ICPR 2022 will take place from 9am on Thursday, September 22nd until 5pm on Saturday, September 24th.

ICPR 2022 will be held at the prestigious Philharmonie Haarlem (30 minutes west of Amsterdam Central Station): 

Stadsschouwburg & Philharmonie Haarlem

The nearest airport is Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. The most sustainable option after you land, is a train to Haarlem, for which you have to transfer at Amsterdam Sloterdijk. Plan your train trip on the website of the national railroad NS.

If you choose to stay in Amsterdam or another city in the Netherlands, there are ample connections to Haarlem  station. From there, it’s a 10-minute walk to the Philharmonie.  Taxi’s and bikes are available at the station.

Uber is available in Amsterdam and Haarlem. Shared mobility is available through Felyx, GO and ShareNow.

Travel is not included in the conference fee.

Haarlem is a beautiful city and well worth a multiple day visit. It is also a slightly more economical choice when it comes to lodging compared to Amsterdam. 

If you choose to lay your head in Amsterdam, please be advised that it might be convenient to choose a place close to a metro line or within walking distance of Amsterdam Central Station. 

At this moment, we do not have additional lodging available for attendees and request you to arrange this at your own discretion. Should these options become available, we will communicate with ticket holders.

The working language of the conference is English. In case of a possible exception, simultaneous translation will not be offered.
