How to get

Bielefeld itself has no airport. The closest airports are Paderborn, Münster-Osnabrück and Dortmund. However, these airports are quite small and serve just few directions. Somewhat bigger airports are Hannover and Düsseldorf, which have very good train connection to Bielefeld. Consult the webpage of Deutsche Bahn for train timetables. You may wish to consult the site for cheap flights (it is in German, but the search form you need is straightforward).

To reach the university from the train station (as well as from the center of the city), take the subway Nr.4 in the direction "Löhmannshof" to the "Universität" station. Buy a ticket "Preisstufe I BI" for any trip within Bielefeld (current price is 2 Eur). You can also buy a somewhat cheaper ticket valid for 4 trips (current price is 6,40 Eur).

Some useful information (e.g. plan of the university main building) is available here.

How to find the lecture room

Once you get to the huge university hall on the ground floor from the tram station, turn on your right and proceed to the restaurant "Univarza". Right after the restaurant turn on your left. Then go up to the third floor. Common Room (V3-201) is the first room in the corridor on your right.


There is no formal registration, but please send an e-mail (see Contact below) if you wish to attend.

Financial Support

The meeting is supported by the University of Bielefeld and  CRC "Spectral Structures and Topological Methods in Mathematics".
