Equipment and facilities Information on the equipment of the lecture room can be found here.
Discussion rooms: Various smaller rooms will be available for discussions. These are equipped with metaplan boards and flip charts.
Computer access in Bad Boll: There is a computer room with two PCs and a printer, near the lecture room. In that part of the building, there will be WLAN access, and also upstairs in the 'Cafe Heuss', where many of us will spend time anyway during breaks and in the evening.
Moreover, most of the guest rooms have computer access, using an ethernet cable, which you may bring, or borrow from the reception (deposit required).


Time and Venue The workshop will begin on Monday, March 25, around noon (first lecture after lunch), and end on Thursday, March 28, at lunch time.
It will take place at the Evangelische Akademie Bad Boll (on their website, a varying amount of information is available in nine languages).
Here is a flyer (in German) describing this conference centre.


How to get there A flyer with useful information can be found here.

There will be a shuttle bus service from the University of Stuttgart, see below for more information. Due to insufficient interest, there will be no organised shuttle bus to/from Göppingen (IC station). However, there is a public bus from Göppingen to Bad Boll which runs fairly frequently, see here for more information.
Bus from Stuttgart: Time: Monday, March 25, leaving at 11.15am (journey time approximately 45 minutes). Location: University of Stuttgart, Campus Vaihingen, in front of hotel Commundo. How to get there: A map of the university campus can be found here, the bus location being marked by 'B'. If you are arriving by S-Bahn from Stuttgart main station, then you should take the exit at the back (in the direction of travel) of the train. The exit is marked 'A' in the campus map (if you take the other exit you will get out at the green circled "S" on the map). After taking the escalators up, follow the signs towards "Commundo Hotel".
If you miss the bus, you should take a train to Göppingen and then take a bus (see here how to get there).
Bus to Stuttgart: Time: Thursday, March 28, leaving at 14:00 (journey time approximately 45 minutes). Location: University of Stuttgart, Campus Vaihingen, in front of hotel Commundo.

Here is arrival information provided by the conference centre. The closest airport is Stuttgart. Frankfurt airport is a little more than an hour distance by train from Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof.
