Getting to the Conference
This is the most convenient mode of transport to the University. From the airport, tell the taxi driver to head to NTU by use of the ECP, then by the PIE, and later to exit via Pioneer Road. The ride to the University should cost about S$35 to S$55 depending on the time of travel, and should take approximately 40 minutes. When you enter the campus, ask the driver to follow the CW2018 or NEC direction signs. The ride from the airport is a scenic spectacle, which will take you through Singapore’s central business district. So do have your cameras ready!
By Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and Bus
Take the MRT from Changi Airport and alight at the Boon Lay station.
From Boon Lay station, make your way to the adjacent bus interchange. Services 179 & 199 will take you in to NTU.
Thereafter, alight at B03 “Hall 2” (2729A) if you take bus 179 and Campus Rider or B09 “Hall 8” (2720Z) if you take bus 199. The 179 and 199 bus trip will cost S$0.90 and should take approximately 20 minutes. After alighting, follow the CW2018 or NEC direction signs. It may be a problem to get a taxi from Boon Lay station after 24:00 hrs.
The conference banquette will be held at Jurong Bird Park on the 4th of October from 5:30pm to 10:00pm. The whole of Jurong Bird Park will be booked for the conference delegates on that evening.
Before the conference dinner, the delegates will enjoy two private bird shows: Talking Birds (30 min) and Mini Bird Show (30 min). Sumptuous international buffet menu with free flow of drinks will be then offered to the delegates in Flamingo Lodge.
