Castle Rauischholzhausen
New trends and open problems in Geometry and Global Analysis




Travel information



  • The blackboards at the Castlle are rather small, so we cannot recommend them for giving a full length talk - they are nice for discussions and answering questions, but that's it. Please prepare your talk as a pdf file.
  • Please do not forget to prepare an additional poster stating the context and your open problems in order to facilitate discussion. Size A2 or A1 is perfect (smaller is fine as well). It can be very similar to the slides, of course; fancy layouting will be welcome, but is not required.
