It is likely I will be staying within 20-30 km from the convention center.

Where can I find schedule information about the trains or other public transportation lines to Essen? For example: Train line from Duisburg or other nearby cities?

In my trips to Essen, I've always relied heavily on bahn.de. I suspect locals will be able to provide better info.

Yep, I recommend the Deutsche Bahn app. They give info about all possible trains, buses, etc in all of Germany; therefore, no other app is needed Note that it requires internet when using it.

20 – 30 km is a good range.

As other user have already mentioned DB Bahn App is useful or have a look at die App Store for Öffi (if you don’t have an Ö on your keyboard you can spell it Oeffi) this App connects different public transport systems.

Here the truceless armies yet / Trample, rolled in blood and sweat; / They kill and kill and never die; / And I think that each is I. // None will part us, none undo / The knot that makes one flesh of two, /
badge
Sick with hatred, sick with pain, / Strangling -- When shall we be slain? // When shall I be dead and rid / Of the wrong my father did? / How long, how long, till spade and hearse / Puts to sleep my mother's curse?

The Bahn.de app works very well, as does the website if you're at your computer.
