Venue

The conference takes place at the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics, which is located in the historical city centre of Maastricht. The address is Tongersestraat 53, 6211 LM Maastricht.

The plenary sessions take place in the “Aula” (room H0.01). The room can be found by taking the stairs directly opposite to the entrance, and then turning into the hallway on your right at the top of the stairs. The Aula can be entered through the first two (wooden) doors on the right-hand side of the hallway.

The poster session and the coffee/lunch breaks take place in “Ad Fundum”, the area directly opposite to the entrance of the building; take the small stairs down to reach it (the area is located on the left of the big stairs going up). On-site registration takes place there as well.

The conference dinner will take place on Friday evening at Restaurant Petit Bonheur. The restaurant is located at Hotel Au Quartier at 5 minutes walking distance from the university; see the map below for the exact location.

Travel

To reach the Maastricht University School of Business and Economics by train, take the train to Maastricht Central Station (CS).

From there you can take bus numbers 3, 4, 9 and 12 (at night time or very early in the morning take bus numbers 21, 28, 29 and 32). You can tell the bus driver that you need to get off the bus at bus stop “Tongersestraat”; he will warn you at the appropriate time. The bus stop is across the street from the main entrance to the School.

Alternatively, if the weather is nice, going by foot from the station to the School is a pleasant 25 minute walk through the historical city centre. Click here for a detailed route description for walking to the School from the station.

More general route descriptions to the School of Business and Economics can be found here.
