Conference Venue: The University of Mannheim

ICCA10 will take place at the East Wing of the University of Mannheim.
A map of the venue can be downloaded here (pdf-file).

Currency

The currency in Germany is Euro.
Automated teller machines of various German banks are widespread throughout the entire city. You might want to look up which German banks cooperate with your home bank to avoid being charged fees for international cash withdrawals. In general, all well-established credit cards are accepted in Germany. However, it is rather unusual to pay for smaller amounts with a credit card and some smaller stores might not accept credit cards but only cash or European cash cards. Thus, you might want to ask beforehand whether credit cards are accepted when shopping or dining.

Electricity

Electrical current in Germany is 230V (50Hz). Plugs which fit German wall sockets (= Type F) are two-prong plugs Type C (“Europlug”) and Type F (“Schuko plug”). Please note that you might need to bring along adapters in case your technical devices require different voltage, plugs, or sockets.
