Conference Venue

The conference will be held on the campus of the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg in the north-west of Heidelberg. All street addresses on the campus are Im Neuenheimer Feld, INF for short, and usually building INF xyz has the number xyz written on it.

Registration, plenary talks, tutorials, some special session talks, and the conference bureau are located in the Physics Lecture Theatre INF 308, a not so high blue building adjacent to a small pond. Parallel sessions are in the Mathematical Institute INF 288 on the other side of the pond.
To reach the conference site by bus or tram, go to the stop Bunsengymnasium, which is highlighted on the map. Then walk perpendicular to the tram tracks and away from the gas station, passing parking lots first on both sides and then to the left only. About 200 meters away from the tram station, you reach the large central square of the campus with a pavement that shows the solar system as concentric circles. A few meters of the square to your right you see the Physics Lecture Theatre INF 308 and the Mathematical Institute INF 288.
