We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin and to our university. The conference will take place right next to Humboldt-Universität’s main campus in the heart of the city, only a five-minute walk from the central Friedrichstraße train and underground station. Our conference venue is located at Dorotheenstraße 24 (the building in the back of the picture below), looking out onto the Hegelplatz park area.

Panels and events will be held inside 16 modern seminar rooms as well as two large auditoria. Spacious hallways offer room for coffee breaks and – on higher floors – great views of downtown Berlin. The downstairs foyer provides space for registration, lunch break and the book publisher fair. Additionally, you are very welcome to appreciate the (hopefully) fantastic summer weather in the park right outside the building.

In case you are looking for a place to stay during the conference, please check the Travel page for more information. We also have some recommendations of external activities and events that might spark your interest, if you have additional time to spare before or after the conference.

Keynote Address

For the opening reception, we are pleased to invite you to Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus, a historic building originally constructed by the Berlin Medical Association in 1915, which was re-opened in 2005 after extensive restoration. We look forward to our keynote speakers Caroline Hau and Khin Zaw Win in the building’s grand auditorium. A video transmission of the entire evening program will also be offered at the main conference venue.
