From the Hotel to the Conference Venue
You can reach the conference venue within a 10-minutes’ walk from the Hotel Maritim. 

Breakfast will be provided at the participants’ hotels. Coffee breaks and lunch will be served at the course venue. A social dinner for all attendees will take place on Tuesday, April 4, at 8 p.m. at a local restaurant. This is also covered by the organisers. Please inform Chloe Smith ([email protected]) if you will attend this and if you have any dietary requirements.

We will try our best to accommodate special dietary requests if indicated in advance.

For the evenings when an officially organised dinner has not been provided (i.e. on Monday, April 3, and Wednesday, April 5), participants will need to make their own arrangements and cover their meal expenses. Mannheim city center offers a great variety of pubs, cafés, snack bars and restaurants. Here are some agreeable suggestions:

Familienbetrieb (German Restaurant)

La Fenice (Italian Restaurant)

Mosch Mosch (Asian restaurant)
