Instructions for speakers

Expenses

We will normally pay your hotel bill (room and breakfast) directly ourselves. We will need the following inorder to pay your travel expenses:

Travel

If you are arriving by plane, at Zaventem airport, then you should take the train to Gare du Midi, the main station in Brussels. The trains leave roughly every thirty minutes and the journey takes half an hour. If you are arriving by train, it is almost certain your train will also stop at Gare du Midi.

We typically use Hotel Agenda Louise for our speakers. To travel to Hotel Agenda from Gare du Midi, the main train station in Brussels, take the Metro to Louise, on line 2 or 6, direction Simonis (Elisabeth), a journey of aproximately 5 minutes. Be careful not to take the metro in the oposite direction, which has almost the same name: Simonis (Leopold). From Louise metro station you can walk to the hotel along Avenue Louise and turn right down Rue de Florence. The Hotel is on your right. The walk should take at most 10 minutes. Follow these links for a map of the Brussels Metro and a map of the walk from Louise metro to Hotel Agenda Louise

To travel from Hotel Agenda to the maths department, you can walk, take the metro or take a tram.

From Hotel Agenda to the department by metro

For the metro, walk back to Louise Metro station and then take the metro to Delta station. To do this take line 2 or 6 direction Simonis (Elisabeth) to Arts-Loi and then change for line 5, direction Hermann-Debroux. The whole metro journey will take about 30 minutes.

Delta station is on the same campus as the maths department. The department is in building NO, the differential geometry group is on the 7th floor and I can normally be found there in my office, O.7.112. Here is a link to a map of the campus with both Delta metro and building NO marked.

From Hotel Agenda to the department by tram

To get here by tram, walk from the hotel back to Avenue Louise and turn right, (the oposite direction from the metro). Catch the 94 tram, direction Musée du tram, as far as the ULB Solbosch campus. Warning: this is not the campus where the maths department is! To get to the maths department, you now walk along Avenue de l'Université to Campus de la Plaine. For more details, see this map of the tram journey and walk. Avenue de l'Université leaves you at accèss 2 on this map of the campus. The maths department is in building NO, the differential geometry group is on the 7th floor and I can normally be found there in my office, O.7.112.
