Venue

The conference will be hosted in the main Building on the campus of University of Hamburg (ESA). The main building is situated on Edmund-Siemers-Allee, which is right in the heart of the city of Hamburg. Hamburg is the second largest city of Germany and the eighth largest city in the European Union with a population of over 1.7 million people. It is one of the greenest cities of Europe and has many canals – and even more bridges than Venice. The venue is in close walking distance (10 minutes) to the beautiful Binnenalster, a water basin surrounded by parks that is very popular with locals and visitors alike. The ESA campus is well-connected to public transport: Dammtor railway station, which is served by local as well as long-distance trains, is located right in front of the building (5 minutes walking distance). Hamburg Airport can be reached within 30 minutes by local trains (leaving every 10 minutes) and can be easily reached from U.S. and Europe. The ESA campus has recently been used for various conferences for example IFIP SEC 2015 (https://www.ifipsec.org/2015), ICANN 2014 (http://icann2014.org) , ICME 2013 (http://www.icme13.org/).
