Practical information

NWO CHAINS 2022 will be organised live at the conference center NH Koningshof in Veldhoven. Shuttle buses will be arranged to transport you from Eindhoven Central station to the venue and back.

NH Koningshof does not have enough hotel rooms to accommodate all participants. Therefore, hotel rooms in nearby satellite hotels are reserved as well. Shuttle buses are also provided for transport between the satellite hotels and the venue.

The conference fee contributes in part to the total costs of food and beverage, the venue and programme itself and shuttle buses between Eindhoven central station/hotels and the venue. The bulk of the costs are covered by NWO, including the overnight stays. Participants living in the surroundings of Eindhoven are advised not to book a hotel room as we cannot guarantee your room will be in at the venue itself and not in one of the satellite hotels.

  • We only request a small contribution from M.Sc. and B.Sc. and we cannot offer them an overnight stay due to the limited number of hotel rooms available.
  • PhDs and Postdocs that opt for an overnight stay are automatically assigned a double room. The room will be shared with a preferred roommate, by filling in a mutual roommate. If you have not filled in a preferred roommate, you will be assigned a roommate by us of the same gender.
  • Group leaders can opt for a single room and also have the option to attend the group leader event on the evening prior to NWO CHAINS 2022, which includes an additional overnight stay.

The conference fee includes for two days: coffee breaks, lunches, drinks, dinner and overnight stay on 21 September and shuttle buses between Eindhoven central station and the venue.
