This is the page for local information for the SIAM Conference on Applied
Algebraic Geometry which will take place on 10 – 14 July 2023
Eindhoven University of Technology in Eindhoven, the
The conference will take place at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven in the city of Eindhoven, North Brabant.
Talks will be given at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven in various rooms, mostly in the Auditorium and Atlas buildings.
Information of how to reach TU/e is available here. A campus map in pdf format is also available from that site. The TU/e campus is very compact and close to the city center, just north of the train station (the station is at the bottom left of the map).
Please budget some time on the first day to pick up your name tag and
conference gifts. One of the gifts is a thermos mug which you will
need for the coffee breaks as we will not provide single-use cups. We
will be ready for you starting at 08:00 in the Auditorium building to
get you to the talk on time. Please enter Auditorium through the
"onderwijs ingang" (teaching entrance) to the upper level. This is
entrance 13 if you come from the parking lot on the north (see picture) and
entrance 14 if you come from the city/train station side on the south
(see picture). An elevator
is on the east side (the narrow side) of the building, visible on both
pictures). Take the elevator to the first floor to reach us. There is
a separate elevator on the west side on this floor to take you to the
Blauwe Zaal where we have the plenary lectures.
Plenary lectures will take place in the Blauwe Zaal which is on the main floor
in Auditorium. Mini-symposia and contributed talks will mostly take place in other
lecture rooms on floor -1 and 2 in Auditorium and in Altas, see the
Auditorium and Atlas are both in quadrant B4 on the
Some lecture rooms are in Alpha (D3), Gemini (C4), and Flux
(D4). Atlas, Gemini, and Flux are connected to Auditorium via indoor walkways,
getting to Alpha requires some brief time outside.

WiFi and presentations
All buildings on campus as well as some parts in the inner city of Eindhoven have WiFi access with Eduroam. The lecture rooms also have an open WiFi network for guests; access expires every 4 hours and can be renewed any number of times by accessing the captive portal.
All lecture rooms for the contributed talks are equipped with projectors and a
built-in computer. We would like you to use the built-in computer to minimize
time for switching between presentations and will post URLs for speakers to
upload their slides on the Zulip server for the conference.
As a backup you can bring your own laptop. The rooms have a selection of adapters. All
projectors support full-size HDMI connectors.
We have emailed speaker instructions to all registered participants. These
include instructions for remote as well as in-person attendees giving

Eindhoven has direct train connections to Amsterdam, Amsterdam Airport, Rotterdam, and Den Haag to the north/west and to Venlo and Maastricht to the east/south. The closest airports are Eindhoven airport, Rotterdam airport and Schiphol (Amsterdam airport); these can be reached by public transportation. Weeze is reachable by car.
Some years ago all public transportation got unified to accept a form of electronic payment, the OV Chipcard. While the card is quite famous in crypto and security as a subject of research, it can also be used for public transportation. The card costs 7.50 EUR but saves you 1 EUR on every train ride (fee for the paper card) and around 1.50 EUR for short bus rides. You need to check in at the start of your journey and out at the end of it. Fees are based on distance. You can buy the cards in Schiphol airport and in every train station.
Amsterdam airport to Eindhoven
Eindhoven is about 1.5 hours by train from Schiphol (Amsterdam airport), the biggest airport in the Netherlands with good connections to everywhere in the world.
The airport has a train station (called Schiphol) and direct trains serve Eindhoven
twice per hour during daytime; there are also two rides per hour involving a change in
Eindhoven also has its own airport which is served by some low-cost airlines. From the arrival hall at Eindhoven airport you can walk to the bus stop. With bus no 400, starting at Eindhoven Airport, Eindhoven Central station is accessible in 21 minutes (and 24 min for bus 401). You can buy a ticket in the bus or use an OV chip card.
International trains to Eindhoven
Details on public transportation can be found at http://9292.nl/en. Note that you can search for connections between street addresses. TU/e is very close to the train station and city center, so likely you won't need to take any bus in Eindhoven.
Travel by car
It is possible to park on campus for a fee, but parking space is limited.
Most Dutch cities are now an environmental zone which means that the vehicles
need to adhere to some requirements; this is mostly an issue for Diesel
engines. That said, Dutch cities are making efforts to be less car
friendly, adding one-way streets, bus-only streets, and bumpers to make driving
Travel by bike
For the real Dutch experience you may wish to rent a bike. Some hotels and
Airbnb accommodations offer bikes and there is a bike-rental scheme linked to
the OV chipcards, though this does require registration in advance.
Make sure to always lock your bike, the joke that people spend more on their locks than on their bikes is not really a joke. There are lots of parking lots available for bikes, incl. bike racks with 2 full levels, and there is parking at level -1 at Auditorium. In July the semester is over so there should be less pressure on those spaces. Make sure not to park at places where it's forbidden. The city is fast at cutting locks and removing bikes and then you have to pay a fee to get your bike back and the expensive lock is broken.
The poster panels are 0,95 x 2,25m. The space that can be used is 0,90x2,20m, so A0 posters in portrait mode will fit. Participants with accepted posters should prepare their posters to fit these dimensions.
