Arrival and departure days

Workshop location

The workshop will take place in the Mathematical Institute, which is located in the Bunsenstrasse. It is in 10-15 minutes walking distance from the train station and only a few minutes by foot away from the town center.


Participants of this workshop get a reduced rate at Leine Hotel. A certain number of rooms will be reserved until the end of February. This hotel is close to the railway station, but in longer walking distance (20-30 minutes) from the Mathematical Institute and the town center. There are other hotels closer to the town center, but they are more expensive. Please check the standard hotel reservation internet sites.
Some participants will be accommodated in a guest house of the Max Planck Institute. Unfortunately there will not be enough space for all. Those staying in the guest house should be aware of the fact that no breakfast will be served there.


There are several places close by to get a meal (lunch or dinner) for a reasonable price (starting from about 5 Euros). Typical meals in restaurants (for lunch or dinner) are in a range of 10 - 20 Euros.
Across the street from the Mathematical Institute is the restricted area of the DLR (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt). We will be allowed to use its canteen (which serves very good food for a low price) for lunch during the three workshop days. Please note that this involves some security arrangements (which will mostly be taken care of by the organizers, you'll need a special badge), since the DLR raised its security level recently and the public is not allowed to enter this area.

Conference dinner

On Thursday evening we will meet in the Restaurant Lehmofen, Angerstraße 8, Location via Google Maps.
The prices of meals and drinks can be seen here: Lehmofen.
Please make your choice of main dish (number 40 to 122) already on Wednesday and write the corresponding number in the list that will be on display in the lecture room.
