The 13th International Conference on Scientific Computing in Electrical Engineering (SCEE 2020) will be held in Eindhoven (The Netherlands), organised by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Eindhoven University of Technology. The conference location is the Academic Society (Academisch Genootschap - Parklaan 93), located in the heart of Eindhoven, a 10 minute walk away from most hotels in the city centre. Below are some photographs of the conference location, and the lecture room where most activity will take place.
Eindhoven can be reached easily in many different ways, by plane as well as by train and car. This is mainly due to the fact that Eindhoven is in the heart of the Brainport Region, Europe's leading innovative top technology region that was voted the most intelligent region of the world in 2011. It is the major location of companies like Philips, ASML, NXP Semiconductors and many more, as well as the High Tech Campus.
Eindhoven airport has many connections to European cities via companies like Transavia, Ryanair and Wizzair. From the airport, there is a regular bus service to the city centre. When flying to Amsterdam Schiphol airport, connected to all major cities and more in Europe, it is best to take the regular train service to Eindhoven (every 15 minutes) directly from Arrivals Hall 1-2.
Eindhoven can be reached easily by car. From Germany, it is best to travel via Venlo or Maastricht, via Belgium one can go through Maastricht or follow the route via Antwerpen to Breda and Eindhoven. As there are many route planners available nowadays, it is advised to use one of these. In case of any doubt, please contact the local organising committee. The conference location has its own parking, that can be entered via Fazantlaan (in GPS, enter Fazantlaan 16), and there is a clear sign with “Academisch Genootschap Eindhoven”. Parking in the city centre is not cheap (as it is in most cities), so a suggestion may be to either park the car at the conference location and leave it there for the duration of the conference, or as the local organisers to provide parking at the university (from there, it is a 15 minute walk to the conference location, and 10 minutes to all hotels and the city centre).
Eindhoven can be reached from all major cities in The Netherlands very easily by train, for schedules see the NS journey planner. The city is also connected to European cities, either directly or by first traveling to Amsterdam, for example on fast trains from Germany, France (train called Thalys) or the UK, see the website of NS International, or your local train provider.
Eindhoven has ample hotel accomodation, and the recommended website is Booking.com. Reserving accomodation is up to you, we have not made any block booking as people will most probably stay in quite a few different hotels. Here are some suggestions with characteristics (these will appear in the list when using Booking.com):
- The Inntel Art Hotel Eindhoven, located in the former Philips Lighting factory, with rooms where you still get the feeling of these old times. It is not the cheapest hotel.
- The Pullman Cocagne hotel used to be owned by Philips, now it is still the best hotel in town, but therefore also not cheap.
- The Student Hotel Eindhoven is a fairly new hotel, and ideally located with respect to the conference location (less than 5 minutes walk). Although the name suggests otherwise, it is not a budget hotel.
- The Queen Hotel right in the city centre on “Markt” (nice place with many pubs and restaurants) is popular with university guests, and not too expensive.
- There are some cheaper hotels like Lightotel Eindhoven and 3BE Backpackers Bed & Breakfast.
For almost all hotels the distance to the conference location is a 10 minute walk, with only few exceptions. When in doubt, please send an email to the local organising committee.
