Science Park 123
1098 XG Amsterdam


If you are in Amsterdam the night before the workshop (Tuesday 29th) and wondering where everyone else might be, head for Ovidius. No reservation has been made, this is just a location to head for where we can meet up.

There is a wine and nibble reception at the end of day 1 of the workshop at the event venue, through until around 19:30 (thanks Informatie Vlaanderen). There is a limited choice of restauarants near CWI so you may want to head into the city for dinner but remember, we start at 09:00 on Thursday!

How to reach CWI by car

Navigaton system:
CWI is located at Science Park 123, 1098 XG Amsterdam. The street name 'Science Park' has been in use since 2011 and might not be implemented in all navigation systems. In case your navigation system does not recognize 'Science Park 123', please use the old address ‘Kruislaan 413, 1098 SJ Amsterdam’ instead.

Take the Science Park entry at your right and enter the gate

You can park your car at any parking lot after the gate. Follow the signs to number 123, our main entrance. Parking is paid after one hour. Please hold on to the card you receive when entering the gate; you will need it to leave the terrain.
