International Summer School on Basic Concepts and First-Principles Computations for Surface Science:
Applications in Chemical Energy Conversion and Storage

Norderney, Germany, July 21-26, 2013


Accommodation in shared guest house apartments is included in the conference fee.

Conference outing: Wear old socks and sneakers!

There will be a conference outing on Thursday, July 25, 2013. We plan to do a guided tour at the Wadden Sea, i.e. walk over the ocean bed at low tide. This involves crossing small water channels (“Priele”), as well as walking in deep mud. We recommend bringing the following gear for this (actually, quite fun) event:

  • One pair of old socks and sneakers. This is, in fact, essential.
    Going barefoot you risk ugly cuts by sea shells, while loose shoes (rubber boots) will get stuck in the mud.
  • A rain jacket and/or sweater. The tour will start in the late afternoon and it might get chilly.
  • Shorts (at best of fast-drying material). Some passages might be slippery, so count on possibly getting wet. Don’t bring any valuables or stuff that shouldn’t get wet. If you want to bring technical equipment (camera, phone), wrap it into a plastic bag.

After the tour there will be time to return to the accommodation to refresh/change clothes before hitting the conference dinner.

Conference Fee:

  • EUR 700,- (Standard accomodation, see description below.)
  • EUR 850,- (For participants requiring a single room.)
    Please note: We have a very limited number of single rooms available, which will only be assigned for legitimate reasons.

The fee will include lodging (accommodation in shared guest apartments with shower and WC as community facilities) and half-board (breakfast, dinner) from dinner on Sunday to breakfast on Friday, a special conference dinner and outing, as well as the conference material.
