Evening Events (top)

Town Hall Reception

On Tuesday, 1 April 2008 the GAMM2008 participants will be officially welcomed by the Bremen state government in the historic Bremen Town Hall.
The “Rathaus” is situated in the city centre of Bremen right next to the Roland statue on the marketplace. Both of them have been listed as UNESCO world heritage sites since 2004 and are thereby recognised as a unique testimony to civic autonomy and market rights as these developed in Europe over the centuries.


Town Hall

The Bremen Town Hall was built between 1405 - 1408. In 1608 a new facade to the Gothic building was given by Lüder von Bentheim, an architect from Bremen. The so-called “Weser Renaissance” facade has graced the Town Hall ever since.
It is the only European town hall of the Late Middle Ages that has never been destroyed.
Enjoy a virtual tour through the most beautiful rooms of this historic building.
The Town Hall Reception is free of charge.


Conference Dinner

The Conference Dinner on Tuesday, 1 April 2008 will take place in the gourmet restaurant “l’Orchidée”. The Michelin star rated restaurant has been situated in the “Ratskeller” since 2002.

Being over 600 years old, the “Ratskeller Bremen” is the oldest wine cellar in Germany and is representing the “exquisite foundation” of the Town Hall.
The visitor of the wine cellar can choose from around 600 different wines, which are, different from those offered in the restaurant, solely originated from German wine-growing areas.


Conference Dinner


Since 2002, the restaurant “l’Orchidée”, (rated with a michelin star) is situated in the “Senats- und Kaiserzimmer” (the Goverment and Emperor Saloon) of the Council Cellar. Years ago, this room was reserved to the state government of Bremen as the reception area.
The fee for the Conference Dinner is €48.00 per person.


Public Lecture

The public lecture "Mathematik für's Leben" held by Prof. Dr. Heinz-Otto Peitgen (Bremen) will be part of the official programme of the "Year of Mathematics". The lecture will take place on Wednesday, 2 April 2008 at 18.30 hrs at the Mercedes Benz Customer Assistance Centre in Bremen.


Since 2000, a “Year of Science” has been initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in Germany. In the course of the initiative “Science in Dialogue”, the year 2008 has been announced to be the “National Year of Mathematics”.
GAMM, among other organisations like the “German Association of Mathematics” (DMV), is getting involved in this project in order to enhance the exchange between science and public.

Along with numerous presentations, conventions and smaller events throughout the year, the public lecture of the GAMM2008 in Bremen will be part of the official programme of the "Year of Mathematics". Since we are expecting a large attendance by the Bremen public, the lecture by Prof. Dr. Heinz-Otto Peitgen will take place at the Mercedes Benz Customer Assistance Centre in Bremen.


Theatre “YES”

Instead of a concert we have scheduled an exceptional “poetic science show” titled “Yes” performed by the Circus Quantenschaum in cooperation with the Bremer Shakespeare Company on Thursday, 03 April 2008, 20.00 hrs at the CONCORDIA Theatre in Bremen. “Yes” assumes that everything in our world is connected. The “theory of everything” can be solved but we are not able to get it under control, because we as human beings represent only one coordinate from countless others in this formula. However, we are able to influence the other ordinal lines. If we make an effort to understand this, we will become wiser and act in a responsible manner. This is a principle of evolution and also the idea of art. Differentiating, transforming, exploring new combinations and creating new metaphors – isn’t this how innovation happens? The ensemble will take you on a “journey into the unknown” with a show that combines artistic, acrobatic, poetic and Indian Kathakali elements. Complex contents will be expressed through artwork. The Circus Quantenschaum understands its work as mediation between science and art.


Info: The performance is also understandable for a non-German speaking audience. The only spoken passage of the performance is a poem spoken in German. An English version of the poem is printed in the programme and can be purchased at the ticket counter.

Choreographie: Annette Leday (France)

2. Astro Walk(top)

Description:

At the turn of the 18th to 19th century Bremen was a centre of astronomy of European-wide importance. Vital impulses for the astronomy of the day came from Wilhelm Olbers, from Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel and from Johann Hieronymus Schroeter in Lilienthal near Bremen. Astronomy is one of the roots of Bremen’s scientific development, represented today by the numerous research institutes and the importance of the air and space industries. This expertise has been recognised in 2005 when Bremen became the first German city to receive the national award “City of Science”. The Bremen Astro Walk offers an excellent opportunity to follow in the footsteps of European astronomers: interconnecting science, art and Bremen history.
