LOFT 2008

Local and Travel Information

The conference LOFT 2008 will take place in the Euclides building of the Universiteit van Amsterdam (Plantage Muidergracht 24). For arrival information, see our How to get here page.

The conference will start in the late morning of Thursday, 3 July 2008 and end in around 4pm or 4:30 pm on Saturday, 5 July 2008. We plan to make it possible to arrive with a very early flight at Schiphol and still be in time for the opening on Thursday, and leave with the evening flights on Saturday, if desired.

The LOFT organizers take care of the accommodation of the six invited speakers. All other participants are requested to find their accommodation via the excellent website
