Amsterdam Conference Center
The Amsterdam Conference Center is a modern conference venue housed in the old Commodities Exchange ("Beurs van Berlage"), designed by the early modernist Dutch architect Berlage - an architect who left a significant mark on the city, being responsible for a major extension in the south of the city in the early 20th century.
The conference center is located right in the historic city center, located just a few blocks walking distance from the Amsterdam Central Station.
Navigating the Venue
When you enter from the street (Damrak 243) and walk straight on, you

There, all breakfast, coffee breaks, lunches, afternoon demo/poster
sessions as well as the PODS Reception on Sunday evening will be held.
Also, all sponsor stands are located in the Grote Zaal. To your left are
