Welcome Reception (Tuesday, May 3)

The welcome reception is your chance to connect with peers and presenters in a relaxed, informal setting – and the organizing committee’s chance to celebrate your arrival at IEEE DySPAN 2011. It will be held in the Kaminhalle Room at the conference hotel from 19:00 – 21:00, and is included in full, student and life registrations.

Cathedral Tour (Wednesday, May 4)


As part of the social program, we will organize guided tours on the evening of Wednesday, 4th of May, to the historical Cathedral of Aachen. Over a period of 600 years this Cathedral commenced by Charlemagne, and also acting as his burial site, has served as the church of coronation for 30 German kings and 12 queens. Being one of the original UNESCO world heritage sites, the Aachen Cathedral is considered as one of the most important historical landmarks in northern Europe. During the tour attendees will be led through the interior of the Cathedral, including the collections of historical artifacts stored there. The tours will be leaving from the conference hotel, from which the Cathedral is within a walking distance.

The number of places on the tours will be limited, and will be available on a first come, first served basis. More information and registration to the tours will be available at the registration desk of the conference.

Further information on the Aachen Cathedral is available at the following website:

Conference Banquet (Thursday, May 5)


The conference banquet will take place in the Coronation Hall of the historical Aachen City Hall, where kings of Germany traditionally held their coronation banquets over centuries. The banquet will begin with a reception, during which the attendees can visit different parts of the City Hall. Guides will be also available during this part of the event. Following the reception, banquet itself will commence in the Coronation Hall. The banquet is included in full registrations, with additional banquet tickets available through the registration page of the conference.
