The EDisCS workshop will be at the Ringberg Castle in Bavaria from the 13th-18th of June 2004. Information about the castle can be found at the castle web page. There you can find directions to the castle and information about internet connections.
There will be organized bus transportation from Munich to Ringberg and back. On the 13th, the bus will make a stop at the airport at Terminal 1, Bereich C, in the arrivals section. There is a special bus parking place there that it will use. The bus company is Hemmer & Franz and there should be a sign on it for Max-Planck-Institut. The bus will get there at 16:15 and will depart promptly at 16:30. After stopping at the airport, the bus will make a stop at MPA at around 16:50 followed immediately by a stop at Maibaum in Garching before heading to the Castle. We will try to wait for people, but if you are late and miss the bus you'll need to get to Ringberg by yourself, please see the Ringberg web site for directions on how to get there via public transportation.
On the 18th the bus will be leaving
Ringberg at around 14:00 and going back to MPA. Again a stop will
be made at Maibaum and also at the U-bahn station for those of you who
will be heading into Munich afterwards or staying at the Ibis or Etap
