|How to get here?
||IPEM is located next to the big Ghent University library tower ("boekentoren" in Dutch) built by the famous Belgian architect Henri Vandevelde. The tower in its turn is located near a big square known as the "Sint-Pietersplein". If you ever get lost in the city (chances are very small, as is Ghent), just ask for one of these places. More info on the city itself can be found here.
||There is no airport in Ghent, so unless you bring your private helicopter, you'll need to take a flight to Zaventem (the main international airport in Belgium) or another smaller airport (like Charleroi). From the airport, you will need to take a train or taxi (rather expensive) to Ghent.
||There are trains to Ghent from any major city in Belgium, including direct trains from the main airport (about 1 hour). Take a train to "Gent, Sint-Pieters", which is the main railway station in Ghent.
From there, it will take you about 15 minutes by foot to get to the IPEM offices. During the day, we advise you to take the shortcut through the "Citadelpark" since that's a much nicer walk than using the main roads.
If you feel tired or when the weather is bad, you can also take a bus or tram departing in front of the railway station.
||Ghent is located just north-west of the crossing of highways E40 (Brussels - Oostende) and E17 (Kortrijk - Antwerp).
Since Ghent is rather small and has very good public transportation, you'll hardly ever need your car in the city. Most of the inner part is car-free anyway (but not the part where IPEM is located). On the highway E17-E40 reaching Ghent, follow "Alle richtingen" (all directions). Once you are off the highway, take the left lane and turn left at the first traffic lights. After the "Overpoortstraat" you wil find the large square "Sint Pietersplein" where you can park your car in the underground garage. Continue in the Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat until you reach the university site Rectoraat-Technicum-De Brug on the right side.

||Once you have made it to the Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat university site, cross the square in front of the Technicum Building. Then go right at the bicycle stands and you wil see "Ingang Blok 1 en Blok 2". IPEM is located in Blok 2. Take the stairs one floor down: welcome at IPEM!
