Conference Location and Accomodation:

Trier is the oldest city of Germany. It has several ancient roman monuments, one of them the black city gate `Porta Nigra', another the thermal spa depicted on the poster for STACS'99. Naturally, there are interesting archeological museums. The conference dinner is planned to be organized in one of the museums. A second evening event - a wine tasting party - will feature famous wine yards at the Mosel river.
The conference takes place in the Ramada Hotel, Trier, a 4-star hotel within walking distance from the old city center.
A single room is available for DM 126.- and a double room for DM 160.- (per night, including breakfast). This special arrangement can be used only when the hotel reservation is made together with the conference registration (see below).

Registration Fee:

The registration fee is DM 450.- (early registration until January 31, 1999), or DM 520.- after January 31. It covers attendance to the talks, proceedings, refreshments, lunches, the conference dinner, and the wine tasting party. The student registration is DM 220.- and covers only attendance to the talks, refreshment, lunches, and the wine tasting party.
