Haus Ohrbeck can be reached by car. From the intersection Lotte/Osnabrueck 
follow the A30 towards Osnabrueck and leave the highway at Osnabrueck-
Sutthausen (exit No. 17). Turn right and head for Hage
You will find Haus Ohrbeck, a monastery which can't be overseen, after

ordered in advance. Taxis wait outside the stati

The conference will be open for scientists working in this field. Lodging 
is possible in Haus Ohrbeck (limited to 40 persons) or nearby hotels.
Our time schedule allows a limited number of short communications 
(presentation:   10 min; discussion:   5 min). Please submit a title and a
