Aims of the Meeting
The purposes of this meeting are to:
- update each other on recent developments and current activities;
- discuss more what we actually expect from DELPH-IN (and each other);
- create the opportunity for contentful exchange on computational grammar research in the DELPH-IN spirit.
Following the Summit tradition, we plan on Wednesday afternoon a trip to Bostalsee, the largest lake in Saarland and now a locally popular recreation center, some 20km to the northwest of Sankt Wendel. (The Google map satellite image shows an outdated picture taken a few years ago when the lake was almost dried up. The location has since been significantly reshaped. The Bing map's satellite image is more up-to-date and appealing.) Recreation Center Bostalsee offers various activity options, including rental motor/peddle boats, windsurfing, fishing (license required), cycling, access to lake beach & swimming, or simply a relaxing 6.8km walk around the lake (mostly paved roads). Please pack your equipments accordingly (walking shoes, swimsuits, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, etc.). Public transportation from the hotel to Bostalsee takes about 35 minutes, transferring just once at the nearby town Türkismühle, where our banquet will start from 19:00 at Schreiner's Restaurant (Saarbrückerstr.34, 66625 Nohfelden, 200m from the Türkismühle train station).
- From Sankt Wendel train station, take a regional train to Türkismühle (10 min)
- From Türkismühle train station, take bus line R11 or 630 to station Campingplatz, Bosen Nohfelden (15-20 min)
- From the lake to Türkismühle, the bus is NOT so frequent. The good options is 18:03 - 18:22 (other options are 16:03 - 16:22, 20:03 - 20:22, and 21:03 - 21:22)
- From Türkismühle back to Sankt Wendel, the trains are fairly frequent (twice each hour) and the last one is 00:26 - 00:37 (or 04:09 which is not recommended)
