The scientific program of the power week starts with a joint lunch on Tuesday at 12:30.
Please arrive in time. The power week will close on Saturday afternoon around 15:00.
If you will arrive late please contact the coordinator in advance.
The power week will be held at Landhotel Waldhaus, An der Ringelshöhe 7, 35321 Laubach.
Please arrange for individual travel to the location. We encourage to use public transport or car pools.
If you decide to go by public transport: The closest train station is Grünberg (Oberhessen). There are connecting
trains from Frankfurt via Giessen. The bus stop for the venue is Waldhaus Laubach with (not very frequent)
bus service from Grünberg. An alternative would be to pool for a taxi from Grünberg.
Accomodation is mostly in twin bed rooms.
Special food requirements (vegetarian, other) should be communicated to the coordinator in advance.
Full board is included in the power week.
What to bring
The power week will be very informal, so only casual attire is necessary.
Wireless internet access is available. Please bring your own laptop.
All basic expenses are covered by HGS-HIRe.
You only have to pay for local expenses (drinks etc.). All meals are included.
Though this trip will not generate any costs for your supervisor or group please
do not forget to file a trip request so you are covered by insurance during the
power week. Please ask the secretary of your official supervisor at the university
for the appropriate form.
