08- 10 July 2019, Freising, Germany


Reactor Tour / Hands-on Workshop on Wednesday, July 10

The tour starts with a bus transfer from the conference venue to the Jülich Center of Neutron Sciences in Garching in the late afternoon. The research neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (MLZ) is a central scientific institute run in cooperation by Forschungszentrum Jülich, Helmholtzzentrum Geesthacht and Technische Universität München housed on the premises of the Research Centre in Garching. The FRM II came into user operation in April 29, 2005 and provides neutrons for science, industry and medicine in four cycles of 60 days a year. After the tour the bus will bring you back to your hotel or the conference venue at around 6 p.m.

As a nuclear facility there are important access rules:

  • Minimum age: 18 years (students aged 16),
  • valid identity card or passport (residence title or driver's license are not enough!)
  • no access to the control zone for pregnant and nursing women,
  • no cameras or cell phones (they have no reception anyway)
  • unfortunately we can not provide a wheelchair access.

Brewery Tour and Conference Dinner on Tuesday, July 9

In the evening on Tuesday, July 9 we‘d like to invite you to a tour through the oldest brewery of the world – Weihenstephan. The tour starts with a visit of the brewery museum ”To the Origin of Beer“. There, you will enjoy a tour through the nearly 1000 years of history of the Bavarian State Brewery of Weihenstephan before continuing to the “sacred territory” - the art of brewing.

After the tour we will get together at the nearby “Bräustüberl Weihenstephan” for a beer-tasting-session from a 0,1l wheat beer glass which you are welcome to take home as a souvenir

The beer-tasting will be followed by a delightful, traditional Bavarian dinner! Please inform us, if you have any allergies or other special needs for food.
