Venue & Travel
Hamburg, home of Europe’s third largest port, has been Germany’s gateway to the world since the time of the medieval Hanseatic League.
Various rivers and canals traverse the city, requiring around 2,500 bridges and making it the city with the highest number of bridges in Europe thus giving it the nickname 'Venice of the North'.
Aside from its rich architectural heritage such as the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Speicherstadt and Kontorhausviertel, the city is also home to notable cultural venues such as the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle, concert halls as well as several theatres and a variety of musical shows.
St. Pauli's Reeperbahn is among the best-known European entertainment districts and is famous too for being the place where the Beatles’ career took off.
Hamburg is also a major European science, research, and education hub, with several universities and institutions, making it a perfect backdrop for the 59th EASD Annual Meeting.

EASD and its agents are not liable for any other loss or inconvenience caused as a result of such changes.
Modification of the Programme
The organiser will make all efforts to adhere to the programme advertised. However, the organiser and its agents reserve the right to alter, replace or cancel, without prior notice, any of the speakers or arrangements announced, provided that the overall character of the event remains unaffected. The organiser will inform the attendees to that effect immediately by publishing details of the modification on the website. If those modifications are caused by any factor outside of the reasonable control and the responsibility of the organiser (e.g. a speaker is suddenly prevented from attending, any unforeseeable disruption at the venue), the organiser will not be liable for any loss or inconvenience caused as a result of such modifications.
Cancellation of the Annual Meeting
The organiser reserves the right to withdraw from the contract in whole or in part and to cancel the Annual Meeting if the performance of the same is impossible due to force majeure or other unforeseen incidents outside its responsibility including, without limitation, strike, lock-out, natural disasters, terrorism, riots, war, disorder, and acts of public authorities. The organiser will inform the attendees to that effect immediately.
In this case, the organiser cannot be held liable by the attendee for any damages, costs, or losses incurred, such as transportation, accommodation, costs for additional orders, financial losses, etc. caused by the slight negligence of the organiser, its legal representatives or vicarious agents. Apart from that, the limitation of liability remains unaffected.
Under these circumstances, the organiser will refund the registration fee but reserves the right to deduct any costs from the registration fee which have already been incurred for the organisation of the Annual Meeting and which cannot be recovered from third parties.
Limitation of Liability
The organiser is liable without restriction for any damage arising from loss of life, personal injury or illness caused by the organiser, its legal representatives or vicarious agents.
In the event of any other damage caused by the organiser, its legal representatives or vicarious agents, liability is limited to intentionally or grossly negligent conduct.
The above does not apply to claims relating to breaches of fundamental contract obligations. Fundamental contract obligations are those the performance of which is essential to the contract and on which the attendee may rely. In the event of a breach of fundamental contract obligations caused by the slight negligence of the organiser, its legal representatives or vicarious agents, the organiser’s liability for all damage is limited to the foreseeable damages typical of the contract.
