Conference Venue

The Conference will be held at the
Seminaris SeeHotel Potsdam,
An der Pirschheide 40,
14471 Potsdam, Germany.

The Seminaris SeeHotel Potsdam, located directly at the beautiful Templiner lake, is one of the best available workshop hotels in Germany. Is is a resort in the outer area of Potsdam, an old residence town of the Prussian kings with many cultural landmarks, still adjacent and well connected to the German capital Berlin.

In order to provide the best workshop atmosphere, we strongly recommend to accomodate in the workshop hotel.

The next station of public transport is "Potsdam Pirschheide".

When arriving by plane, Schönefeld is the by far better choice: The local train RB23 goes directly from S Schönefeld (5 min walk from the airport) to Potsdam Pirschheide in 45 mins., with a hourly schedule even on sundays.

From Tegel Airport, take bus 109 to S Charlottenburg, then S7 to Potsdam Hbf. (main station) and Tram 91 to Pirschheide. The connection runs every 10 mins. even on sundays, but takes approx. 1,5 hours in total.

From "Potsdam Pirschheide", there is a 10 min walking distance to the hotel, but shuttle bus transfer is organized at Sunday afternoon and on Thursday after lunch for arrival and departure.

Accommodation in the workshop hotel is not included in the conference fee. However, special reduced rates have been negotiated for the participants:

  • 85 Euro per night (incl. breakfast, service, and VAT) for a comfort room with single bed,
