Intended for the exchange of ideas, concepts, and contacts, the DSM Conference 2007 provides numerous occasions to discuss topics and gain a better understanding of how complexity management is currently being addressed. Besides sessions and breaks, a social program completes the three days' conference.

Get-together prior to conference

For all participants arriving the day before the conference, an informal get-together is planned to meet old friends and colleagues and to get to know new participants more closely. Conveniently located in the old part of Schwabing, one of Munich's most famous quarters, the get-together will be held at one of the city's oldest beer gardens and restaurants.

The Oktoberfest will be held from 22th September 2007 until 7th October 2007. As hotel prices are notably higher during this time, the organizers decided to run this year's DSM Conference only ten days after the Oktoberfest. If you intend to arrive a few days earlier, we highly recommend to book your accommodation as early as possible.
