Welcome to Berlin, the Cradle of SMiRT
We are proud to invite you to the city in which Thomas Jaeger initiated the SMiRT conferences back in 1971: Berlin, Germany’s political, cultural and historical centre. Located in the heart of Europe, it is an easy city to access that has once again become a top ten destination amongst world metropolises. With Maritim Hotel Berlin as our venue, you will enjoy an ideal starting point for discovering the city’s living history, art treasures from all eras, trendy shopping and a wild club culture.
Berlin, a Capital of Masterminds
Humboldt, Einstein, Virchow, Koch, Meitner, Planck and many other famous scholars are testimonies to the fact that Berlin has always had a special attraction for scientists. Today, it is one of the largest and most diverse science regions of the continent, with roughly 200,000 people from around the world teaching, researching, working and studying here.
