As our regular venue IN-Berlin is inside an "evacuation area for a bomb defusing on Friday by German police":https://twitter.com/polizeiberlin/status/986504518589407232, we're at an alternative venue *only on Friday*

"CCC Berlin e.V.":https://berlin.ccc.de/, Marienstr. 11, 10117 Berlin, GERMANY.
35 52 laforge

The local and regional train station "Friedrichstr" is very close to the event venue.  A variety of trains, S-Bahn as well as U-Bahn (underground) are interconnecting at Friedrichstr.

38 52 laforge
Please note *you must use the exit "Schiffbauerdamm"*, which you can reach exclusively from the western end of the top-most rail tracks of S3/S5/S7/S9, as *it is the only exit that gets you to the northern shore of the river Spree*.  _All other exits of the station will not get you where you need to be!_.

The meeting / seminar / conference room at IN-Berlin is located on ground floor and has windows facing east. In front of those windows is a road + sidewalk which is directly in north-south direction, i.e. it _may_ be possible to set up some (GPS, Thuraya, etc.) antennas on the sidewalk, if required. Some kind of pole+stand is required, though.

48 1 laforge
49 1 laforge
The format of this workshop is not primarily formal lectures/talks.  It's more like "guided discussions", i.e. there are topics and each topic will get an "owner" who should introduce the topic and lead the discussion related to it.
