Getting around in Amsterdam is easy; there are metro’s, busses and trams, and a lot can be done on foot. Or get around like the locals, and get a bike!
Google Maps generally gives the correct route for each transportation type.
Getting to Amsterdam from Europe can be done by car (although parking in Amsterdam can be challenging and expensive), train (see Nederlandse Spoorwegen / NS) and/or airplane (Schiphol airport, code AMS).
Getting from Schiphol airport to the city or conference venue takes about 30 minutes; easiest is to take the NS train to Amsterdam Centraal (20 minutes) and then metro 51, 53 or 54. For the conference, exit at Weesperplein (5 minutes) and walk to the building (another 5 minutes), see Conference Venue.
