Schedule & Conference Booklet

Date & Venue & Lecture halls

FDIS 2023 will take place during August 7-11, 2023 "on campus only", i.e., there will not be any online/hybrid options for participation!

  • Conference venue: in the very city center of Antwerp/Belgium, more precisely in Building C on the campus "Stadscampus" of the University of Antwerp. Here is a map of campus "Stadscampus" (where building C is officially denoted as "S.C" where "S" is the abbreviation for "stadscampus"). ATTENTION: the conference does thus NOT take place on Campus Middelheim where the math department is located!
  • Conference lecture halls: The plenary lectures are planned in lecture hall S.C.003. The contributed talks take place in S.C.002 and S.C.003. The seminar room S.C.001 can be used  for individual discussions and socializing. (The name of lecture halls is composed as follows: campus abbreviation ("S") dot building ("C") dot room number where the "0" at the beginning of the room number indicates "ground floor"). Both lecture halls S.C.002 and S.C.003 have blackboards and a projector screen.
  • Poster session: The poster boards will be placed in the corridor leading to the conference lecture halls S.C.001, S.C.002, and S.C.003.
