The usual way to get to the Netherlands is to fly into Schiphol Airport near Amsterdam. From there Eindhoven can be reached by train.
Eindhoven has a small international airport, with connections to Amsterdam, London Heathrow, London Stansted, Manchester, Brussels, Birmingham, Paris, Hamburg and Zurich. The airport is about a 10 minute taxi drive from the city centre. You can check flights and connections at: www.eindhovenairport.nl and www.klm-exel.nl
Eindhoven is part of the intercity network of the Dutch railways and has direct rail connections with Amsterdam, Den Haag, Rotterdam, Heerlen and Maastricht.
To get to Eindhoven from Schiphol Airport, you take a train from the airport to station Duivendrecht. At Duivendrecht station, you change to a direct train to Eindhoven Central Station. The journey from Schiphol to Eindhoven takes 1.5 hours. You can plan your train trip through the Netherlands using an on-line routeplanner provided by the dutch railways on their English webpage: www.ns.nl/domestic/.
Eindhoven is situated at the junction of A2 and A67 motorways, as you can see on the schematic map of the city.
The Technische Universiteit Eindhoven campus is situated in the centre of Eindhoven. The Auditorium building, marked "AUD" on the campus map, is the venue of ICALP2003. The compact green campus, not only has university buildings, but sports facilities too, as well as a student centre. Most buildings are connected via walkways. Because of this, the TU/e is one of the most easily accessible universities for the handicapped.
On foot The university campus is only a few minutes walk from Eindhoven Central Station. After arriving at the station, take the stairs down from the platform and turn to your right. Exit the station on the north side. Walk past the buss station to the main road. Take a right and walk along the main road to a crossing with traffic lights. The entrance to the campus is on the opposite side across the main road. Follow this footpath along the circular building till the end. You are now on the square in front of the Auditorium.
Taxi Given the short distance between Eindhoven Central Station and the campus, there is no buss stop that substantially shortens the walk. At the south exit of the Station ("centre side") you can get a taxi.
From all motorways to and around Eindhoven (A2, A58, A67 en A270) follow the road signs with 'Centrum' until 'Universiteit' is indicated. There is sufficient parking space on campus.
The Congress Office of the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven can assist in handling hotel reservations and accommodation in general. In registering for ICALP and its co-located events, you can take advantage of special arrangements with a number of hotels.
As you can see on the schematic map of the city centre, all conference hotels except Parkzicht are in the city centre close to the railway station and within walking distance (up to 10 minutes) of the conference venue. The Parkzicht hotel is in a green area just outside the city centre, see the schematic map of the city.
