Information about the Lecture Series
First of all, your travel expenses will of course be covered by us, and also
a honorarium will be available.
We have already made room reservations for the lecture series for each
Thursday and Friday during the fall semester from 10:30 to 12:00. However,
if none of these days or time slots work for you, we can also arrange a
reservation for any other day and time.
- The Department of Computer Science
is located in the New Engineering Building, or short NEB. The department
office is in NEB 224. The NEB belongs to the Homewood Campus of the Johns
Hopkins University. A map of the Homewood Campus can be found
- Travelling by car: the following
driving directions will show you how to reach the Homewood Campus.
- Travelling by airplane: the nearest airport is the
International Airport (or short BWI). In the case that your host is
unable to pick you up, it is recommended to use a taxi (available at
any exit on the lower level of the airport) or a shuttle bus
to reach the hotel or the NEB building.
Shuttle services are offered by The
Airport Shuttle (Tel. 1-800-776-0323, www.theairportshuttle.com) and
the SuperShuttle (Tel. 1-800-Blue-Van, www.supershuttle.com).
Reservations should be made at least 24 hours in advance.
Another option would be the
Airport near Washington.
In this case, it is strongly recommended to use a rental car if the host
is unable to pick you up, since all other options either take considerably
more time or are considerably more expensive.
