Preliminary Schedule to help you plan your visit to MEGA.

Download conference booklet with schedule and abstracts (PDF)
You will receive a printed copy of the booklet at the conference.

Your conference name-tag includes a public transportation ticket for the city area and the airport valid from June 3rd to June 7th. That means you only have to buy a one-way ticket to get to the conference, where you will receive your conference materials including the ticket.

The lecture room is part of the campus Bockenheim. Caveat: The other campuses (Westend, Riedberg) are *FAR AWAY*.

The subway: From the main station: Take subway U4 and exit at terminal station "Bockenheimer Warte". Caveat: Reverse direction of U4 "Bornheim" sounds similar!

Exit in direction the subway came from. Coming up the escalator, turn right into Mertonstrasse.

The lecture room is in the last building on the right.

Here's the map: Directions to Lecture Room
