When you are at Wuppertal Hauptbahnhof (the main railway station), you may take the buses E, Uni-Express, 615 or 645 to the main campus of the University, exit at "Gaussstrasse". Alternatively, you may walk up the hill (15-20 minutes). You may find travel information (in German) here.

There is no formal registration, but please send an email to Mrs. Birkenfeld (birkenfeld (at) math.uni-wuppertal.de) so that we can estimate the number of participants. Please also indicate whether you want to join us for dinner on May 6 at the restaurant "Locanda San Lorenzo" (Untergruenewalder Str. 11). We will meet there at 7 pm (so you have time to stop at your hotel on the way).

Hotels: The speakers will stay at the Hotel Central in the City Center of Elberfeld near the Main Railway Station of Wuppertal. We have reserved a small number of additional rooms at this hotel for other participants. If you wish to book one of those, please contact directly the hotel and indicate that you are a participant of the NRW topology meeting. Other hotel options in the same area include the "Hotel Astor" and the "Hotel Arcade".

Here is a list of previous NRW-Topology meetings.

Organizers: Jens Hornbostel, Karl-Heinz Knapp.
