The conference will take place in the university's main building, which is located within Rostock's city centre and a short walking distance from tram stop, "Lange Straße." The building is fitted with accessible entries, ramps, elevators, and toilet facilities. There is a map of the venue in the pdf-program.

If you have a particular request with regards to accessibility, please don't hesitate to contact us dgfa2023uni-rostockde.
According to current regulations, you are not obliged to wear masks indoors. However, out of consideration for one another, our recommendations are to wear a mask in enclosed spaces, to maintain distance, to ensure thorough handwashing, and to cough or sneeze into a tissue. In seminar rooms, please ventilate regularly or simply leave windows open. Speakers may, of course, take off their masks if they feel comfortable doing so.
In cooperation with Rostock University's Family Office, we will be able to offer free daycare for presenters' and participants' children (between the ages of 0-10). The service will be located in close proximity to the conference venue, with one licensed professional assigned to each group of three children.
As there are six spaces available only, please register by 30th April at firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email please include the days you will require the service, for how many children and for how many hours.
Peace and Quiet
There will be a designated quiet room to provide respite from the hustle and bustle of the conference. Rostock is also a city full of parks and green spaces, one being only a couple of minutes walk from our venue. Please don't hesitate to reach out to any of our team who will be more than happy to help you find a little calm in the city.
Keynote presentations and the Current Events panel will be recorded for those who cannot attend the meeting in person.
Safer Space for BIPOC members of the GAAS
There will be a room allocated as a safer space for BIPOC members of the GAAS to connect and chat during the conference.
