We are pleased to invite all interested parties to Freiburg, Germany for the 39th installment of the European Symposium on Occultation Projects. IOTA/ESs annual conference will, as always, include talks and lectures as well as interesting excursions.

Hosting town this time is Freiburg im Breisgau. The charming city of Freiburg in southwestern Germany is surrounded by the mountains of the Black Forest to the east and open to the Rhine valley to the West. Freiburg with its cathedral, its "Bächle" and many other sights is always worth a visit.

Freiburg can be reached by car (motorway A5, B31), ICE/TGV trains and by plane via the EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg. The major international airports of Frankfurt and Zurich are two hours away by train. The conference centre can be easily reached by public transport from Freiburg main station.

The conference house "Waldhof" is located in the east of Freiburg. Framed by high old trees we find in an old and stylish mansion best possibilities for our conference: a large lecture hall, accommodation and good food supply.

In keeping with ESOP tradition, post conference excursions will be offered.
