Our 8th SEC annual meeting took place from 2.-4. May 2022 at the HKK Hotel Wernigerode. The Conference offered "everything under one roof" so that the 8th SEC annual meeting was also a Conference of short distances. You can download our flyer for the Conference in Wernigerode as a PDF here.

Wernigerode is a highly attractive little town in the middle of the Harz Mountains. It is known for its many half-timbered houses and a particularly magnificent town hall from the Renaissance period. The Conference was followed by May Day, a public holiday, and with it the night of the witches, Walpurgis Night. It is particularly celebrated in Wernigerode and Schierke (known for Schierker Feuerstein, a herbal bitter) and of course on the Brocken. But even without witches and devils, the Harz Mountains are suitable for hiking and relaxing. In addition to the Harz there are attractive excursion destinations in the area, for example Quedlinburg, Halberstadt, Goslar or Gernrode, see excursion destinations below.
