Summer Schools

Summer schools, autumn schools, etc. 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 serve commercial purposes.

Participation in these events is completely regulated by the respective organizers.

Participation and Format


The group of participants will be determined by the organizers.


In general, about 30 or 45 people participate (including speakers and organizers), and the event lasts 3 to 5 days. In most cases, there are 30 people for 5 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). Prices are valid until December 31, 2022.


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

Application Format


An informal application to service(at) is sufficient providing:

  • names of the organizers,
  • title of the event (max. 80 characters),
  • planned number of participants and duration,
  • 2 to 3 paragraphs describing the topic, making the reference to computer science clear and which can be published on the webpage of the event, ideally already with the agreement of all authors of this description to publish it on the website under the CC-BY license "Creative Commons Attribution 4.0",
  • how the group of participants is to be formed,
  • which lecturers are tentatively scheduled.

Additional information on the organization (e.g. time schedule) can be attached.

Application Process and Schedule


Applications can be submitted at any time, but allow 6 to 18 months' notice. The application must be approved by the Scientific Director.


Approximately 2 to 3 dates per year are allocated for summer schools giving priority.
