VENUE AND TRANSPORTATION:

Hamburg is the second-largest city in Germany, home to over 1.8
million people. Situated at the river Elbe, the port of Hamburg is
the second-largest port in Europe. The University of Hamburg is
the largest institution for research and education in the north of
Germany.

The venue of the conference is the ESA building of the University
of Hamburg, situated at Edmund-Siemers-Allee near the city centre
and easily reachable from Dammtor Railway Station. Hamburg Airport
can be reached easily via public transport.
