13
is limited to about 20.
14
15
== When ==
16
17 37 laforge
'''April 4 through April 7, 2013'''. This is Thursday through Sunday, to ensure people with regular day jobs
18 1 laforge
don't have to take off four but only two days.
19
20 37 laforge
Time: We will '''start at 10am''' in the morning, will take '''lunch break from 1pm to 3pm''' and have an open

25 37 laforge
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 ===
130
131
Last year there were some complaints that dinner was not organized.  Even if there is no sponsoring, it would have been useful to
132
at least have some reservations.  We will take this recommendation and organize something.

143
144
=== Train ===
145
146
You can take long distance trains to ''Berlin Hauptbahnhof'' (main station), which is only 15mins walking (or 3 bus stops) from the venue.
147
148

149
150
Check http://www.bvg.de/ for maps, fares, etc.
151
152
=== Car ===
153
154
There is some public parking in Lehrter Str., where IN-Berlin is located, but it is quite crowded.  Parking your car might
155
not be easy, but not as bad as at C-Base last year.
156
157
== Accomodation ==
158
159

162
163
A more expensive alternative within 15 minutes of walking is [http://www.motel-one.com/en/hotels/berlin/hotel-berlin-hauptbahnhof/#t=hotelinfo Motel One Berlin-Hauptbahnhof]
