    Impressions of the Location


    The main costs for accomodation, meals and room rent / conference fee will get paid globally for all participants from the central SFB account. Please take a little bit of extra money with you because we will not take over costs for certain drinks during the meals and in the afternoon.

    The travel costs can be paid out of the SFB-project-accounts. These costs will get reimbursed as "Workshop"-costs for every participant out of the global means with the current/next "call for funds".

    Although we pay the main costs centrally, you have to register your travel with your local travel department to be ensured during the trip.
