Many conference participants will come from far. The conference organisation is aware of extra CO2 emissions caused by travelling. Therefore we would like to advise you to travel by train if you live at a night trains’ distance or less from Rotterdam. If you have to fly, there are several ways to off-set your CO2 emissions.
