The woodhouses are primitive indeed, walking distance (10 minutes) from
the conference building. Note that there probably is no connectivity
(not even phone) there (last time I checked). There are also some
hotels on and off campus, see e.g.

The supermarket is 5 minutes walking from the woodhouses. They sell
bread, but it is no bakery.

I'm not sure if all the events will take place there, but most of the
conference and meeting rooms in the CC and CS buildings have beamers
installed. Some only have an overhead projector, unfortunately.

If you know which room you'll get for the workshop, and if there's no
beamer installed, I can try to arrange for a beamer -- if I know in
advance of course; no promises :)

Sure, there are quite some students living in Enschede, and hence a lot
of bars that serve a 'daghap' (kind of low budget, but good, food). As
well a number of real restaurants.
If you need any help or more information, drop me a line (contact info
