INS 2024
Constance (Konstanz), Germany
June 24-28, 2024


(Local Organizer and INS Chair).

The local organizer is Dorothea Weniger and the symposium hotel will
be the The Steigenberger Hotel. The Symposium previously met in Konstanz
in 1973 [program here].


[From the Hotel Web page]: Majestically awe-inspiring, the hotel in
Constance shines amidst the walls of a former Dominican monastery. The
hotel is located, idyllically like no other, on a small private island on
Lake Constance in front of the picturesque old town of Constance. The
events of that time in the history-steeped monastery can still be
perfectly understood today in the old cloister with the help of well-
preserved frescoes. Constance's old town can be reached quickly from the
Steigenberger Inselhotel in about three minutes.
