Practical Information


Checkin at the venue is on Sunday, November 11, in the late afternoon starting at 17:00.
The lecture week starts with an introduction session on Sunday evening at 19:30.

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 held at the castle Ebernburg >, D-55583 Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg.
Directions can be found here >.


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


Accomodation is mostly in twin bed rooms.


It is possible to have vegetarian meals and lactose free food. Special food requirements (vegetarian, other)
should be communicated to the coordinator in advance. Full board is included in the lecture week.

What to bring

Clothing: The lecture week will be very informal, so only casual attire is necessary. Please plan for an outdoor
social activity (depending on weather).
Linen/towel/others: All rooms have linen and towels, no need to bring them. Please bring your soap and hair dryer (if needed).


Wireless internet access 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). The topics have been arranged by the lecturers. So the presentation will not be on your own scientific work but will be connected to the topic of the lecture week. A laptop and projector will be available. In addition a flip chart can be used. Presentation time is about 20 minutes + 5 minutes 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 official supervisor at the university for the appropriate form.
