    Practical Information


    Checkin is on Sunday, September 22, in the late afternoon.
    The scientific part of the lecture week starts on Monday morning and closes on Friday afternoon.

    Late arrivals

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


    The lecture week will be at Haus Tabor in Vallendar. The address is: Am Marienberg 5, D-56179 Vallendar.
    More information can be found here >.


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


    Accomodation is mostly in twin bed rooms.


    Full board is included in the lecture week. Special food requirements (vegetarian, other) will be arranged. Please contact the coordinator in advance.

    What to bring

    Clothing: The lecture week will be very informal, so only casual attire necessary. Please plan for an outdoor social activity (depending on weather).
    Linen/towel: 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 will be given in due time before the lecturer week. They will be arranged by the lecturers. Hence 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. In addition flip charts 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.
