With over 1,000 participants expected, we’ve arranged to hold GIJC19 at two state-of-the-art, nearby locations: Der Spiegel publishing house (address: Ericusspitze 1, 20457 Hamburg) and the HafenCity University Hamburg (HCU; address; Überseeallee 16, 20457 Hamburg). Their new buildings offer excellent conference infrastructure, a comfortable working atmosphere and integrated catering facilities.
Conference sessions will be held entirely at Hafencity University on Thursday. On Friday and Saturday, sessions will be split between the university and Spiegel, but lunch will only be available at the university. On Sunday, all sessions will be held at Spiegel. It’s a ten minute walk between the two venues.
HafenCity is a new and growing quarter in the heart of Hamburg’s harbor – located a short distance from other parts of the city center and interesting places like the new Elbphilharmonie (Elbe Philharmonic Hall).
Hamburg’s entertainment district St. Pauli/Reeperbahn — filled with bars, music clubs, restaurants and theaters — is just a stone’s throw away. Transportation is convenient as subway stations are located just a few steps from the buildings. The nearest station to Hafencity University is the U-Bahn subway line U4 HafenCity Universität station and the nearest tube station to the Spiegel buildings is the U-Bahn U1 Meßberg station.
They lead to the main station (Hamburg Hauptbahnhof) in just 6 minutes and to the airport in 30 minutes.
The venue allows the participants to choose between various accommodations (and prices), all reachable in a short time on foot or by public transport.
