            Instructions for Mini-Symposia

            A mini-symposium consists of one or more sessions of 6 time slots each (one time slot equals to 20 min. incl. discussion). Within mini-symposia keynote-lectures equal to a total of two time slots can be assigned. The (co-)organizers of the mini-symposia are responsible for the scientific content. They invite participants and review the submitted abstracts.

            Rainer-Dierichs-Platz 1
            34117 Kassel

            The conference banquet on Thursday 29th of August will take place in the "Südflügel Kulturbahnhof". This cultural stain was built in the late 18th century and reconstructed, after a bombing in World War II, in the 60s. The station always hosts various exhibitions during the Documenta. The famous sky walker is one of the exhibitions of the Documenta in 1992.
