Sunday registration and reception

Registration opens on Sunday, Sept. 20 at 16:00 at the conference site (dBB Forum).  A reception with buffet will take place between 18:00 and 21:00. 


Conference Dinner and Boat Tour

The conference dinner will be held on Thursday, September 24, 20:00 at the Radisson SAS Hotel next to the Berliner Dom (Berlin Cathedral).

The dinner is preceded by a traditional boat trip. This will take place on the Spree, one of the city’s three rivers. It will lead through the historic part of Berlin starting at Friedrichstrasse, passing the Reichstag, the government district, the Federal Chancellery, the congress hall, the Bellevue Castle and the district of Moabit. The boat will turn at Spreekreuz and return via the museum island, ending at the Berliner Dom, right next to the dinner venue.

The boat  will be berthed at Friedrichstrasse / Am Weidendamm, roughly 700 meters north of the conference venue. The boat's name is MS Sachsen. The landing place can be reached from the conference venue by simply walking north on Friedrichstrasse up to the Spree River or by taking the subway U6 from U Französische Strasse to U Friedrichstrasse (direction Alt-Tegel). The boat tour starts at 17:45 and will take approximately two hours.

Companion program

Dear All

Unfortunately we've only had a handfull of registrants for the SRF 2009 Companion Program and these do not cover the cost of the program. We therefore must cancel the guided excursions. Any funds we have received from you will be credited to your account shortly.

We apologize for this inconvenience and hope that you will still come to Berlin to tour this fascinating city.

Best regards,

Jens Knobloch

Conference Chairman
