42nd AES Conference

Conference Venue

The conference will take place at the Campus of the Technical University, Ilmenau. The Goethe and university town of Ilmenau is situated in the foothills of the Thuringian Forest. Surrounded by the mountains of the Thuringian Forest in Germany's "green heart", it makes an excellent base for hiking.

It is also the start of the 20-km Goethe trail following in the footsteps of the great writer and poet.

Ilmenau offers plenty of variety for everyone - cultural enthusiasts, nature-lovers, sporty types and people who enjoy hiking and biking.
Many things distinguish Ilmenau with its population of almost 30,000 - the natural beauty of the Thuringian Forest, an old and attractive town centre, the impressive campus of Ilmenau University of Technology, renowned for research, and the associations with the town's most famous visitor, Goethe.

Because of the short distances between the hotels and the conference building, you can go on a tour of discovery through the historic heart of the town.

Ilmenau University of Technology looks back on a long tradition of higher education in the fields of electrical and mechanical engineering.

Its present degree courses are those which will meet future needs: engineering, mathematics, physics, chemistry, economics and business and social studies, which can all be followed on a compact campus with five faculties.
