Dagstuhl - moving objects

In Dagstuhl for a workshop on moving objects. As usual I'm enjoying myself. It's something special about spending one week (unfortunately only three days in this case since I have to fly to ACM GIS) on a remote castle with lots of smart people and working on new and interesting problems.

This workshop is very diverse with people from computational geometry, data bases, GIScience, geography, visualisation... Which is good in the sense that I learn something new from every presentation. The drawback is, of course, that it's sometimes hard to communicate across areas, but it's getting better and better.

On Wednesday we did the "compulsory" hike and as usual (except when hiking with Helmut Alt) we got lost (I'm not blaming anyone).


  1. a real castle, like one with battlements and a moat around it?

  2. Not exactly. Here's a link to the history of Dagstuhl and the ruins of Dagstuhl Castle. Finally, a photo.
