GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ)
Haus H
Potsdam, Germany

The GFZ facility will provide OGC TC attendees with wireless access to the Internet, via logins. Those attendees that require VPN must coordinate with OGC Staff to ensure the GFZ IT Staff can be on-hand to help with setup.

The main building is a mobile phone dead zone -- by design, so you may need to plan accordingly.

Lunches will be available from 13.00 - 14.00 hrs daily in the GFZ Cafeteria. The Lunches cost about 4.35€ + VAT or about 5.20€ per day, please have cash available for your Lunches.
