Venue

The workshop will take place at the Swiss-Belhotel du Parc Baden.

From the airport: take a train to Baden. From the train station it is either a short walk (10 mins) or bus 3 to Kurtheater. For your best connections, use the SBB app or sbb.ch

Baden has thermal springs, if you are looking for a relaxing evening activity, we can certainly recommend the newly opened baths, so you might want to bring a swimming suit with you.

What to bring with you

This workshop is not only based on lectures/tutorials etc but also the participants have time to explore all the SoFi features and get proficient with PMF. Therefore, we kindly ask you to bring along:

  • Laptop with Igor 8 or Igor 9 pre-installed. For those who do not have SoFi yet, we can provide a temporary ME-2 solver and SoFi Pro license.
  • If available your own dataset. Also bring along external measurements, such as temperature, trace gases ect. If you don’t have data, we will provide an ACSM dataset that you can work with and can download here (link will follow).

Accommodation

We offered the option to book a hotel room at the place of the workshop. The room at the hotel includes breakfast (6:30 – 10:00) and a so-called “City Ticket”. The “City Ticket” allows for free public transport within Baden (zones 530 and 570), and some discounts for local businesses.

Costs

The workshop fee as well as the accomodation has to be paid in advance. We will send out personalized invoices to all participants, please see conditions there. Some personal expenses during the workshop should be expected. The workshop fee includes the workshop costs, coffee breaks and lunch (drinks not included).
