The next DDI Workshop will take place on May 29th to May 31st, 2022, at the Marbach Castle Conference Centre, Oehningen, Lake Constance, Germany.


Information on the registration options and procedures of the 2022 Workshop will be made available by October 1st, 2021.

Considering the current uncertainties around the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, including the spread of more infectious virus mutations on the one hand, and the progress of the vaccination programs across the world on the other hand, we are currently planning for a “hybrid” meeting this year. This means that speakers and attendees will have the opportunity to opt by certain date (see below) between attendance in person at Marbach Castle or for a virtual attendance via video conference (Zooms).There are several factors which are beyond our control. These include rules and requirements of local authorities on size of the gatherings for meetings, as well as international and company guidelines governing travel. In case that any of such restrictions will still be in place by end of May, thereby precluding a gathering of a meaningful number of attendees at Marbach Castle, the entire Workshop will be held as a virtual meeting.

Registration for Physical Attendance at Marbach Castle

Keeping with the tradition of the Marbach event in the past, to maintain the tradition of Marbach DDI Workshop that assures optimal scientific exchange and interaction at personal level, we limit the number of participants to about 70. Therefore, early registration is recommended, to assure your place at the Workshop. In case the meeting is fully booked, a “standby” registration option will be considered which may come into effect in case of cancellations.

Registration for Virtual Conference Attendance

Because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, registration for a web-based virtual conference attendance on May 31st and June 1st, is possible for the Workshop 2021. Only 2-day registrations for the entire event will be accepted. The fees for the virtual conference attendance will be 50 % of the fees applicable for the physical 2-day attendance at Marbach Castle. The number of virtual conference attendees is limited to 50.

Registration Formalities and Procedures

Workshop participation will be assigned in the sequence of receipt of registration applications. Full confirmation of registration, however, will only be granted upon complete receipt of the Workshop fees, which become payable within 3 weeks after submission of the registration application.
