Conference Dinner
Thursday August 25th, 2022 after the SIG8 Business Meeting (starting at around 20:00)
French Pavilion of Restaurant Alte Meister, Theaterplatz Dresden
Tramline 11 Dresden Strehlener Platz to Theaterplatz or Tramline 9 Wasaplatz to Theaterplatz

The conference dinner will take place in a wing of the famous Dresden Zwinger. On this evening you will have the choice be seated in the French Pavilion, or in the Restaurant itself. Furthermore, you may enjoy the company of friends and colleagues either in the very beautiful baroque garden of the Zwing-er or in its beautiful Nymph Bath. The Nymph Bath in the Dresden Zwinger is one of the most beauti-ful fountains and open space compositions created in the Baroque period. All senses are involved: The eye is delighted by the statues of the more or less clothed nymphs, the ear hears the lovely splashing of the fountains and one feels on hot days the pleasant coolness of the humidity emanating from shady walls.

If you have not registered yet, you may do so through the earli-eapril registration system by August 2nd, 2022.
