Getting to us:
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.

Getting into Frankfurt:
You can book your train ticket via Deutsche Bahn Booking at least 7 days in advance will yield cheaper tickets (but will restrict you to your chosen train).
If your train-ticket says: "+City" you are eligible to use public transport (subway, bus, and tram) to reach your final destination. This ticket-extension is valid one-way only and for immideate use, you may change as often as you need but you can not pause or go back. From the main-station to the university a short-trip ticket is sufficient (see below).
Note that The Airport "Frankfurt-Hahn" (HHN) is far away from Frankfurt, and connections are poor (1h travel + max 45 min wait).
Arriving at Frankfurt airport (FRA) you will need to take the S-Bahn into Frankfurt (approx 10 min travel + max 15 min wait, 3,90 EUR).
The station "Regionalbahnhof" is in Terminal 1 Section B in the underground level (note that there are two trainstations at the airport). Please change at Hauptbahnhof into subway U4.
Please contact us upfront if you are coming by car, so we can arrange for parking, which is especially hard to find around the university.
Frankfurt is reachable via A5 from south/north and A3 from east/west. Note that due to several construction sites on both highways, there may be traffic-jams. Getting into Frankfurt in the morning and getting out in the evening is especially painful.
