Travel & Accommodation
With global warming soaring, we are keen to try as much as much as we can to contribute to a carbon neutral framework for the conference. To this end, the conference will be held in a completely hybrid form, on a platform that allows for particularly exciting ways of participating online.
We encourage everyone to consider their environmental responsibilities when registering for the conference, and to prioritise travelling by train (or bus), or to join us online instead of flying to Amsterdam.
We are aware that this choice is likely to challenge the possibilities of an ‘inclusive’ conference. Yet given the costliness of air-travel and the weariness of visa-provision for those participating from beyond Europe and in particular from the so-called Global South, we think that encouraging ‘everyone’ to fly to Amsterdam would stand a small chance of actually catering to inclusiveness.
Travelling by train
We recommend using www.thetrainonline.com as one of the best website for booking train and bus tickets to Amsterdam.
Accomodation in Amsterdam can be expensive. Therefore we recommend booking your stay as soon as possible. There are many options for staying in Amsterdam: hostels, airbnb’s or hotels. A good website to check what fits your budget best is https://www.trivago.nl/.
For participants of the NIAS Conference, we can offer a 10% discount code when you book a room at the Volkshotel or Eden Hotelbetween 17-24 April. Just enter NIASKNAW in the promo-code section when finalising your booking.
