The meeting will be hosted at HEAnet.

The nearest airport is Dublin Airport, with many flights from European destinations.

The easiest way to get from the Airport to the venue is the Dublin Bus Airlink, 747 and 757 routes, which between them run every 10-15 minutes throughout the day. 747 stops, 757 stops. The journey should take about 20-25 minutes. A single ticket is €7, a return ticket €12.

To get these buses: at terminal 1, leave departures via the left hand door, and cross the road; at terminal 2, go through the tunnel directly in front of you, down the stairs, and go to the stop for Airlink 747/757. The nearest stop to the venue is North Wall Quay (IFSC) - directions to HEAnet, directions to Hilton Garden Inn.

(These are the green buses; the blue Aircoach buses also stop in the city centre, but further from the venue.)

Note that the STF meeting, which takes place immediately after the SIG-PMV meeting, is in a different venue a few minutes walk away.
