Locations and Accommodation
The summer school will be held at the ICBM-TERRAMARE in Wilhelmshaven, northwest Germany. ICBM is part of the Carl-von-Ossietzky-University of Oldenburg and has facilities at three locations, Oldenburg, Wilhelmshaven, and on the island of Spiekeroog.
Participants will live in the ICBM guest house in Wilhelmshaven which is located directly next to the institute. It provides multi-bed rooms (2-6 beds) and a fully equipped kitchen for self-catering. Breakfast and dinners should be prepared jointly by participants. Lunches will either be self-organized or provided. Otherwise restaurants and snack bars are found in the neighbourhood. We consider the social interaction among participants with different nationalities and diverse schientific and cultural background as an important aspect of the summer school.
Due to ongoing construction work at ICBM, the lectures, seminars and labs will take place in the seminar room of Wilhelmshaven Aquarium/Bullermeck. The aquarium is located just a few steps away from ICBM on the other side of Helgolandkai. Wilhelmshaven is starting and end point for the excursions. End of the second week we will visit ICBM in Oldenburg, where we will have the final presentations and the farewell (transport will provided).
