Symposium venue

The University of Konstanz

DAISY is being held in the University of Konstanz, in R611.


The University of Konstanz was founded in 1966 and is just a stone's throw from Lake Constance itself. It is one of the eleven German Excellence Universities and numbers some 10,000 students from almost 100 countries. It is a campus university meaning that students benefit from having everything they need in a single location, from the university cafeteria, lecture theatres, seminar rooms through to the university library and additional quiet areas to study.

You can get to the university by taking the 9A or 9B buses. They run from the town centre to the university every 15 minutes. The conference venue is just opposite the bus stop on the university campus.
