 Conference location:

The conference will take place at LILLIAD which is located on the Campus Cité Scientifique, Université de Lille. Please note that the Université de Lille is a fairly big University, split in several and very distant parts. Please make sure to go to the "Campus Cité Scientifique" part.


By Subway:

The subway in Lille is quite simple. If you are at the "Gare Lille Flandres" station, take the Line 1 (the yellow line) towards "4 Cantons Grand Stade" and leave at the "Cité Scientifique - Professeur Gabillard" station. Simply exit the station, turn to the left, follow the subway line, and you should quickly see the LILLIAD center in front of you.

You must buy the tickets at the vending machines. You will need to buy a refillable ticket (for 20 cents). A one way ticket is around 1.60euros. 


By Car:

We suggest you to use a GPS with "Cité scientifique, Université Lille". Please carefully check that your GPS is sending you to the "Campus Cité Scientifique" in the city "Villeneuve d'Ascq", and not in another part of the university.

There is a large parking at the "4 Cantons Grand Stade" subway station. If you stay at the Ascotel, they have a private parking. If you stay in Lille downtown, we suggest you to ask your hotel for information about parking your car in Lille (parking in Lille is not free).


By Train:

You will most likely arrive at either "Gare Lille Europe" or "Gare Lille Flandres" which are the two railway stations. If you arrive at "Gare Lille Europe", first take the subway line 2 (the red line) towards "St Philibert", and leave at the "Gare Lille Flandres" station. From there, follow the instructions above concerning the subway.

In Aachen the best way to reach any place of interest is by bus or by foot. The main shopping area, the Aachen Cathedral, and the RWTH are situated close beside each other.

In front of Aachen Central station there is a bus stop from which you can take a bus to your location in Aachen. The bus lines 3 and 13 are those you will probably need. They have a capital letter (A or B) behind the number, which refers to the direction of rotation. As the traffic network in Aachen's city center is constructed in rings, it does not matter in which direction you ride, but it may be a matter of time. Nevertheless you may possibly have to take a bus from across the road after leaving Aachen Central station.
