The workshop The Count-Mass distinction. A Linguistic Misunderstanding? (CALM 2018) will take place at the Convention Centre (Hall 1) of the Ruhr-University Bochum.
The best way to get to the University from Bochum main station is the subway U35 (also labelled CampusLinie) in the direction “Ruhr-Universitaet - Querenburg - Hustadt”. You can get off at the station “Ruhr-Universitaet” and turn right after the stairs heading straight towards the Central University Library (Universitaetsbibliothek, UB), the Audimax and the Mensa/ Cantina.
The Convention Centre (Convention Center Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum) is located in the middle of the Campus, right behind the university cantina (Mensa). The building behind the Audimax is the refectory, you enter it and follow the signs to Veranstaltungszentrum. You can find the Convention Centre in the Campus Map, abbreviated as VZ.
