Bielefeld is very easily reachable by train, as it is situated on the Berlin - Hannover - Dortmund - Düsseldorf - Cologne ICE train line. The best connected Airport is Düsseldorf Airport, but all other airports on the train line work as well.

The conference venue is located on the northern university campus, approx 5km outside the city center of Bielefeld. We recommend to look for accomodations within the city centre or towards the northwest of the city. From the inner city the venue can be reached easily and quickly by tram.

More detailled information will be posted later.
