Invitation to the 20th 3D Congress of the DGS
25 – 27 May 2018 in Berlin
Dear members, dear 3D enthusiasts,
On 28 December 1927, “inbetween the years” as it were, the German Society for Stereoscopy was founded in Berlin and started its first year of activities in the service of stereoscopy in 1928. Hence, we are going to celebrate our 90th anniversary in 2018 and for this reason return with the 3D congress to the place of our foundation: to Berlin!
The congress will take place in the theatre of the youth centre Alte Pumpe. The courtyard of Alte Pumpe is located on Lützowstraße in Berlin Tiergarten, right in the middle of the city. As the crow flies, it is about 700 m to Nollendorfplatz, 1 km to Potsdamer Platz, 1.2 km to the posh shopping centre KaDeWe or 1.8 km to the Brandenburg Gate.
On site, there is also the café and restaurant Alte Pumpe, which is going to take over the catering during the congress.
500 metres down the street, the Hotel Berlin, Berlin is located. We have reserved a number rooms at the price of € 109 for a single room or € 129 for a double room including breakfast. You may reserve your room until 26 April by calling +49 30 2605 2700 and quoting “DGS” or by sending a fax to +49 30 2605 39 2715.
