Lohr am Main
Lohr am Main lies in Lower Franconia and is known as the „Gateway to the Spessart“. The town was settled no later than the 8th Century and by its first documentary mention in 1295 it was already the main centre of the county Rieneck (comital domain within the Holy Roman Empire). Lohr am Main offers a mediaeval town center with beautiful half-timbered houses and of course the magnificent neighbouring „Spessart“ forest in the „Mainviereck“ (a square region bounded on three sides by the river Main). Fun fact: the „Lohrer Schloss“ is said to be Snow White´s possible birth place.

On Monday we will start with a “Good scientific practice” course for PhD students.
Contribution by principle investigators of the TRR130
4 slots (each 1 hour) are reserved for contributions by PIs. The topics of these concept talks/seminars are free. Interested PIs can state so in the registration form and choose the duration of the talk/seminar (15-45min). If there will be more suggestions than time slots the PhD students will have the opportunity to decide which topics are most interesting/helpful for them. We are looking forward to many interesting contributions.
PhD presentations and Poster session
Half of the PhD students will present their project and data via poster while the other half will give a talk (15 minutes + 15 minutes discussion). Please send your abstracts by email until January 31st.
Round Table Discussions
If possible all PIs and PhD students should participate at the round table discussions. This event should give the possibility to discuss PhD projects, specific data, problems or methods in small groups of PIs and PhD students. We will set up 6 discussion groups. A maximum of 12 projects can be discussed (2x 45 min). PhD students can state in their registration who they would like to discuss their project with the most. Deadline for project abstracts is January 31st.
TAC meetings will be possible on Tuesday and Wednesday. The meetings have to be organized by the PhD students. PhD students who are planning a TAC during the BCWS have to confirm the meeting until January 31st by sending the preferred date for the meeting by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Walk & Talk
On Wednesday we reserved one hour after lunch to give you the opportunity to take a walk through the surroundings of the Hotel Franziskushöhe while discussing a PhD students project or a specific scientific topic. Participation is optional and discussion topics are decided by the individual walking groups themselves.
