    Details and accommodation

The workshop takes place in the conference castle "Schloss Rauischholzhausen" (property of University of Gießen), located in the green surroundings of Marburg. The property was first mentioned in a charter book of the monastery of Fulda between 750 and 779; the present castle has been built between 1871 and 1878 in the style of an English manor house. We recommend the adjacent English style park for mathematical discussions between the talks.
Arrival is Thursday evening (30.04.2015), departure is Saturday afternoon (2.5.2015).

The workshop is partially funded by the DFG via the SPP "Representation Theory". We shall be able to cover costs for accommodation and full board for ALL participants.


  • All participants will be asked to pay a "drink lump sum" of 15 EUR to the conference secretary Ms. Straßheim upon arrival. This will be used for serving mineral water and "Apfelschorle" in large 1 l bottles to all meals.
    No conference fee has to be paid.
  • The Castle has only a limited number of single rooms (in particular, definitely not for all participants). Hence, we cordially invite you to note on your registration with whom you may be willing to share a room (separate beds). Many of the double rooms are in fact nicer than some single rooms, because the largest rooms in the castle were transformed into double rooms! We will try to accommodate everybody appropriately; in particular, late cancellations will be taken into account to put as many people as possible into single rooms.
  • Being a conference hotel in a small village, the Castle has no night concierge. If you arrive late at night, please make sure to have the cell phone number of a participant that you know who will let you in. Once inside, the keys are lying openly at the entrance desk.

The number of participants of the workshop is limited to approx. 65 persons.

As the set of the children participating in the workshop will be non-empty, there is the possibility to arrange child care. Please contact Ilka Agricola if you would like to take this opportunity.
