Practical Information


Checkin at the venue is at 17:00 on Sunday, November 13.
The scientific part of the lecture week will close on Friday, November 18, in the afternoon.

Late arrivals

If you will arrive late please contact the coordinator in advance so key pick up can be arranged.


The lecture week will be at Kloster Marienburg >, 56856 Zell, at the Mosel River. Directions can be found here >.


We travel by chartered bus to Kloster Marienburg. Details including schedule and departure point can be found here >


Accomodation is mostly in twin bed rooms.


Special food requirements (vegetarian, other) should be communicated to the coordinator in advance. Vegetarian food is available for every meal. Full board is included in the lecture week.

What to bring


The lecture week will be very informal, so only casual attire necessary. Please plan for an outdoor social activity.


All rooms have linen and towels, no need to bring them. Please bring your soap and hair dryer if needed.


A WLAN access point is available. Please bring your own laptop.


Each participant will contribute in a presentation. Subjects are given in due time before the lecture week (see above). They will be arranged by the lecturers. The presentation will not be on the own scientific work of the participant but will be connected to the topic of the lecture week. A laptop and projector will be available. Presentation time is 30 minutes including discussion.


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 lecture week. Please ask the secretary of your working group for the appropriate form.
