Registration on Monday morning

We meet for the first time on Monday morning at the ground floor of the MPII (Building E1.4). The registration desk will be open between 8:00 and 8:50 am (there are roughly 100 participants, so please come timely). You will receive your badge and course material. By this time you should be decided whether you are a vegetarian and whether you attend the excursion (see below).

All lectures take place in room HS001 ('Hoersaal 1') of the computer science institute (Building E1.3) right next to the MPII. We meet at 9:00 for a short welcome and the first lecture.

Internet Access

All material necessary for ADFOCS will be provided to you. There is free wifi at the MPII building (wlan-mpi-public).


On Monday evening after the afternoon exercise session we have a welcome reception at the ground floor of the MPII.


On Wednesday afternoon there is an excursion to Abenteuerpark Saarbruecken.

Please keep in mind that comfortable clothing and shoes (sneakers are sufficient) that allow movement will be needed. Also bear in mind that it might rain and pack a water resistant jacket or something similar.

School dinner

On Thursday evening there is the school dinner at the restaurant Tomate 2. You will receive a map.
