Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg


Workshop Venue

The workshop takes place in the beautiful small German university town of Erlangen in the local region of northern Bavaria / Franconia.

The lectures, lunch buffets and poster sessions will take place in a newly built lecture hall of the department of medicine of the university of Erlangen, which has all new equipment and which is located in the central part of old-town Erlangen. It is easy to access by foot from the central hotels which we suggest to you on this website and which we book for all invited guests. It is also close to the Erlangen Schlossgarten, which is part of our university and a nice place to be when there is good weather.

The lab tours on the first day (Wednesday) will start with an informal get-together at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light. From there, a transport to the second site of our labs will be organized.

You find all the mentioned venues marked in the google map, which you find below.
