The NMDB midterm meeting will be held in Kiel from December 3-5, 2008 at the Institute for Experimental and Applied Physics of the Christian-Albrechts Universität zu Kiel (overview of the location).
On wednesday, december 3rd, 2008, a scientific session about Neutron Monitor data registration, quality control of NM data, and alert systems
will be held. The talks will be 20min each (plus 5-10 minutes for discussion), so we can have 12-16 talks during this one day session, one talk per NMDB participant. Please submit

Getting there and around
Kiel is easy to reach
by Car, train, bus, ferry, as well as by airplane. If you arrive by plane, the nearest airport with regular flights is Hamburg. You would then take the Kielius bus service
which takes to to Kiel central station or directly to your Hotel (with a Kiel combi ticket or the KielExx express bus). If you arrive by train or ferry, you will arrive at the central station or (with the ferries from Gothenburg and Oslo) very near to the center. You can continue your travel by taxi or by public transport
are available at the bus driver, tickets
for multiple trips or a whole week are available at the central bus station and special shops
. Some hotels
give you a free bus ticket.
Kiel has many hotels in all categories, I can not list them all here, so I will only list a few ones that I know of. If you book a hotel in the downtown area (between the Central Train Station and Alter Markt) it will be easy to get to the University by public transport.
