Workshop Location
The workshop will be held at the Informatics building, Turing-Hörsaal, located at Hubland campus of University of Würzburg and can quickly be reached by public transport from the city center.


Würzburg can be easily approached by frequent trains directly from Frankfurt airport in about one hour. Two ICE high speed train routes cross pass through Würzburg, as well as three important German motorways, the A3, A7 and A81. Thus access by train or car is very efficient and easy.


The city is located near the center of Germany and offers a wide range of recreation and leisure activities together with theaters, open-air concerts, and wine festivals. Located at the shores of the river Main, vineyards, castles, medieval cities and baroque residence palace are characteristic for the region. Würzburg offers a broad range of accommodations facilities at all costs.

Julius-Maximilians-University Würzburg (JMUW)

The university was first founded in 1402, enrolls today more than 25000 students in 10 faculties and hosts well known research institutions. 14 Nobel Prize winners worked there, most notable among them being Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, the discoverer of the X-rays.

Residence Palace

The bishop's residence palace is one of Europe’s most renowned baroque castles and it is recognized by UNESCO as a world cultural heritage site. The spectacular interiors include the grand staircase, the chapel, the grand salon and the wine cellar. The building was dubbed the "nicest parsonage in Europe" by Napoleon. It was heavily damaged in World War II, and restoration has been in progress since 1945. The Garden uses the fortification’s differences in height to create a very special landscape. Near the residence itself, the garden is designed in a very formal, baroque style. Farther away, the style changes to an English garden with small forests and meadows.
