In the rooms of [http://www.in-berlin.de/ IN-Berlin e.V.], Lehrter Str. 53, 10557 Berlin, Germany, the Universe.
26 1 laforge
27
The meeting / seminar / conference room at IN-Berlin is located on ground floor and has windows facing east.
28
In front of those windows is a road + sidewalk which is directly in north-south direction,
29
i.e. it may be possible to set up some (GPS, Thuraya, etc.) antennas on the sidewalk, if required.
30
Some kind of pole+stand is required, though.
31
32
== Format ==
33
34
The format of this workshop is not formal lectures/talks.  It's more like "guided discussions", i.e. there are
35
topics and each topic will get an "owner" who should introduce the topic and lead the discussion related to it.

=== Dinner ===
119
120
Last year there were some complaints that dinner was not organized.  Even if there is no sponsoring, it would have been useful to
121
at least have some reservations.  We will take this recommendation and organize something.
