Weather in Germany is unpredictable. Most likely, June is sunny and
warm. The statistical average for June is 22/11 degree Celsius (72/52
Fahrenheit) for the daily maximum/minimum temperature. However, one
should also be prepared for very hot (>30 degree Celsius) days, as well as for
chilly evenings or strong rain showers.
We have ''Middle European Summer Time'' (MEST), which is two hours ahead of Greenwich Universal Time (UT).
Voltage is 230V AC. Participants from US or UK, for instance, will need suitable adapters for plugging in their electric equipment.
Wireless LAN will be provided in and around our conference room (WPA encoding, password ''workshop''). Internet access from the hotel rooms may be purchased from the hotel.
Overhead projector and beamer (XVGA resolution, 1024x768) are provided
for the oral presentations. You may connect your own laptop, or use
the conference laptop which is provided and installed with MS Powerpoint
and Acroread. Note that showing Powerpoint files on a foreign computer
sometimes causes troubles, e.g. if non-standard fonts or plug-ins are
used. Safest on a foreign computer are pdf files.
You may upload your presentation in advance to our anonymous ftp server ftp.astro.physik.uni-potsdam.de/incoming (please notify by email after having done so). When bringing along your file on USB-stick or CD-ROM, please upload it to the conference laptop prior to your session.
