Practical information

  • Registration: There is no formal registration, but we would appreciate if you send an email to one of the organizers (klooster at or schuett at in case you plan to join the workshop. A fee of 10 euro will be charged to participants to cover the coffee breaks.
  • Hotels: There are two hotels close to the lecture building (see here).
    However, you might prefer to book a hotel room in Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg or in the centre. It takes approximately 30-60 minutes by public transport to get from this area to the lecture building. There are many hotels is in this area. A relatively cheap option is motel one (in Mitte (Moritzplatz) or Alexanderplatz), an alternative is Hotel 26 in Friedrichshain.
