Institute for Advanced Study
The Collaboration Meeting will take place in the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), in the middle of the Campus.
We meet in the Faculty Club, a conference room located on the top floor, which can host up to 100 people.
You reach the campus by subway (U-Bahn) line U6.
From Munich city or Garching city you take U6 to Garching-Forschungszentrum (that is the last station). Please take the north exit from the station (direction Lichtenbergstraße, Physik, Mensa...).
The conference venue will be just in front of you, 150 m from the exit you take. We meet in the Institute for Advanced Study, 4th floor "Faculty Club".
Please note in the Munich downtown there is U6 station called “Universität”. This is not where the meeting takes place
