    The conference will take place at the main campus of Paderborn University. The plenary talks take place in Building O, in the lecture halls O1 and O2, the sessions in the afternoon are held in Buildings O and A. The coffee breaks take place in Building O, in rooms O1.224 and O1.258.
    The registration takes place in the foyer O1 in Building O.

    How to get there

    It is possible to reach the campus from the city center by foot in roughly 30 minutes or alternatively by bus in about 15 minutes. Tickets can be purchased
  • on the bus (only cash)
  • at many busstations (including main station),
  • online at (creditcard payment).
  • The bus stops close to the campus are "Uni/Südring" and "Uni/Schöne Aussicht" and are indicated in the map below.

    Train stations and airports:
    The nearest train stations are Paderborn Hauptbahnhof (main station) and Paderborn Kasseler Tor (S-Bahn to/from Bielefeld). By air, Paderborn is served by Paderborn-Lippstadt (PAD, 20km, Bus), Hannover (HAJ, 130km, 2h10 direct S-Bahn) and Düsseldorf (DUS, 160km, 2h02 direct S-Bahn). Frankfurt Airport (FRA) is about 3 hours by train and requires at least one connection (in Kassel Wilhelmshöhe or Essen). Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS) is 4h30 by train with at least two connections.
