Colloquium organization

The Colloquium takes place of the "Alte Universität" (Rheinsprung 9). It will start at 09:20 and continue until 18:00. We plan to have one invited talk in the morning and one in the afternoon, two poster sessions and two sessions of contributed talks. For the oral sessions, we have reserved two rooms, so that we could make two parallel sessions. This gives us the opportunity to stage up to 16 twenty-minute contributed oral presentations (15+5min), cf. preliminary schedule. The Colloquium is intended to be an informal get-together, much like in the past years, see the photos from 2007 and 2006.

Colloquium fees

There are no colloquium fees: the colloquium is free of charge.


We can recommend the Hotel Bildungszentrum 21 and Hotel Rochat, not far away from the workshop venue.
