The campus of the University of Twente is located between the towns of Enschede and Hengelo, in the (non-administrative) region Twente in the east of the Netherlands, not far from the border to Germany.
The workshop will take place in the lecture hall WA3 of the building Waaier. The gallery on the first floor has been reserved for our poster presentation, and for coffee and lunch breaks.
All OWTNM-participants are cordially invited to the restaurant of the Hotel De Broeierd (Hengelosestraat 725, 7521 PA Enschede; phone: +31(0)53 850 6500) on Friday, April 19, at 19:00.
Although the most appropriate means of transport on and around the UT campus is clearly the bike, the conference venue is conveniently accessible by public as well as by private transport. If not travelling by car, you'll probably arrive by train at the main stations of either Enschede or Hengelo. From there you might wish to continue by regional train to Enschede Drienerlo, followed by a walk of about 10-15min to the University entrance. Alternatives (from Enschede or Hengelo main station) are a taxi (10min drive, approx. 17€), a shared taxi (treintaxi, a little longer waiting time; 4.90€/5.50€), or a bus.
Coming from the west, you'll probably arrive on the A1 motorway. Change to the A35 in the direction of Enschede, take the exit Enschede-West/Universiteit (no. 26), and follow the signs Universiteit. Coming from the east, the German A30 motorway continues as the Dutch A1. Take the exit Oldenzaal-Zuid/Enschede (no. 33), follow the signs to Enschede into the city center. Having reached the city ring (singel), follow the signs Universiteit. Navigate to Drienerlolaan 5, 7522 NB Enschede, The Netherlands (University entrance). There are a number of car parks on the campus, all free of charge.
To reach the campus from Enschede, use bus Line 1 (to University of Twente, exit at stop UT/Hallenweg; in the weekend and evenings exit at stop UT/Calslaan) and bus Line 9 (to Hengelo station, exit at stop UT/Kennispark). From Hengelo, use bus Line 9 (to Enschede station, exit at stop UT/Kennispark).
Access via eduroam will be available at the conference venue. UT guest accounts can be established upon request.
The climate in April in the Netherlands is usually predictably unpredictable with averaged minimum and maximum temperatures of 3oC and 14oC.
