Delft is a place you will easily fall in love with. This charming city is the birthplace of the oldest and largest Dutch technological university and the stage of innumerous historical events. Delft, a canal-ringed city in the western Netherlands, is known as the manufacturing base for Delftware, hand-painted blue-and-white pottery. In its old town, the medieval Oude Kerk is the burial site of native son and Dutch Master painter Johannes Vermeer. Once the seat of the royal House of Orange, the 15th-century Nieuwe Kerk houses the family’s tombs and overlooks Delft’s lively market square.
Delft is a serene location between the vibrant cities of Rotterdam (15 minutes), Den Haag (20 minutes) and Amsterdam (50 minutes), by tram, train, bus and, of course, by bike.
The conference will be held on the campus of TU Delft, at walking/cycling distance from the center of Delft and the train station. In the historical city center you will find a unique cultural atmosphere, diverse shopping opportunities as well as lovely cafés and cozy restaurants. Canals and bridges that crisscross Delft give the town a unique romantic flair. So, don’t hurry, work will wait.
We look forward to welcoming you in Delft!
