In addition to Dagstuhl Seminars and Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshops, which form the core of its scientific program, Schloss Dagstuhl serves as a venue for several other events.


These events include the following:

  • Continuing education offerings like summer schools or educational events for teachers
  • Departmental conferences of university chairs, graduate colleges, GI specialist groups and other academic and industrial working groups
  • International informatics conferences

Research guests who would like to spend several days or weeks at the center in a working retreat are also welcome.

These events are individually organized and venue-only. In such cases, Schloss Dagstuhl serves as a fully equipped conference site but plays no role in setting the content or quality of the events. The only condition they must satisfy is that they feature an informatics topic and may not directly serve commercial purposes. Event organizers and participants of any nationality are welcome. Participants are all chosen and vetted by their respective organizers.

In contrast to Dagstuhl Seminars and Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshops, a fee (in some cases slightly subsidized) covering the costs of the event is charged to the guests or the institution organizing the event.
