General Information

Public transportation

In your conference bag you will find a bus ticket that is valid for all buses in Regensburg from July 29 to August 4. This pdf file shows a map of the bus lines. Bus schedules etc. are available on the RVV website, but unfortunately these pages are only available in German. If you take a night bus (after 01:00 am) you have to pay a surcharge of 1.00 Euro directly to the driver.

Welcome Reception

The Welcome Reception will take place on Sunday, July 29, from 18:00 to 21:00 in the "Runtingersaal", located downtown in Keplerstr. 1. This map shows the location. (If you move your mouse over the blue "P" symbols, you will get some information about parking downtown.) If you stay in a hotel downtown, you can take a walk to get to the Runtingersaal. If you stay farther away and want to use public transportation, please take one of the bus lines 1, 2, 4, 6, 11 or 13 and get off at the bus stop Fischmarkt. If you prefer to go downtown by car, note that you cannot park directly at the Runtingersaal. Parking downtown is possible in the parking garages Theater, Arnulfsplatz, Dachauplatz, and Peterstor as well as on the Donaumarkt, see this map.

Conference venue

The plenary sessions will be held in the Auditorium Maximum ("Audimax") of the University of Regensburg. The parallel sessions will be held in lecture halls close to the Audimax. The poster sessions will take place in the same area, outside the lecture halls. You can view a map of the Audimax area in png or pdf format. For details related to the talks and posters, please see the Information for Presenters.

You can reach the University

  • by foot, if you stay in a hotel close enough or don't mind a 30-45 minute uphill walk from downtown,
  • by bus via the lines 4, 6, or 11, or
  • by car. Free parking is available in the parking lot between the University and the Technical University, in the underground parking garage underneath the University (except in reserved spaces), and along the streets around the University.

You can view a very simple map as PNG and a very simple map as PDF, or a more detailed map as PNG and a more detailed map as PDF. We also have a more realistic map.
