This post contains some practical information concerning the conference. If you have any questions that are not addressed here, please let us know.
University & accommodation
The conference takes place in the main building (De Boelelaan 1105) of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. The university is located in the south of the city, just outside the ring road. The public transportation in Amsterdam works fine, and there aren’t really any accommodations at walking distance from the university, so if you intend to stay over in Amsterdam, it doesn’t matter so much where you book. Some useful pages:
