The venue for 5 December will be in Berlin at the Berlin Wall Memorial Bernauer Strasse, with the conference starting in the late afternoon with a welcoming speech and reception.
The venue for 6 December will be on the premises of Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU).
We kindly ask all participants to travel to Cottbus after the reception and to book a hotel room in Cottbus for the night.
