Warming up - Thursday, April 30

For Thursday night (April 30), we reserved space in five restaurants/cafés, so that those of you who are in town and don't have anything else to do can meet other participants of the conference:

– Sol y Mar (http://www.solymar-leipzig.de/) - Gottschedstraße 4
– Milchbar Pinguin (http://www.milch-bar-pinguin.de/) - Katharinenstraße 4
– Thüringer Hof (http://www.thueringer-hof.de/en/) -  Burgstraße 19
– India Gate (http://indiagate.de/de/) - Nikolaistraße 10
– Telegraph (http://www.cafe-telegraph.de) -  Dittrichring 18 - 20

In each of these places, we reserved a table for 15 people, and at least one of the locals will be there.
They may of course have more space, and if they are too crowded, you may find other people to join you looking for alternatives.
For the other evenings (Friday and Sunday), we ask you to find a restaurant on your own, and we will distribute a list of our favourites.
