The workshop will be held on the science campus “Albert Einstein” on the Telegrafenberg in Potsdam. This is a historic location in a park-like setting with several research facilities. The cities of Potsdam and Berlin provide excellent opportunities for excursions in the nearby area.
How to get there?
The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences has a good connection to the railway service and to the international airports of Berlin. From Berlin there is easy access by public transport. The "Albert Einstein" campus is just a 15-minute walk from the Potsdam Main Train Station.
A block of rooms has been reserved in the Mercure Hotel Potsdam City **** (closest to the conference venue, near the main railway station and within walking distance (20 min) to GFZ):
Mercure Hotel Potsdam City
Please make your own room reservation. Upon registration you will receive the reservation form (with special room rate!) for the Mercure together with a list and map of all GFZ contract hotels per email.
Please book your room before the booking deadline Sep 30, 2011 (even if the program will not have been finalized at that time; room cancellation is no problem).
