Guidelines for presenters and session chairs



The Halle-Leipzig airport is located between the cities of Leipzig and Halle, close to the town of Schkeuditz in Saxony in the metropolitan area of Leipzig-Halle. A shuttle train travels to Leipzig Central station every 30 minutes (travel time about 15 minutes). Several regional trains and ICEs also travel between the airport and Central station (travel time about 10 minutes).

You can reach Leipzig by train in an environmentally friendly and comfortable way and arrive at Europe's largest terminal station in the middle of the city. There are EC-/IC and ICE connections in major cities in Germany and Europe.

From Central Station take the tram line 3 (in the direction of Sommerfeld or Taucha) to the stop Permoserstra├če/Torgauer Str. From there cross the street and walk east into Permoserstra├če. After approx. 300 meters, you will reach the UFZ with the Leipzig KUBUS on the left (travel time is about 12 minutes plus a 5 minute walk).
