LUNCH BREAKS: Note that no food will be served during the lunch breaks but there are plenty of excellent places to eat in the hood. (If you want to go to a place together as a larger group, please make a reservation the day before – the EWCPS office will help you making the reservations).
Make also use of the lunch seminars provided by Agilent, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Teledyne/Cetac (all upon registration only)! Meinhard/ESI will provide light lunch at their booth on Monday, Thursday and Friday. Our students will provide some snacks for those who do not want to leave the venue at all and will be happy for some volunteer donations.

As a long EWCPS tradition, one place in town serves as ‘meeting point’ where you can meet friends and colleagues, have a beer (or more), some music, dance...all after the show. EWCPS2017 has an official partner in Sankt Anton, who provides exactly the requirements for after-conference-drinks:
The Postkeller (the venue where we host the Après Plasma Party) will be our ‘official’ evening meeting point during the week of the EWCPS2017. This will be the place, where you might find most of the late birds, who are still awake and want to talk, drink and dance... Usually, the place asks for an entrance fee (5 Euro), but your conference badge is your entrance ticket during the whole week. And if you join the Plasma Party on Tuesday and cannot finish all your vouchers, your vouchers are valid for drinks at the Postkeller throughout the whole week of the EWCPS 2017 (and even longer )!
