<wikipedia> Stuttgart (pronounced SHTUUT-gart) is the capital and largest city of the German state of Baden–Württemberg. Stuttgart is located on the Neckar river in a fertile valley known locally as the „Stuttgart Cauldron”. It lies an hour from the Swabian Jura and the Black Forest. Its urban area has a population of 609,219, making it the sixth largest city in Germany. 2.7 million people live in the city’s administrative region and another 5.3 million people in its metropolitan area, making it the fourth largest metropolitan area in Germany.
Some major companies have their headquarters in Stuttgart, including Porsche, Bosch, Mercedes–Benz,and Daimler.
Several European airlines have direct flights to Stuttgart International Airport from different European cities.
The workshop will be held at the Internationales Begegnungszentrum (IBZ) in walking distance to main campus of University of Stuttgartin Stuttgart/Vaihingen. IBZ is run by the university itself, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Fraunhofer, and the Max Planck Society. The whole venue will be reserved for the workshop, no other guests will be on its premises.
A regional train station is located right on campus with direct connections to Stuttgart International Airport, Stuttgart Main Station, the Mercedes–Benz Museum, and the downtown area.
Getting to the IBZ
From Stuttgart Central Station with the train S1 (Herrenberg/Böblingen/Vaihingen), S2 (Filderstadt/Flughafen/Vaihingen) or the S3 (Flughafen/Vaihingen) to the stop 'Universität'. Exit the station through the 'Universitätszentrum' exit. The signposts by the exit will lead you to the IBZ.
From the airport, with the train S2 or S3 going in the direction 'Stadtmitte' to the stop 'Universität' (Travel time: 17 minutes). Exit the station through the 'Universitätszentrum' exit. The signposts by the exit will lead you to the IBZ.
Take Highway A831 from the Stuttgart interchange in the direction Stuttgart-Vaihingen/Stuttgart-Zentrum. Exit the highway at 'Universität'. At the first set of traffic lights turn left onto Universitätstraße (Universitätstrasse). At the end of Universitätsstraße turn left onto Allmandstraße. After approx. 300m, at the traffic lights, turn left onto Robert-Leicht-Straße. The IBZ is located at the end of the street on the lefthand side.
When coming from the Vaihingen campus or the Universität train station, the signposts will lead you to the IBZ. It is about a 10 minute walk from campus.
The University of Stuttgart runs its own on-campus hotel, campus.guest. Room rates start at 59 Euro/night.
