Like its predecessors the 7th SAC Developers' Conference is an invitation-only workshop. Having said that, it is nevertheless not a closed event. If you have not been invited, but wish to participate, please do contact this year's DevCon chair Clemens Grelck. Accommodation

Amsterdam offers a wealth of accommodation opportunities. A recommended online hotel reservation service is Since there are no hotels within walking distance of Science Park Amsterdam, the best option is a hotel close to Centraal station or in the center of Amsterdam.


University of Amsterdam
Institute of Informatics
Computer Systems Architecture Group

The Institute of Informatics is located in the shiny new Science Park Amsterdam in Watergraafsmeer. It is well connected by public transport. Bus lines 40 and 240 bring you there from Amsterdam Amstel railway station every 7.5 minutes at peak times. A train service connects the new station Amsterdam Science Park with Amsterdam Centraal every 30 minutes (traject Amsterdam-Almere). Train via Amsterdam Centraal is also the most recommended means of transport from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. More detailed travel information can be found here.

Once you have reached Science Park, look for the NIKHEF building (building 105). It is exactly opposite of the new faculty building shown above. Please, register with the NIKHEF reception upon arrival. The DevCon takes place in room F3.20 (third floor) on Wednesday and room F0.09 (ground floor) on Thursday.
