Tilburg University Campus
Tilburg University Campus will be the main venue of the Conference. This is a well-integrated campus, located in a green and relaxing part if the city, very well accessible by public transport (both train and bus), close to the Tilburg city centre, as well as to other major cities in the south of the Netherlands (Breda, Eindhoven, Den Bosch), and international airports (Eindhoven, 75 minutes, Rotterdam-The Hague, about 90 minutes, Schiphol, about 2 hrs.). Tilburg and the neighbouring cities and towns have sufficient hotel accommodation of various quality and prices. Part of the program may take place at the dynamic High Tech Campus in Eindhoven.
When it comes to making the Netherlands home, international students and staff discover a country whose legacy of global trade and tolerance of different cultures makes settling in particularly easy-one of the reasons why the country is home today to no less than 160 different nationalities. The Netherlands ranks high in the world for quality of life.
Our city is an idyllic university town, the sixth largest city with a population of 200,000 inhabitants. Surrounded on all sides by woods and scenic areas, Tilburg is also a green city. Tilburg is situated only 10 kilometres from the Belgium border and 100 kilometres from Germany. Amsterdam and Brussels are only 1,5 hours away. In an hour you can be on the beach.
In Tilburg you can visit over a hundred cafes, visit museums (Art, Nature or the history of our textile city) see a film or a concert in our Concert Hall or Pop centre 013. All year long Tilburg hosts festivals including Festival Mundial (world music), Tilburg Wine City, Culinary Tilburg, the Tilburg Ten Miles and Tilburg Kermis (the largest fun fair in the Benelux). There is always something to do!

They include National Park “De Loonse en Drunense Duinen” and just around the corner of the University Campus: The Oude Warande, the last surviving example of the Baroque star-shaped park design.
