All scientific presentations, the opening and the closing ceremony
will be held in the Main Building (Hoofdgebouw) of the Vrije
Universiteit, De Boelelaan 1105, Amsterdam, The Netherlands,
tel. +31(0)20-4445793, +31(0)20-5485794, fax +31(0)20-4445825
On Sunday, July 10, the registration and 'Get Together' reception will

The nearest international airport is Amsterdam Airport "Schiphol".
Many airlines fly directly from most countries to Amsterdam. At the
airport, a congress information desk will be open from Friday, July 8,
until Monday, July 11, 12:00 noon. This desk will be located in the
Arrival Hall of Terminal West. At the desk, information can be
obtained, among others, on traveling to down-town Amsterdam and to the
Vrije Universiteit, the location of your hotel and public transport.
The railway station at Schiphol gives access to an extensive railroad
network. The railways station closest to the Vrije Universiteit is
"Amsterdam Zuid WTC", 6 minutes from Schiphol, trains are departing
every 15 minutes from Schiphol. Amsterdam Central Station ("Amsterdam
CS") is 17 minutes from Schiphol, trains are departing every 15
minutes.
At Amsterdam CS, trains from continental Europe arrive. Public
transport (Metro line 51) will take approximately 20 minutes to get to
the Vrije Universiteit, Metro-station "De Boelelaan".
Tickets and information on public transport are available at an office
just outside the main building of the railway station of Amsterdam CS.
At the congress registration desk, one- to six-day tickets for the
Amsterdam public transport will be sold at reduced rates (not valid
for railroad travel).
The Vrije Universiteit is directly accessible from the A10 motor way,
which connects to the A1, A2 and A4 motor ways.

The registration desk will be open throughout the congress, on Sunday
July 10 from 13:00 hour until 18:30 hour at the Sports Center
University of Amsterdam (see above), on Monday, July 11, 7:30 hour
until Friday, July 15, 16:15 hour at the Main Building of the Vrije
Universiteit (see above).
