IMPORTANT: coronavirus epidemic Covid-19

The evolution of the CoVID-19 (coronavirus) epidemic and the measures taken by the authorities lead us to suspend all CUSO programs «real-life» activities for the entire spring semester. Each program will endeavour to reschedule planned activities at a later date, once the situation has subsided, but in any case not before August. Some activities may be offered online. Please check the websites of the various programs. Thank you for your collaboration and understanding.

Welcome to the Doctoral Program in Computer Science of the Universities of Fribourg, Geneva, Lausanne, Neuchâtel and Bern.


Computer science is an active field of research in western Switzerland. Thanks to the financial support offered from the Conférence Universitaire de Suisse Occidentale (CUSO), these five Universities decided to join their efforts and expertise to establish a new Doctoral Program in Computer Science.

The Doctoral Program in Computer Science aims to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge and scientific methods through seminars and workshops to which foreign experts will be invited. The doctoral program will also allow doctoral students to improve their aptitude for communication about their research, and offers a possibility to improve scientific English. Furthermore, the school encourages the doctoral students to acquire experience in the organization of their own scientific events (congress, seminars) and to establish networks of collaboration.
