Where are the computers? Where can I send e-mails?

The computers are in the conference and library building on the lower floor along with the monographs A-G. Turn to the right when you come down the stairs. For long-term researchers there is an additional computer room on the upper floor opposite to the big lecture hall. The key for that room is bundled with the key for your room.

Is there wireless network? Is there internet in my room?

There is wireless network in the cafeteria, in large parts of the conference and library building, in parts of the grounds and in Bungalow 1, where the Oberwolfach Leibniz Fellows usually live.

To foster communication between the workshop participants internet in the rooms is only available during the night from 10:00 pm to 8:00 am. For long-term researchers there is cable-bound ethernet in the appartments and in Bungalow 5.

Do I need a password?

You will need a password for using the Institute’s computers. Participants of workshops will find their passwords in the red folder at the far end of the computer room. Long-term researchers will find their passwords in their rooms.

Where can I print, scan or fax?

There is a special Copy Room in the basement of the conference and library building, where instructions for using the scanner and printer are given. To send a fax, please come to the guest office in the guest house.

Where can I make a phone call?

You will find phone facilities on each floor of the two buildings, for example behind the stairs on your left in the main entrance hall of the guest house or beside the washrooms in the conference and library building.

Do you have special mathematical software installed?
