Tetra-Symposium 2018


After last years success with the first Tetra-Symposium, most participants agreed that a Tetra-Symposium right the following year would be a great idea: November 2018 the second Tetra-Symposium of the IG-BSSW will take place at the same hotel as last year. In general the organization-team agreed that we will not change the successful outline of the program.

16th to 18th of november 2018.

After you arrive from friday evening 6 pm, the talks will start on saturday morning. Departure is scheduled on sunday around noon.



In Ahrbergen, Lower Saxony. The Parkhotel Ahrbergen (http://www.parkhotel-ahrbergen.de) is a modern four star conference hotel between Hildesheim and Hannover in the heart of germany.

The hotel can be easily reached by car via the Autobahn 7 (Coming from north use exit 59 Laatzen, from south exit 62 Hildesheim-Drispenstedt), we will inform you later how to arrive by public transport. Most likely there will also be the possibility to pick you up on Hildesheim main station at certain times.

A special advantage of the hotel is that the booked rooms will be in a separate building, which features a common room for offhand talks, exchange of fishes and similar ventures. This also means that in the evenings there is no real closing time and that we have room to talk, discuss and enjoy some drinks as long as we want.


What will be offered?

We will meet on friday evening to chat in a relaxed atmosphere, before the talks begin on saturday morning with known german speakers. In the evening there will be sufficient time for conversations and some drinks. On Sunday morning talks are planned until noon.

The conference program will be published here as soon as it is available! Talks will be given in german, however a simultaneous english translation will be available if necessary!

The conference package for saturday contains coffee/tee and a snack in the coffee breaks, unlimited mineral water/apple juice, notepads and pens during the talks on saturday and lunch and dinner in form of a 3-course menu or buffet.
