Conference Venue

Kloster Irsee (Swabian Conference Centre at IrseeNestling in the Alpine Foreland of the Allgäu and located only a few kilometers from walled town of Kaufbeuren (http://www.kaufbeuren-tourismus.de/), the former Benedictine monastery at Irsee – founded in the 12th century – now houses a modern conference center.  The magnificent Baroque church and the harmoniously designed four-winged monastery, surrounded by a well-kept park, away from major highways and yet easily reached, is particularly suitable for the conference.  The center offers a broad range of leisure activities including a bierstube in the cellar of the monastery and a game room with pool, table tennis and tabletop football.  There is also a bocce court and a sauna available for guests.  Nearby are many jogging trails, fitness trails, a tennis center, walking and hiking trails.  Across the court from the center is the Irsee brewery where conference attendees can enjoy beer directly from its source.  Note that there are no televisions in the bedrooms; however, one may be rented.

The nearest major airport is Franz-Josef Strauss Airport in Munich (http://www.munich-airport.de/EN/index.html) and their web-link provides a great deal of useful information, including information for booking airport hotels.

A concert on the historic church organ is being arranged for early Sunday evening, June 24.  After the concert, conference participants are invited to go to the organ loft and informally meet the organist.

Kloster Irsee/Swabian Conference Center at Irsee is a good starting point for excursions and sightseeing tours to the Allgäu Mountains, to Lake Constance, to Austria and Switzerland. For those who plan to extend their stay, popular day-trips are to the Castles of Linderhof and Neuschwanstein (built by the Bavarian King Ludwig II), the scenic Tannheimer Valley and the Pfaffenwinkel with its famous Baroque churches (Wieskirche).

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording/photographing of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
