Conference Venue: Universität Duisburg-Essen, Campus Essen, R12, Universitätsstr. 12, 45141 Essen
Room: R12 R04 B02
We are looking forward to welcoming you at our Essen campus of UDE. The hosts' offices as well as our meeting room on campus (R12 R04 B02) are in the red building at Universitätsstraße 12.
Your preferred tram/underground stop is Rheinischer Platz, which is located right below this map on the lower right hand corner (It is included on the full campus map). From there, please follow Gladbecker Straße straight to our building.
If you are staying at the conference hotel or other hotels in downtown Essen:
You may also want to consider walking to the university (1km/0.6 mile from the conference hotel): just follow the main pedestrian street Kettwiger Straße to the North to Rheinischer Platz, continue straight through the tram station or across the traffic lights and follow Gladbecker Straße until you reach our building, R12. Our building is located on your left hand side. In total, it is a 10-15min walk from the main train station Essen Hbf / Hauptbahnhof (2 underground tram stops, 1.5 km/1 mile) and a 5-10 min walk (1 underground tram stop, 1km/0.6 mile) from the conference hotel (underground tram stop: Rathaus).
If you prefer using a bike:
There are bike rentals e.g. at the main train station (e.g. Radstation or metropolrad ruhr) or at different locations (e.g. metropolrad ruhr) throughout Essen, including our campus. Please bear in mind though that cycling along the pedestrian street can be difficult during times of higher pedestrian density (between later mornings and evenings).
Finding the room inside R12:
Inside the red building R12 (the entrance can be found in the corner between the cafeteria Cafe Rosso on your right and a large meeting room with many windows ("glas pavillon") on your left), please take any stairs or the blue or green elevator to the fourth floor. The room can be found in the hallway with the red door between the blue and red elevator, labelled "B," and the room is located on your right. We will put up signs for your orientation as well.
