The meeting / seminar / conference room at IN-Berlin is located on ground floor and has windows facing east.
33 1 laforge
In front of those windows is a road + sidewalk which is directly in north-south direction,
34 1 laforge
i.e. it _may_ be possible to set up some (GPS, Thuraya, etc.) antennas on the sidewalk, if required.
35 1 laforge
Some kind of pole+stand is required, though.

h2. Format
38 1 laforge
39 1 laforge
40 40 laforge
The format of this workshop is not primarily formal lectures/talks.  It's more like "guided discussions", i.e. there are topics and each topic will get an "owner" who should introduce the topic and lead the discussion related to it.
