The PATA Days conference – latest news and info

Dear friends and colleagues,

it’s only few days to go until the PATA Days conference will start with the icebreaker party at the Kuckucksnest in Aachen! We have more than 100 registered participants and we are looking forward an exciting meeting. If you attend the first two days 9-10 October, don’t forget to book a hotel in Aachen on your own, it’s time now.

You don’t have a hotel yet? Check out this pdf: Hotels and Travel.

Coming soon!



We have updated the program, the latest version is here (pdf): PATA days almost final program.

Posters and talks

Please prepare your posters in portrait format, not exceeding A0. For presentations we are able to deal with PPT, PPTX, PDF, Open Office formats and maybe Klaus will sacrifice his Macbook for Apple data formats, too.
