HOW TO REACH US
Delft is very well connected. The location allows participants to reach the conference from almost all over Europe in ~4 hours. Delft is also well connected to the European long-distance train system.
BY PLANE, VIA AMSTERDAM AIRPORT SCHIPHOL
Amsterdam Airport Schiphol services all major airlines. The train connection from Schiphol to Delft is a 40–60-minute train ride, and can be reached from many destinations. Trains depart from Schiphol roughly every 15 minutes.
BY PLANE, VIA ROTTERDAM THE HAGUE AIRPORT
The nearest airport is Rotterdam The Hague Airport. This airport has 40 destinations in Europe, and by its size has a shorter check-in time. From there, by bus or by train one can reach Delft in 30–40 minutes, or take a 15-minute taxi ride to Delft.
BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Delft is accessible by train from Paris, Brussels, and London. Although the high-speed trains do not stop at Delft, you can disembark in either Rotterdam or Den Haag HS and get on a connecting train to Delft (10–15 minutes). Trains from Germany arrive via Utrecht CS and Amsterdam CS, both of which are about 50 minutes from Delft on a connecting train.
Once in Delft, at Delft Central Station several buses depart for Delft University roughly every 10 minutes. You can get off at the bus stop “TU Aula” stop, right in front of the Aula Conference Center building and almost in front of IDE, at the TU Delft campus. Bus lines that reach the “TU Aula” stop are:
40 direction Rotterdam Centraal
55 direction Zoetermeer

IDE is easily accessible by car via the A13, exit Delft/Pijnacker and exit 10 Delft Zuid/TU-wijk. You can find multiple large parking lots on the campus.
Parking is free of charge on campus. The six large parking areas are well signposted on the campus ring road. However, the demand for parking is high. Always account for enough time to find a parking space and then walk to your destination.
