The conference takes place during a busy period in the Ruhr Area (Essen is Europe’s capital of culture during 2010) and fairs take place during the week of the conference in Essen and Düsseldorf). We recommend early reservation.
Rooms have been reserved at the B&B Hotel in Oberhausen. There will be a shuttle service connecting the hotel with the conference venue. We have to release rooms that are not taken by September 15.
There seem to be no reasonably priced hotel rooms available in Essen at the time of the conference. The conference venue can be reached by tram from downtown Gelsenkirchen without switching trains (line 107, exit at "Viehofer Platz") or by subway from Gelsenkirchen Buer (line U11, exit at "Universität").
