Registration form

Last update: 2006-10-16

Participants will be supplied with lunch menus on Saturday morning. They should write their name and choice of meal on the front. The menus will be collected during the coffe break starting at 10:20.

Nowadays it seems to be feasible that participants directly contact hotels that offer WEB-pages. Of course, I'll be happy to assist you with your reservation, if necessary.

Here are two hotels we have used successfully on previous occasions for meetings. Both offer special University rates (including breakfast) and are located less then 10 minutes away from the University (walking distance). Please mention "PSSL84" when making reservations to qualify for the special rates.

Hotel Lessing Hof ***, 57 Euro single, please reserve by September 29

CVJM Hotel am Wollmarkt **, 41 Euro single, please reserve by October 2

Special Feature:
Following the positive experience at PSSL83 in Glasgow earlier this year, Bob Coecke has agreed give a three talk overview of recent developments in the categorical approach to quantum informatics. Professor Reinhard Werner, mathematical physicist at the TU Braunschweig with special interest in quantum informatics, will be present as well.

Social Activities:
Friday, 2006-10-13, after 15:30:
Those of you arriving in Braunschweig early enough can drop by the department for some coffee and home-made cakes.

Friday, 2006-10-13, about 19:00:
We are planning to reseve tables in a Thai restaurant for dinner. This is optional, since some participants will only arrive late on Friday evening. The restaurant is called Sri-Thai and located at Wendenstraße 4, near Hagenmarkt.

Saturday, 2006-10-14, 19:30:
The conference dinner will be at an Italian restaurant.

Now the department of Theoretical Computer Science is located within the new Computer Science Center at Mühlenpfordstr. 23, near the tram station "Mühlenpfordstr." (trams no. 2, 4, 6, 7). Here is a city map to aid your orientation.

The nearest airport to Braunschweig is located in Hannover, about 60 km to the West. You will need to take a train to Hannover's main train station (about Euro 2.50) and then board a train to Braunschweig (about Euro 9 one way, unless you want to ride an ICE train; these require a supplement of about 6 Euro). Of course, you can also rent a car in Hannover. Alternatively, Berlin is located about 200 km East of Braunschweig.
