International Symposium on Carbene and Nitrene Chemistry

The Symposium will be held in the Lecture hall C1.04 the at the Roeterseilandcampus location of the University of Amsterdam (UvA), Nieuwe Achtergracht 166 (9W76+6J), conveniently located in the city center of Amsterdam and easily reachable from the hotels and touristic places by public transport (Stop Weesperplein, metro 51, 53, 54 or tram 1, 7 19).

The lecture hall (C1.04) is at the waterfront of the open city campus of the university. The campus is located on the former Roeterseiland, named after the regent and city administrator Hendrik Roeters who lived in the 17th century. The island was part of a pre-industrial business area within the city walls. The canal belt was constructed in the 17th century for the large influx of affluent immigrants. Because there was enough space along the canals, large companies such as brandy distilleries, glassworks, iron foundries, diamond industries and the city nursery were established.

Plenty accommodations of all kind are available in Amsterdam and can best be booked online via any agency of your own preference. For students, PhD’s or those aiming at low budget locations, there is, among others, a Generator hostel nearby or a Stayokay hostel in the famous Vondel Park.


Welcome party: Amstelhaven, 25th of July, 18:00h.

The welcome party will be held at the Amstelhaven which has the largest deck terrace in Amsterdam that is actually on the water! The building was originally built as an atomic bomb shelter during the cold war for the municipal council. Amstelhaven is also one of the few places in Amsterdam where you can dock your boat and enjoy the sun all day long. You can best reach us via the Professor Tulpplein (near the Amstelhotel). When you have your back to the Amstelhotel, there is a bicycle bridge on your right. Our entrance is on the left on this bridge.
