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

There is wireless network in the rooms and in large parts of the public areas with the exception of the large lecture hall. In addition, cable-bound ethernet can be found in the telephone booths, in some of the rooms and at many places in the conference and library building.

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

The computers are loosely distributed throughout the lower floor of the conference and library building. Starting in mid 2016 there will be some in the Research in Pairs work and discussion spaces on the second floor of the Guest House as well.

Do I need a password?

The Institute’s computers offer literature search sessions, that do not require authentication. For other working environments on the Institute’s computers you will need a personal login. Participants of the weekly meetings will find their account information in the red folder in front of the library office on the lower floor of the conference and library building. Long-term researchers will find this information in their rooms.

Where can I print, scan or fax?

There is a special room in the basement of the conference and library building, next to the library office, with facilities for printing, scanning, and copying. 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 booths 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 lavatories in the conference and library building. The phone booths provide ethernet connectors to let you use skype with the aid of your laptop.

Do you have special mathematical software installed?

We offer a variety of mathematical software on a dedicated application server. It is best accessed through the Institute’s computers (see above). For detailed information consult the following information page.

Can I use a data projector for my presentation?

We offer a variety of technical devices including a video conferencing system. They are either present in the lecture halls or can be borrowed in the IT office. Just let us know.

I am technically lost!

Please take a look at the computer help page, a double sided instruction sheet that you will easily find at the info point in the dining hall and next to one of the computers. If you need further help, please consult the IT staff in the conference and library building on the upper floor at the end of the corridor.
