13th International Conference on Conceptual Structures
Conceptual Structures: Common Semantics for Sharing Knowledge

July 18-22, 2005, Kassel, Germany

Weather in Kassel - and what to bring along

The climate in Germany, according to meteorologists, is moderately humid. This means that it rains all year round. The weather is hottest in July. The weather god is merciful at this time and often sends sunny days with pleasant nights. It will be less hot and humid as in last year's ICCS, but be aware that you will be less protected, too: Air conditionning is less frequent than in the U.S. (especially in university buildings).

The social event will lead us in a leisurely two hour walk through Schlosspark Wilhelmshöhe along the Water Arts. You may want to bring an umbrella in case of rain, and sun protection else. In case of good weather we have the chance to experience the conference dinner just in front of the Orangery on the terrace. We have of course the option to go inside if it is getting too cold. If you are getting cold easily, you may also bring a pullover to appreciate the splendid view as long as possible. The same holds for the garden party on Sunday evening (even though the view in my garden is different from the one at the Orangery).

If you want to go swimming after one of the afternoon sessions, bring a swimsuit, there are several sandy beaches in the Fuldaaue, just 20 min away from the conference by public transport.
