You can take buses 604, 605 from the stop "Stadthaus" near the Hotel Europa (travel time about 15 min), buses 604-607 from the main station, or simply a taxi. Hotels Esplanade and Mozart are also indicated on the map and are closer to the venue.

WLAN/Computers
All participants will receive information via e-mail on how to log on to the WLAN in the Mathematics Center. If you encounter problems with the installation, assistance will be available on-site at Registration (6 September). Furthermore there are computer terminals with internet access available in the library (ground floor) of the Mathematics Center.

Library
Feel free to use the mathematics library in the building (ground floor). It contains the largest collection of maths books and journals.

Lunch
The lunch break has been scheduled to allow plenty of time.
One possibility is the University Mensa (cafeteria) at Endenicher Allee 19, just down the street from the Workshop venue. Take note: it closes around 2 p.m. Many cafes, restaurants, bakeries and grocers are located on Clemens-August-Street in Poppelsdorf, the student district. See map.
Buses into the city center: from the bus stop across the street from the venue (Kaufmannstraße) to the main central station, buses 604, 605, 606, 607. The ride takes 6 minutes.
