Venue & The city of Delft

The conference will be organized at the TUDelft Aula Conference Center, a state of the art conference center within the TUDelft campus.

Delft is one of the oldest cities in The Netherlands, which was already established as early as 1246. Delft is nicknamed 'de Prinsenstad' (the Prince's City, http://lensonleeuwenhoek.net/content/delft-princes-city), because William of Orange, the first in the Dutch royal line, held court in Delft in the 16th century. Other famous historical figures who once lived and worked in Delft are the painter Johannes Vermeer, the inventor of the microscope Anthonie van Leeuwenhoek, and the first Nobel Prize winner in chemistry Jacobus van 't Hoff.

The city has a beautiful, well-preserved, lively historical center, with characteristic canals, ancient merchant houses, old churches and the splendid city hall, making it valued by tourists throughout the year. Visitors can choose from a variety of good-quality accommodations. TU Delft is the university of the first Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, Jacobus van 't Hoff, and one of the leading research universities in engineering science & technology in Europe and in the world. Established 1842 by King Willem II, TU Delft has a rich tradition reaching back more than 160 years. With over 20,000 students and a research staff of almost 3,000, it currently is the largest and most diverse university of technology in The Netherlands.

The Netherlands is easily accessible by airplane from all parts of the World. Schiphol International Airport (www.schiphol.nl) is one of central hubs for intercontinental as well as for European flights. It is easy to travel from Schiphol to Delft by public transportation e.g. Schiphol Travel Taxi and per train (www.ns.nl). A direct connection by train takes you within one hour from Schiphol to Delft. In case you are willing to change trains, it will take you only 40 minutes to reach the city of Delft. In total approx. 7 trains leave Schiphol for Delft within the hour. In addition to Schiphol International Airport, Delft has a second airport in its surroundings: Rotterdam-The Hague Airport (www.rotterdam-airport.nl). This airport is aiming at the European destinations. This airport is only 15 minutes (12 kilometers) from the centre of Delft by taxi. The Netherlands is also easily reachable from most of Europe via high-speed trains, e.g. Thalys from Paris via Belgium or ICE from Germany.

Within Delft a wide range of public transportation services is available. The city centre is very compact (http://www.delft.nl/delften/Tourists/Discover_Delft).
