Social Events

To further facilitate communication between participants we have scheduled a number of social events including a welcome reception, conference dinner, barbecue, dragon boat race, and farewell party. Please join our socials!


Welcome Reception

Saturday, September 3, 2022

The welcome reception will be held at our conference venue, the Herrenkrug Parkhotel. Welcome drinks and snacks will be served. There will also be a representative of the City of Magdeburg to inform you about touristic opportunities in the area.



German Barbecue

Sunday, September 4, 2022

The barbeque will take place on the terrace and in the garden of the Herrenkrug Parkhotel. Apart from classic items (including vegetarian) some German specialties will be barbecued.



Conference Dinner

Monday, September 5, 2022

This dinner will be arranged in the ballroom of the Herrenkrug Parkhotel. The hotel is famous for its delicious cuisine which has won several awards (including Gault Millau).



Dragonboat race

Tuesday, September 6, 2022

Because our first dragonboat race at ICAC 2014 was such fun, we (you!) will do it again. Dragonboats (including guides) will be waiting for you on one of Magdeburg's waters (Lake "Salbker See"). You need to paddle! Fun is guaranteed, for some impressions click here! Please note: It could happen that you get a little bit wet; so, please bring appropriate clothes with you. Please also note: The dragon boat race is only possible for those participants who are able to swim. Facilities for changing clothes are provided. We will arrange a bus transfer to the Lake "Salbker See" and back to the Herrenkrug Parkhotel. For those of you who do not like to paddle, there is the opportunity to watch the race from stands. Also, barbeque food and drinks will be available for all.



Farewell Party at Turmpark

Wednesday, September 7, 2022

The farewell party will take place in Magdeburg's unique Turmpark which is beautifully set close to the Elbe river. There will be food and drinks and live music performed by the locally well-known band "Tänzchentee". Be prepared to dance! There will also be the opportunity to visit the top of the Turmpark tower. Again, there will be a bus transfer to the Turmpark and back to the Herrenkrug Parkhotel.
