Conference Venue

Historical Observatory

The first Annual Open Workshop of the EU FP7 project HELCATS is held at the Convention Centre by the Historical Observatory.

The Convention Centre by the Observatory is an outbuilding of the Historical Observatory. The University Observatory – which served as the place of residence and work of famous scholar Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777–1855) for several decades – is a building of unique importance for the history of science. Göttingen University has recently renovated it according to the original plans; the reconstruction which was directed by the building management department was completed in October 2008 after one-and-a-half years of work. This eminent European monument of science today houses the Lichtenberg-Kolleg and the Göttingen graduate schools.
