IDSIA is located in this building, together with the Swiss Supercomputing Center CSCS and SUPSI. The address is IDSIA, Galleria 2, 6928 Manno (Lugano), Switzerland. (It is not any longer in Corso Elvezia 36!) From Airport Agno take a taxi (10 minutes, costs roughly SFR 20). From Airport Malpensa in Milano (Italy): take the bus to Lugano station (80 min), then go to IDSIA by bus or train or taxi (see below). From Airport Zurich: take the train to Lugano (goes once per hour, very nice 3 hour trip through the Alps). From the train station in Lugano: either take the bus from Piazza Besso (behind the station, leaves 9 min past every full hour, takes 20min, exit at Centro di Calcolo), or the little FLP train (leaves every 20 min, takes 8 min, exit at Bioggio Molinazzo, walk 15 min north, or take instead the infrequent bus to Centro di Calcolo), or a taxi (10 min, costs roughly SFR 25). By highway: coming from the north (Gottardo, Bernardino) exit at Lugano Nord, follow the signs to Ponte Tresa, you'll bridge the highway; turn left at the traffic light (turning right would lead you into Manno) and follow Via Cantonale for some 50 meters; turn left again at the gas station; follow the little road running in parallel to Via Cantonale until you come to our building. Take the main entrance from Via Cantonale, on the long side. We are on the second floor.
