Information Regarding Scientists from Russian Institutions

As a result of the Russian attack on Ukraine, the German Research Foundation (DFG) has decided that scientists with an affiliation at a Russian institution cannot participate in person in any of MIAPbP's programs or topical workshops. There is, however, the possibility to participate online. If you have further questions, contact workshop(at)


Please arrange your accommodation according to your preferences. MIAPbP provides a list of recommended accommodation options approx. 5 months before the start. In case you need help with finding an appropriate accommodation/communication with the hotel/accommodation please do not hesitate to contact the MIAPbP staff at

Housing options range from hotel rooms with a microwave and a fridge to 2-room apartments with integrated kitchen; all premises include a private bathroom as well as supply of bed linen towels and - in case they have a kitchen - kitchen equipment for the indicated number of persons. All premises are smoke free.

Beware of spam mails advertising hotel discounts! Unfortunately we have been targeted by a fraudulent email account that pretends to make travel arrangements in MIAPbP's name. We do not make travel arrangements though nor do we work with a travel agency. Their goal is to get hold of your credit card information. So please be aware of emails from "" or a similar sounding source. Please do neither respond to their email nor click on any link in said email.
