Schünemann (Vice-President of the Chamber of Commerce Hamburg) and Prof. Dr. Ingrid Schirmer (Department of Computer Science, Hamburg University).

Please assure to arrive at the Hamburg Town Hall latest 06:30pm in order to pass through the entrance procedure (Identity Check). For delegates that arrive too late, entrance is not guaranteed. The reception starts at 07:00pm. During the reception, finger food and drinks are provided. You can arrange restaurant or bar visits on your own for the remaining evening after the reception.

Please pay attention to keep it safe and take it with you. You have to show your personal invitation for entering the Town Hall. Please bring your conference name badge with you, too.

You have several possibilities to get to the Town Hall from the conference venue:

  • Walk on your own: It takes around 20 minutes from the conference location to the town hall. You can find a map with the walking route here.

  • Public Transport: Bus stations “Universität/Staatsbibliothek” as well as “Dammtor” are located in very close vicinity of the conference venue in Edmund-Siemers-Allee. Here you can take the bus lines 4 or 5 (Direction “Hauptbahnhof/ZOB” or “Rathausmarkt” or “Marco-Polo-Terrassen”) until station “Rathausmarkt”. You can buy bus tickets (Single Ticket: 1,80 € (from “Universität/Staatsbibliothek”) or 1,30 € (from “Dammtor”), One-Day-Ticket for the city of Hamburg: 6,80 € or 5,50 € depending on the time of buying).  The bus ride takes 7 minutes. From station “Rathausmarkt”, you can already see the town hall and to the entrance it is a 2 minute walk.
