    Practical Information


    The lecture Week starts with a common dinner on Sunday and ends Friday afternoon.

    Late arrivals

    If you will arrive late or on you own please contact the coordinator in advance so key pick up can be arranged.


    The lecture week will be at Kloster Marienburg, 56858 Zell, at the Mosel River.


    We travel by chartered bus to the venue. Details including schedule and departure points will be announced.


    Accomodation is mostly in twin bed rooms.


    Special food requirements (vegetarian, other) will be arranged on the first evening. Full board is included in the lecture week.

    What to bring

    Clothing The lecture week will be very informal, so only casual attire necessary. Please plan for an outdoor social activity.

    Linen/towel/utilities Linen and towels will be provided. Please bring your own soap and hairdryer if needed

    Extras Please bring a torch (BE: flashlight) !!!


    A WLAN access point is available.


    Each participant will contribute in a presentation. Subjects will be given in due time before the lecturer week. They will be arranged by the lecturers. The presentation will not be on the own scientific work of the participant but will be connected to the topic of the lecture week. A laptop and projector will be available. Presentation time is 30 minutes including discussion.


    All basic expenses are covered by H-QM. You only have to pay for local expenses (drinks,etc.). All meals are included.


    Though this trip will not generate any costs for your supervisor or group please do not forget to file a trip request so you are covered by insurance during the lecture week.
