Herrsching is located on the east shore of beautiful Lake Ammersee,
35km (ca. 20miles) southwest of Munich and close to the Bavarian Alps
and the famous castles Neuschwanstein, Hohenschwangau, and Linderhof.
The world famous Munich Oktoberfest starts immediately after VL/HCC '08

There are big discounts of up to 30% available for registering at more
than one of the co-located conferences. Early registration closes on

Don't delay: hotel rooms are of short supply because of the Munich
Oktoberfest. The room block for hotels at Herrsching ends at the
