We are pleased to invite and welcome you to the next IAVE meeting on June 8-9 at Baden-Baden in Germany. The meeting takes place one day before the 2016 EASE meeting at Strassbourg in France and is preceded by an evening reception. Strassbourg is just a one hour trip away from Baden-Baden. [Registration for the IAVE meeting is free; IAVE members can register for the EASE meeting at the member rate.]
The famous spa of Baden-Baden is located in the south west of Germany on the hillsides of the Black Forest near the River Rhine and the border to France. By car, Baden-Baden is on the A5 motorway from Frankfurt to Basel. There is a direct train connection (1.5 h) from Frankfurt International Airport. The regional Baden Airport is only 20 min away, and connects Baden-Baden directly to Berlin, Hamburg, London and Rome, and, via Berlin, to other European capitals.
The reception and meeting place in Baden-Baden is the historic villa Palais Biron, lying just outside the city centre on the Lichtental alley.
We made reservations for expected 25 delegates at the "Hotel am Sophienpark" which is situated in the city center. The rooms are blocked until March 2016. Afterwards delegates must book via the common booking sites.
We thank our sponsors WILEY, ELSEVIER, SCHATTAUER and HIPPIATRIKA for their generous support. Find more information on the scientific program me in the coming mail or on the IAVE website.
We look forward to your registration. Come to Baden-Baden, attend a unique IAVE meeting, and benefit from an interesting scientific and social programme. Extending your stay you may enjoy the famous spas, the historic casino, or the lovely wine region of Baden-Baden. Find more information on the short video in your language on www.baden-baden.de.
