The Bonn-Cologne Graduate School of Physics and Astronomy is organizing a weekend seminar at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef. As in the previous events  we will have a mixture of workshops, evening talks, excursions, etc.

There is no fee, but you will be required to pay your own drinks, and you will also need to cover your travel costs. Lodging will be paid, and as there are evening events it is advisable to stay overnight in the Physikzentrum. We are limited to 90 participants, so early registration is recommended.

Date & Venue

Friday, May 25th to sunday, May 27th 2018 at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef 


Deadline for registration is May 5th, 2018.

For registration please use our form. In case of problems, please contact us by e-mail. During the registration you are asked to select workshops out of each slot. Please select something that is NOT in your field of expertise, as the workshops are intended for non-specialists.
