Research group retreats and research meetings are organized individually. As a fully equipped conference center, Schloss Dagstuhl has no influence whatsoever on the content of these events. The only condition is that the events have a computer science theme and do not directly serve commercial purposes. There are no restrictions with regard to the nationality of the organizers or participants.


The group of participants will be determined by the organizers.

The number of participants and the duration of the event depend on the organizers' wishes as well as the available capacity at Schloss Dagstuhl. On individual cases, up to 30 persons can be accommodated on request for up to 5 days. The average is about 15 persons for 2 days.

The information for participants and arrival provide important and useful information on how to get to Schloss Dagstuhl and about the venue.


Schloss Dagstuhl subsidizes participation, which is why the full-board accommodation in a single room is 70 euros per person/night. (For a one-day stay only, the price increases to 90 euros). These prices are valid until December 31, 2022.


If, in exceptional cases, an additional participation fee is required, we require a justification and a cost calculation.
