From Frankfurt Airport

The international airport Frankfurt Rhein-Main is located 25 km (15.5 miles) from Darmstadt. At the airport, regional bus lines depart from arrivals area B at Terminal 1 and arrivals areas D+E at Terminal 2. We recommend the express bus AirLiner (Terminals 1 and 2), which offers a convenient and fast 30-minute connection from the airport to Darmstadt Hauptbahnhof (main station), Luisenplatz and darmstadtium Congress Centre.

From Darmstadt main railway station and Luisenplatz, public transport trains and busses take you to the TU Darmstadt (campus Stadtmitte) where the MSE Congress takes place.
