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

This year's workshop will focus on Nanopore direct RNA sequencing.
We'll start on Monday with a live in-field sequencing demonstration of a "mystery sample", during which participants get some hands-on experience using the MinION sequencer.
Tuesday will provide the theoretical background on the previous day's experiment and introduce the Nanopore toolchain -- including preprocessing, mapping and assembly -- and focusing on typical strengths and weaknesses of the technology.
On Thursday we'll explore the data generated on day 1 using the skills obtained on day 2. Great fun is to be expected.
There won't be any Uni-Leipzig provided shuttles between Hrensko and Doubice. Please be self-organized!
It is possible to make use of the "Sachsen Ticket", which is valid for five people and possibly the cheapest way to travel to/from the meeting within Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia.
