Social Events

Alongside ETAPS 2011 there are four social events offered: Pre- and post-conference workshop dinners on Saturday before (March 26) and after (April 2) the conference week, a Reception on Monday, March 28, and the Main Conference Banquet on Wednesday March 30. While the workshop dinners are only for those who have purchased tickets, the reception is open to everyone. New this year: The banquet is included for everyone who is registered for the main conferences, except students, or who has bought a separate dinner ticket. Availability of additional tickets should be checked at the Registration Desk if desired.  

 

Saturday, March 26: Pre-Conference Workshop Dinner

The pre-conference workshop dinner takes place in the Restaurant “Der Stiefel” which is located in the south-west corner of Sankt Johanner Markt, more precisely at Am Stiefel 2. Dinner starts at 19:30. 

 

Monday, March 28: Reception at Schloss Saarbrücken

  You are invited to the 18th century Saarbrücken castle, the Schloss. This historic landmark is located on the left bank of the river Saar in the center of the town. It combines Baroque style with a modern steel skeleton architecture by Gottfried Böhm. Today the Schloss is the head office of Saarbrücken’s regional administration.

Reception starts at 19:30. From Sankt Johanner Markt, walk towards and cross the river Saar on the stone bridge Alte Brücke, another historic landmark. Then walk up to the Schloss.

 

Wednesday, March 30: Banquet at Völklinger Hütte

The Main Conference Banquet takes place in the Völklingen Ironworks. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a historic steel plant on the banks of the river Saar, in operation from 1883 to 1986. It nowadays serves as a large museum. The Ferrodrome is an interactive science center focusing on the making of iron. Visitors can tour the former production areas. Dinner will be served in the large Blower Hall, inside the current exhibition “The Celts. Druids. Princes. Warriors.” displaying a total of 1650 exhibits.

 Busses to Völklingen leave from campus at 18:20-18:30, thus right after the last sessions of the Wednesday programme. The Banquet starts at 20:00, after touring the site. If you want to go to the site on your own, get your entrance ticket at the Registration Desk. The Völklingen Ironworks is just three easy minutes from Völklingen Railway Station on well sign-posted walkways.
