Lunch tickets for the cafeteria ("Mensa") of the Griebnitzsee campus on the conference days are included with the registration; for workshop participants, this also includes the day of the workshops. With the ticket, you get one of the main dishes (alternatively, a salad from the salad bar) plus a dessert or fruit. An overview of the daily menu is available here. Drinks and other side orders are available for purchase.

Coffee breaks

Registration also includes coffee, snacks and refreshments during the scheduled coffee breaks. Alternatively, attendants can buy their coffee at the ground floor café "Die Bohne" (open until 15:00).


The city of Potsdam, including the area around the conference venue, offers many gastronomic alternatives.

The distance to each restaurant is given in minutes from the conference venue in the Griebnitzsee Campus (as determined by the trip planner); most of them are in the "Nördliche Innenstadt" (northern inner city) area of Potsdam and within walking distance of each other. We recommend that you check the opening hours beforehand and make reservations, especially if you are going with a large group. Finally, please make sure the restaurant accepts your type of credit card, in case you are planning to use one (some will only accept cash).
