Please do not book any meals - the costs have already been included in the registration fee.
  • Room rates range from CHF 42 * to  CHF 132 * per night, including  breakfasts. The hotel offers single rooms, some of them with a shared bathrom (one bathroom for two rooms), and mostly double rooms with two separate beds, as well as an entire house for 4 persons (264 *.- CHF per night) * The tourist tax of CHF 3.40 is added to the room price for each overnight stay.
  • Please note that the number of single rooms at the conference site hotel is limited; if you require a single room, we recommend you book one asap. Sharing a bedroom with another participant of the conference will increase the chances of finding an available room at the conference site hotel. If you have a suggestion for the room sharing, you can indicate a name at the time of booking.
  • It is recommended to book the preferred room as soon as possible, but latest 15 days prior to arrival. On-site booking and payment of bedrooms cannot be accepted.
  • If you cannot reserve a room at the hotel Monte Verità or if you prefer to arrange your accomodation outside Monte Verità, you will still have to take your meals at the conference venue restaurant. Participants booked in one of the nearby hotels will have a free transport provided to and from the conference site in the morning after breakfast and in the evening after dinner. Daily schedules of this transport will be available at the external hotel and at the conference venue. Breakfast will be served at your hotel, whereas all the other meals will be served at the conference venue restaurant.

  • Any pre- or post conference nights at the hotel do not profit from the reduced price and have to be discussed directly with the hotel and conference centre Monte Verità. Accompanying persons staying at the Hotel Monte Verità do not profit from the reduced prices. If you wish to book a pre- and/or post-night, please contact the Hotel Reception Monte Verità directly (
