Practical Information


The scientific program of the lecture week starts with a welcome and introduction session on Monday, July 20, at around 11:30. Distribution of the rooms and check-in will be on Monday on arrival at the venue. The lecture week will close on Friday, July 24, in the late afternoon.

Late arrivals

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


The lecture week will be at Kloster Marienburg, D-56856 Zell, at the Mosel River. The website of the venue can be found here >.


Travel is organized individually.


Accomodation is mostly in twin bed rooms. If you want to share the room with a particular roommate, please inform the coordinator in advance.


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 necessary. Please plan for an outdoor social activity: A guided vineyard tour is envisaged.
Linen/towel/others: 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. Each presentation will be prepared by a team of two participants. A laptop and projector will be available. Presentation time is about 25 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.
