The workshop takes place in a seminar center next to the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science in Münster which is located at (Google Maps):

Einsteinstrasse 62
48149 Münster

The address of the seminar center itself is Orleansring 12, but the building is not yet visible on many maps since it is new. The conference takes place in room SRZ 217 on the second floor.


The University of Münster is located in Münster, Germany. (An alternative spelling of Münster is Muenster - note that this is different from Munster, Germany!)

The airport Münster-Osnabrück (FMO) is located 30 km from Münster. Shuttle service by bus to Münster central station is available (45 min). The international airport Düsseldorf (DUS) offers a variety of international flights. The train ride to Münster central station takes 90 minutes. Details about connecting trains are available at bahn.de.

Münster is well connected by train. For details see bahn.de.
