Satellite Workshops

Date:           September 12, 2017, 1:00 - 6:00 pm                   
                   September 13, 2017, 9:00 - 12:30 pm

Venue:         Central Lecture Hall (ZHG)
                    Georg-August-University Göttingen
                    Platz der Göttinger Sieben 5
                    37073 Göttingen

Please pick your conference badge at the conference registration desk in the foyer of the Central Lecture Hall (ZHG) of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Platz der Göttinger Sieben 5, before attending the workshop.

Goal of the satellite workshops is to provide an informal forum for the discussion of timely research questions and challenges. Controversial issues, open problems, and comparisons of competing approaches are encouraged.

Accommodation and Hotel Reservation:

We strongly recommend early room booking.  The number of available accommodation is limited due to several concurrent events. We arranged for room contingents in a variety of hotels that you may book by yourself by email or phone. Please follow the instructions at our Accommodations Website. We strongly encourage participants to share rooms and to book rooms as a group. Groups of three or four are possible if you book a suite.  The room contingent contains a set of suits and apartments. We emphasize that it will be very difficult to book accommodation beyond the expiration dates.
