General information:
The meeting is open to all SPP members and associated groups and aims to provide a
discussion point for data and especially to intensify collaborations and elucidation of common
principles. The meeting is especially for the Ph-D students and the young scientists and is
thought offer a platform for discussion of their recent data.
Venue of the meeting:
The meeting of SPP1782 will take place from March 21st to 22nd at the Zentrum für Operative
Medizin (ZOM), Oberdürrbacherstraße 6, 97080 Würzburg.
Just next to the ZOM there is a big parking space which will allow easy parking. I will try to
get cheaper exit tickets for those who will come by car.
The venue can also be reached from the city with a 30-35min walk or by Tram 1 and 5
(Direction Grombühl/Universitätskliniken; exit Robert Koch Straße Universitätsklinikum
Bereich B; the way to ZOM will be signed out)
Accomodation:
The accomodation must be booked by yourself. Below you find three suggestions for hotels
in Würzburg, there are of course numerous others located in the city. The G-Hotel is the
nearest to the ZOM which can be easily reached in a 15-min walk. The other hotels are
located more in the in the center of the city and therefore in a 25-40 min walk to the ZOM.
