Practical Information

Here is a selection of useful information to make your trip to and stay in Berlin as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Hybrid conference: Virtual and innovative formats

The current challenges in connection to the COVID-19 pandemic are extraordinary and we are making contingency plans in case it prevents our conference from being held as planned in October. We are exploring ways of holding a hybrid conference and complementing the live conference with digital formats, such as video streams and webinars, and virtual participation opportunities for both conference participants and speakers to enable remote participation. We are also exploring possibilities for holding a fully digital conference in case this turns out to be our only option. In light of this, we welcome in particular contributions that can be adapted for showcasing and presenting digitally while engaging remote audience meaningfully.
