Leiden, Monday 9 February 2015

Must read articles are indicated above in bold, other papers provide additional information and are optional.

Guidance for finding the location: Walking from the station to the Sylvius lab takes about 20 minutes. Leave Leiden Central Station in the direction LUMC-Oegstgeest. Cross the small parking lot, and then a little to the left take the road diagonally crossing the lawn (Bontuspad) to end up at a parking garage. Follow the foot and bike path left of that garage (Hippocratespad). After crossing an open area, with quaint little bridges on your left followed by an ugly small pub on your right, you reach a bigger road (Darwinweg). Go right till the roundabout. There take the road to the left (first clockwise, Zernikedreef). After a small bit of walking take the first road to the right (Endegeesterwatering; closed of with a movable barrier for cars). When you have come to a parking lot on your right you can cross the water to the left, to end up in front of the Sylvius building. An alternative is not to take the rather gloomy Endegeesterwatering, but to go right only after the TNO laboratory, over a little bridge, where you already can see the lab, and follow the bike path to the right. The lecture theatre (15.03) is on the first floor, at the right hand side of the corridor behind the first door to the right when you come from the stairs.
