Symposium Venue and Accommodations

Symposium Venue

The symposium will be held at the School of Design and Environment, National University of Singapore. For a map of venue, see the official website or Google Maps.

Getting here

Taxi – This is probably the easiest way to get to the symposium venue. Please direct the taxi driver to NUS. Instead of turning into the campus from Clementi Road, please ask the taxi driver to let you alight at the bus stop along Clementi Road (as seen in the image below). The symposium venue, SDE3, is just next to the bus stop.

MRT – The symposium venue is nearest to the Kent Ridge MRT station. From there, take a free NUS shuttle bus service A1 to Central Library bus stop (see below).

From the Central Library bus stop, cross the road and just follow the red tiled pavement to the symposium venue, SDE 3 (see below).

See here for more details on the NUS shuttle bus service.

Below is a map that indicates the two main ways of getting to the symposium venue described above.
