The Venue: University of Twente, the Netherlands

The University of Twente (UT) is an entrepreneurial research university, located in Enschede, a city in the east of the Netherlands. The UT employs 3000 people and offers a wide variety of courses to approximately 6500 students. Focal points include Telematics; research in this area is organized within the Centre for Telematics and Information Technology (CTIT). Within the chair Design and Analysis of Communication Systems (DACS), that is a part of the CTIT institute, researchers have many years of experience in the areas of fixed, mobile & wireless (inter)networking, end-to-end QoS signaling and provisioning, mobility and routing in logical access (overlay) networks, network and service management, and performance and dependability evaluation. Together with TNO-ICT (previously TNO-Telecom) and CWI, DACS hosts a national expertise centre for research on networking quality of service, called "E-Quality".

The IWQoS 2008 invited presentations and workshop sessions are in building 2, “Spiegel”, in room 2.

Getting to the UT

By car:

If you travel by car you should follow the road signs "Hengelo" or "Enschede". Once you arrive in either city, follow the white road signs marked "Universiteit".

Take the A35, direction Enschede, and then take exit # 26 "Enschede-West/Universiteit". Follow the sign “Universiteit”, the first exit to the right. Go left at the traffic lights and follow signs 'UNIVERSITEIT'.

Public transport

Public transport in The Netherlands is the most convenient means of transportation. Trains run with high frequency. The same goes for buses and trams. Almost any place or town in The Netherlands can be reached by a combination of tram, bus or train. If you have any questions, there are information desks for buses, trams, and trains at every railway station.

There is a railway station inside Schiphol Airport from which you can take a train towards Enschede. Please note that on Saturday May 31 and Sunday June 1, several construction activities will take place on a part of the train route between Schiphol – Enschede. This will mean that you will have to ask for assistance from the NS (train company) employees at Schiphol Airport before you arrange the train trip and pay the ticket. Near the University of Twente there is a railway station called Enschede Centraal. From here you can go by bus to the University; take bus number 1.
