Getting there and accommodation

Transportation

Amsterdam has a fantastic public transportation system.
- Buses 48, 246 and 759 stop right in front of the conference.
- Tram 26, departing from Amsterdam Centraal Station (main train station in the city).

More information can be obtained by using the GVB or 9292 websites. Both have excellent apps in the iOS (GVB & 9292) and Google Play (GVB) & 9292) store. Other apps (like Google Maps) have great integration as well.

A note to out of towners in in regards to obtaining a reloadable card for public transportation.

You can purchase an “OV chipkaart” at Amsterdam Centraal and most large metro stations (including Schiphol). Note that the unattended machines do not handle non-EU issued (e.g. Chip+Signature) cards well. Some U.S. Credit Unions now offer Chip+Pin technology on their debit card (note: not credit card). If your card doesn’t work or want to use Euros (other than coins), there is a customer service center located on the “IJ side” of Amsterdam Centraal where you can purchase a chipkaart in person at the Service Office. If you’re arriving via Schiphol - a similar service is offered in the main train hall
