New University Building
The majority of the conference will take place in the New University building located in the center of the old town at Universitätsplatz. This building does not only provide us with enough room for presentations and workshops but also features a beautiful garden to sit in. Lunch will also be served here.
Old University Building
The Old University building, built between 1712 and 1728 and located at Universitätsplatz, houses the university’s museum, the Great Hall, the Bel Etage, as well as the famous Student Prison.
We will have our first plenary in Heidelberg’s wonderful Great Hall (Alte Aula).
The Welcome Reception will be held in the Bel Etage on the first floor of the Old University.
The English Department is located very close to the Universitätsplatz and will provide multiple rooms for workshops as well as a beautiful baroque garden.
Boat Trip on the Königin Silvia
While we initially planned to have the boat trip on the smaller Europa, we have now happily upgraded to the new Weisse Flotte flagship Königin Silvia (Queen Silvia).

Conference Dinner at NEO
RESTAURANT & BAR NEO
NEO is a modern urban restaurant in Heidelberg’s Bahnstadt. Following their motto “Feed your Soul”, NEO spoils their guests with premium steaks, great sushi and vegetarian food that even convinces strict carnivores.
Heidelberg’s restaurant scene tends to veer towards the rustic and provincial, so NEO Bar & Restaurant is a refreshing oasis of cool.cotter50 @ TripAdvisor
Don’t worry – NEO also features both a great bar and a sound system which can handle any ICAME dance party with ease.
The restaurant can be reached on foot (30 minutes from Bismarckplatz; 10 minutes from the central train station) or by tram (via 22, 26 to HD Hauptbahnhof Süd),
