Getting there (and away)
As a small university city, Goettingen does not have its own airport. The most convenient way to get here from overseas is to fly either to Frankfurt (FRA, ca. 250 km southwest of Goettingen) or to Hanover (HAJ, ca. 100 km to the north).
From FRA to Göttingen: Every two hours there is a direct ICE ("Inter City Express") train from FRA airport to Göttingen, leaving from the long distance station ("Fernbahnhof") between Terminals 1 and 2. The journey will take about 2 hours. In case your plane arrives at an inconvenient time, take a train from the airport's regional station ("Regionalbahnhof") in Terminal 1 to Frankfurt's central railway station ("Hauptbahnhof") and change to a train to Göttingen (there is at least one train per hour).To find out details about your individual train connections, you may also consult the website of the German Railways ("Deutsche Bahn").
The local organisation of the conference lies in the hands of the MCST-Project at the East Asian Department of the University of Göttingen. The project's offices are located in the former building of the Faculty of Education ("alte PH") at Waldweg 26, 37073 Göttingen. The conference office is in Room N412/13 on the fourth floor, Tel.: ++49 551 392298. Should you encounter any difficulties, please do not hesitate to contact us there.
If you expect to receive faxes during the conference, please use the number: ++49 551 395222 (and indicate to forward them to the conference staff). For eMails we will set up a telnet terminal in the library. If your home provider does not allow telnet access, messages may also be sent to the temporary address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
