Diary Entry: 2008-08-05 00:00:00 - 2008-08-17 00:00:00

Liam attends the international summer school Marktoberdorf 2008. There he attended lectures (courses) from various well known computer scientists and researchers such as: Jean-Raymond Abrial, Manfred Broy, Tony Hoare and John Reynolds (to name but a few). Whilst learning was a main goal there so was socialising. One of the Marktoberdorf Golden Rules was not to talk to people from your own country - this was not too hard coming from Wales. There were two major excursions during the summer school. the first, was to Mount Fellhorn where we hiked up part of the mountain - we took a cable car to start :-). The second was to Neuschwanstein castle, where we had a guided tour but could not take any photos inside the castle. A Jazz concert was also held just for the summer school where Quadro Nuevo performed amazing music. The whole summer school was excellent adventure.
