The organizing committee welcome you at the “Electron Paramagnetic Resonance for catalysis research” workshop.
Workshop topics include in situ and spectro-electrochemical EPR, magnetic-structural correlations, spin- and magnetic-field-dependent catalysis, combined EPR and NMR approaches, and EPR on catalytic coordination complexes and solid-state materials/electrodes. The aim of the workshop is to allow intensive discussions and exchange across the different disciplines of catalysis. In this respect, the program was formed on the basis of invited scientists based on their significant contribution in the field.
We wish to thank the Max-Planck Society for allowing us to exploit the beautiful location of Schloss Ringberg for this workshop with its excellent conference infrastructure and the Ernst-Rudolf-Schloeßmann Stiftung for funds to support participants from Max-Planck Institutes. Welcome and enjoy your staying in the Ringberg castle!

From Munich Airport (MUC), take the S-Bahn line S1 or S8 to Munich Central Station. Continuation to Tegernsee station: distance 59 km (final station), travel time approx. 1 hour. For details see By train.
To Munich central station by Deutsche Bahn - onward journey to Tegernsee station: distance 59 km (final station), journey time approx. 1 hour. Details see timetable (Bayerische Oberlandbahn BOB). From the station we recommend using a taxi: e.g. Taxi Jasinski Tel. +49 (0)8022 / 95 0 99.
Motorway Munich-Salzburg A8 (E45) via motorway junction Brunnthal to exit 97 Holzkirchen. Continue on the B318 to Gmund am Tegernsee. In Gmund turn off to Bad Wiessee and continue to the traffic lights after the town sign of Weißach. Here turn right into the federal road B307 towards Achensee. After approx. 1 km drive off the federal road B307 shortly after the end of Reitrain and continue straight on for approx. 100 m until the specially signposted access avenue at the edge of the forest (1.8 km gravel road with 9% gradient) to Ringberg Castle.
The organizing committee will arrange a shuttle mini-bus for helping to pick up the participants from Tegernsee train station up to the Ringberg Castle. Please inform in advance the organizing committee about the arrival time at the Tegernsee station.
All lectures will take place in the Lecture Hall of the castle. The posters will be presented at the Foyer of the Lecture Hall.
Meals will be served in the Dining Room of the castle. Coffee breaks will be served in the Foyer of the Lecture Hall. Sunday’s dinner will be served in the Garden Room.
The castle has a fitness room, a leisure room for games (equipped with table tennis, dartboard and foosball table), blue seminar room (equipped with a large-screen TV) and a “witches” room equipped with various board and card games. An outdoor swimming pool is also available for the participants. More information can be found on Fitness & Leisure | Schloss Ringberg Conference Site of the Max Planck Society (schloss-ringberg.de)
A walking tour from the castle to the lake will be offered on Tuesday afternoon. The tour is easy to walk and it takes approximately 1 hour (4.8 km).
Additional hiking tips can be found on Fitness & Leisure | Schloss Ringberg Conference Site of the Max Planck Society (schloss-ringberg.de)
