For the presentations, we managed to obtain the prestigious Lecture Hall No. 1 in the Hohenheim castle. According to Google Earth, the geographic coordinates are 48°42'43.13'' N, 9°12'48.26'' O.
Here is a campus map with the lecture hall highlighted:

Google Maps will also find the destination "Schloß Hohenheim, Stuttgart".

The city of Stuttgart (585,000 inhabitants) lies in the very heart of Europe, in the south west of Germany. Stuttgart is famous for its automotive industry, with headquarters and production facilities of two important car manufacturers, DaimlerChrysler and Porsche. Interesting sightseeing consequently includes the Mercedes Museum and the Porsche Museum.
Besides industrial highlights, Stuttgart is famous for its ballet and the Staatsgalerie, a museum of modern art founded 1843 and extended 1977-1982 following the concept of Sir James Frazer Stirling.
The second biggest sources of mineral water in Europe (after Budapest, Hungary) are located in Bad Cannstatt, since 1905 a suburb of Stuttgart.
More information on the location can e.g. be found under stuttgart-tourist.de or smart travel germany.

As it turns out, the Cannstatter Volksfest, the second largest beer festival (after the Oktoberfest in Munich) will coincidently take place in Stuttgart during the time of the workshop.
