Date & Venue

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. For contributed talks and/or individual discussions, we have in addition the lecture halls S.C.001 and S.C.002 at our disposal. (The name of lecture halls is composed as follows: campus abbreviation ("S") dot building ("C") dot room number where the "0" in the room number indicates "ground floor").
  • 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.
