Meeting Venue and Accomodation

The meeting will be held in the hotel and conference center "Haus der Kirche" in Bad Herrenalb, a small spa town in the Black Forest located 30km south of Kalrsruhe, Germany.

"Haus der Kirche" will serve as accommodation, restaurant and conference venue. This will prompt interaction among the attendees - a fundamental aspect of the meeting - and allow us to include board and lodging in the conference fee. Further  information can be found at the Meeting Venue page. Touristic information, such as hiking possibilities, the thermal spa in Bad Herrenalb or attractive spots in the neighborhood of the conference venue and in Karlsruhe can be found at the Tourism page.
