Meeting Cost:
$125 (not yet fixed) per person to cover meeting logistics costs.

Travel information:
Best is to fly in to Stuttgart Airport (STR, which is connected
to most European hubs), e.g., flying directly from US to
Frankfurt, Munich or Zurich with a connecting flight to Stuttgart
(e.g., with Lufthansa, or Swiss).
At the airport, you can use all "S-Bahn"s in the direction to
Stuttgart (with final destinations Backnang or Schorndorf)
leaving every 10/20 minutes 5:08am :18, :38, :48 until 10:08pm
and then every 30 min until 0:08am.

Another option is to use the only one direct USA-Stuttgart flight
which is from Atlanta to Stuttgart (Delta).
>From Stuttgart Airport to the hotel, the best and cheapest way is
the "S-Bahn", our light rail system that directly connects the
airport with "Stuttgart University" station (17 minutes ride).
This station is 2 minutes from the hotel and about a 15 minutes
walk from HLRS.

A third option is to fly in to Frankfurt and to use the train to
come to Stuttgart "Hauptbahnhof" (main station). The main station
is also directly connected with "Stuttgart University" (11 min ride).
(This third option may cause trouble because of ongoing
construction work at the main railway station and therefore
late or missed trains to Frankfurt!)

Best regards and thank you for your help in organizing this meeting
