Lab tour at HZDR

For those participants being interested we could offer a lab tour for visiting the MHD department at HZDR. Because of the full conference program such a tour would be possible only before or after the symposium.

The following time slots are available:

Tuesday, September 18th, 13:00 - 16:00 or
Friday, September 21st, 17:00 - 19:00

All those interested should contact the persons from the local organizing committee per email before September 1st. Please give us your preference with respect to one of these dates.
