I guess I'll start with the a few questions/suggestions I think the
Swiss team maybe should think about:
the Swiss bid has three pages: one with general information, one with
the priorityList answer and the last one with the answer to the check-list.
Now I setup a note at the beginning of the page, to make easier to find
the two other pages.
1. I realize that it's mostly ground (one or two floors) based
buildings, but since it's not a city, what are the conditions
(accommodation, moving around) for people with special needs (eg.
people in wheelchairs and people with other kinds of disabilities)?
Most of the houses are handicapped-friendly, including bathrooms/toilets
and elevators. They have a camp with handicapped people every year.
There are normal or wheelchair-specific elevators in many places,
including around all the planned conference room and many of the
hosting bungalows. Although not all houses are wheelchair accessible (No
4-6) are not. We'll make sure that there are no conference rooms (talks,
official meeting rooms, ...) not accessible by wheelchair.
2. You mentioned that the Venue might be too small.
I couldn't find any info about how much persons could actually be
accommodated at the Venue (both rooms and conference facilities).After
a bit of looking around the website you provided I managed to find
some more info about it BUT only because I know German! Not everybody
understands French or German :D. It would be nice if you put some more
details about it on the wiki!
325 is the maximum number of beds available. There is another facility
with 120 places, La Rouvraie, Bellevue-sur-Bevaix, at a 10-minute-car
We also talked about the limited number of beds to the caretaker of the
camp and he told us that if we need more beds it would also
possible to put up some tents for sleeping.
3. More info on the Network connection would be wise before the final
I let other organizers to talk about this.
