General information

The ESC doctoral program brings together PhD students of the School of Criminal Justice (École des Sciences Criminelles – ESC, University of Lausanne) as well as any PhD student from a university delivering a PhD in forensic science or criminology. The aim of the program is to allow PhD students to develop their network as well as generic cross-disciplinary skills for successfully conducting their PhD research, but also to prepare them to their professional career. This objective is achieved by offering specialized workshops and activities, at the University campus as well as in the frame of a summer school in the Swiss Alps. The proposed activities promote the active participation of the PhD students, for example by allowing them to present their work through lectures and posters sessions.


All the participants will be staying at the Eurotel Victoria, where the event takes place. This 4-star-superior Hotel, located in the middle of the Vaud Alps will offer you a cosy ambiance in and around the hotel in the charming mountain village Les Diablerets. For more information, please check the Accomodation tab of this webpage.


Abstracts should be send before 5 PM (CET) on 28th of July, 2017. Participants are asked to send their abstracts either through the online application form, or by email if they wish to submit it in a second stage.


Costs vary according to room accommodation: CHF 800.00 for a single room, CHF 650.00 for a double room and CHF 600.00 for a triple room. More information can be found here, under the Fees tab.
