BFGA Conference 2020


October 22-23, 2020


Rauischholzhausen Castle

Important Information

The start of the registration (originally planned for July 15 2020) is postponed to early August due to organizational delays in questions related to planning the conference during the Covid 19 pandemic.
Currently we are confident to hold this entire conference in presence in Rauischholzhausen castle. We will make sure to comply with the given health standards. This includes a distance of 1.5 meters in the conference room, wearing a mask in hallway areas, and serving at meals instead of a buffet. Please note that we may have to react quickly to changes in the regulations from the state or university.
In case we can foresee that the conference might not be possible in presence, we will switch to a digital format.
