The City of Bremen
is the second-largest city in Northern Germany — some perceive it as a quite walkable
large town with metropolitan characteristics. Located at the river Weser, the 1,200 year
old city has historically been an important gate to the world for seafarers and the
hanseatic merchants. The maritime ambience is still present but is now complemented
by modern logistics, high technology, space industries, and numerous scientific
institutions. Today's Bremen is sometimes informally called “Space City”
or “Beck’s City” (a reference to the world-famous Beck’s beer
that is brewed in Bremen).
For international participants, we recommend traveling by plane to Bremen Airport (BRE).
Whether you arrive by plane or by train, tram line 6 takes you directly to the University
of Bremen (30' from Bremen Airport, 15' from Bremen Main Station).
ICEC 2012 will take place in the GW2 building on the University of Bremen campus. The tram line 6 stop "Universität Bremen - Zentralbereich" is very close to the symposium venue. The map also shows the way from the tram stop to the entrance of the GW2 building.
Please refer to the BSAG website for more information on public transportation services in Bremen.
