Here is the program (click here for details)

Workshop venue

The workshop will take place on the Solbosch campus of the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), more precisely in salle Baugniet (S.01.326 ) of Building S, located at the following street address: 44, Avenue Jeanne, 1000 Brussels, Belgium.

For public transportation, Building S is most easily accessible from stations “Jeanne” (tramways 8 and 25, bus 71) and “Cambre-Étoile” (tramways 7 and 8)

You can use the main entrance to Building S from avenue Jeanne (not from the campus which is on the other side of the building). Salle Baugniet (S.01.326) is at the street level directly one the right.

Travel

  • Train: Brussels South station (“Gare du Midi” or “Zuidstation”) is well connected with direct high speed train connections to many European cities. It takes 30-40 minutes to reach the ULB Solbosch campus from Brussels South station by public transportation.
  • Air: The best option is to fly to Brussels airport (code BRU), which is connected by train to Brussels South and Central stations (20-30 minutes). Another option is to fly to Brussels South Charleroi airport (code CRL), which is mostly used by charter companies, but this requires to take a shuttle bus to Brussels South station (about one hour, with less frequent connections).

Conference dinner

The conference dinner will take place at restaurant “La Mirabelle”, located at the following address, at 12 min walking distance from the workshop venue.
454 Chaussée de Boondael, 1050 Brussels, Belgium

Hotels

Here are a few hotels that are relatively close to the campus (~20 minute walking distance or by public transportation), and are easily accessible by public transportation (20 to 30 minutes) from the main train stations (Brussels South or Central) and downtown Brussels:

Here are a few options if you prefer to stay in downtown Brussels, which is ~40 minutes from the campus by public transportation (note that these can be more expensive due to their location):
