The 6. retreat took place from 10.07.-12.07.2008 in Chamerau, a village within the bautiful rolling hills of the bavarian forest.

Our accomodation in Chamerau was the "Gasthof Bäckerwirt" (http://www.gasthof-baeckerwirt.de/ ). We had a series of scientific talks of program members and an exalted time to discuss about the organisation of our doctorate program. In addition we made a funny boat trip on (some even below) the river Regen.
