Travel Information

Conference Venue


The conference will start on 18 Feb 2013, 09:00, on the campus of the German University of Technology in Oman in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. The university can easily be reached by car from downtown Muscat, it is located right at the end of the new Expressway near Halban, see this map. There is no public transport, and taking a taxi may require some negotiating; finding a taxi to go back to Muscat may be difficult. We therefore strongly recommend to rent a car for participants not living on campus. Please note the speed limit of 120 km/h on highways (closer to cities it is 100 km/h or even 80 km/h); there are plenty of speed cameras along all major roads.

The university guest house is located next to the main building of the university, Car parking is plentiful available.

Arrival at Muscat International Airport

All flights to Muscat arrive at Muscat International Airport (MCT) (sometimes also called Seeb International Airport) situated about halfway between Muscat and the campus of GUtech. It takes about 25 minutes to drive to the campus, a taxi may cost about 15 OMR. Citizens from many countries can get their tourist visa on arrival. Citizens from other countries may contact us to obtain an invitation letter for the visa application.
