Travel and accommodation

A map with the conference venue, hotels and station is available here.

Louvain-la-Neuve is an entirely pedestrian university campus which, with its cafés, restaurants, shops, sports centre and theatre, offers all the advantages of a real town. It is also home to the region’s largest shopping centre: L’Esplanade. 20 minutes away from Brussels, it is easy to reach by car (underground and open air car parks) or by train (station: Louvain-la-Neuve Université, NOT to be confused with Louvain / Leuven, situated in Flanders). Brussels National Airport is within very easy reach.

There is an Ibis Styles hotel (approximately 15 minute walk from the faculty building, free parking) and a Martin’s hotel (less than 5 minutes from the faculty building, parking has to be booked and paid). A limited number of rooms have been reserved at both hotels for conference participants and are available on a first come first serve basis. The booking form as well as the conference rate can be found here for the Ibis Styles Hotel (please send your form to the address included on the form, the offer is available until 12 November) and here for the Martin’s hotel (this offer is available until 15 November).

If you have some spare time before or after the conference, you can visit the brand new Musée L (museum with university collections), the Musée Hergé (dedicated to the creator of Tintin) of stroll on the Christmas Market Louvain-la-Neige.
