Conference venue Karlsruhe

Karlsruhe, the city in the sunny south-west of Germany – famous for its historic fan-shaped street plan, close to the French border and surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Black Forest – is a perfect place for conferences as well as for leisure time.

Karlsruhe is easily accessible via train, motorway or plane (Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Karlsruhe / Baden-Baden) and the Fraunhofer IOSB, which will host the conference, is located in walking distance to the heart of the city.
