Practical Information


The lecture week starts with an introduction session on Friday afternoon and will close on Wednesday evening.


The lecture week will be held at the Fantasia Hotel, located in Camyuva/Kemer. Camyuva is located just 5 minutes west of Kemer and east of the antique cities Phaselis and Olympos. The hotel is 55 km south west of Antalya.

What to bring

Clothing The lecture week will be very informal, so only casual attire necessary. We expect temperatures in the low 20. .


WLAN access points are available.


If you are giving a presentation, a laptop and projector will be available. In addition flip charts can be used. Presentation time is 30 minutes including discussion.


All basic expenses are covered by the H-QM research school. You only have to pay for some local expenses. All meals and most drinks 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.
