Time slot

October 5 -7

People who have tried to book rooms until the 8th have noticed that the price goes up considerably after the 7th.  This is because there is the Anuga, apparently the largest food and beverage trade fair in the world, on the weekend just after the meeting, and the Cologne Marathon just before, so for the hotels we just have the slot we occupy.  The conference will end at around noon on the 7th, so people can leave.  We are sorry that it is so tight, but together with availability of conference rooms and some other boundary conditions this was the only possibility.

Venue

The talks will be in lecture hall VI (HS VI, lower floor) in the University Main Building at Albertus-Magnus-Platz.  This is final now.

Enter through the main entrance on Albertus-Magnus-Platz (make a sharp turn left and take the stairs down to the lower floor) or through the entrance on the other side of the building (this entrance is already on the lower floor). There will be signs to guide you to the lecture hall and the conference desk.

We have reserved three smaller rooms for splinter meetings in the building across Albertus-Magnus-Platz (Philisophikum). The room numbers are S81, S83, and S85.

Accomodation

Two four star hotels will offer rooms at preferential prices when indicating "CCAT-Meeting".  To use this, you have to do the reservation by phone or email, the hotels are not equipped to accept this code on their online reservation side.  Yes, we know, but it is out of our hands.
