The conference will be held at the Activity Center in National Yang Ming University (NYMU), which is a research university famous for her genome research and brain research. NYMU is close to the Shihpai station on the red line (Danshui Line) of Municipal Rapid Transit (MRT). NYMU is within an 8-minute walking distance to the Shipai station. Alternatively, there are many bus lines, which stop at either the Shipai or NYMU stops, which are within a 5-minute walking distance to NYMU campus. Therefore, it is easy to get access to the campus from different parts of Taipei city.
The campus is built along the hill. After entering the main entrance, you will see the newest building (P3 in the map of NYMU campus) on the right hand side of the road. The major road will turn to the right and slightly uphill. If you follow this road, you will see the conference venue, i.e. the activity center (B5) on the left hand side of the road. If you keep going up, you may reach the fields and tracks (Y12) or a hiking trail to the battleship rock. On the top of hill, you may oversee the great Taipei area. (Map of Campus)
