WIFI is available in Hotel Jef, but might not cover all rooms equally.

Scientific Program

It is possible for every participant to present his/her scientific work. All diploma, master and PhD students should give a talk. This is not only a burden but also a good chance to present your scientific results to Peter, Ivo, Rolf and all the others of the Bompfünewerer consortium at the same time. We will have four kinds of talks:

A guide which talk format is the right for you can be found here.

A meaningful (preliminary) title should be given in the registration process in order to schedule talk sessions.

As usual, we provide a video projector (with VGA port) and a laser pointer for the presentations. If you cannot provide your talk as a PDF on USB stick, please bring all necessary equipment with you.

Approximate time table can be found here.


The Herbstseminar will host a hands-on workshop on Galaxy this year, which will consist of two sessions. The workshop is organized by Matthias Bernt and Jörg Fallmann . For further information, please contact .

Session 1: Galaxy 101

We will show how to: Furthermore we will show you how to obtain further information.

Session 2: How to integrate tool XYZ (e.g. your tool) into galaxy

We will show you how a command line tool can be integrated into Galaxy: Please bring your own Laptop to both sessions.
