The goal of the one-day workshop is to highlight recent breakthroughs in the study of matter at high energy densities. The following topics will be covered:
- First experiments at the European XFEL HED instrument
- X-ray diagnostics using high-power optical and free-electron lasers
- Quantum-statistical approaches including ab initio simulations
- Progress in the study of solar and extrasolar planets
Participation in the workshop is free (no fee). All participants bear their expenses for travel and accommodation. A list of hotels in Rostock is given.

The German community of researchers working in the fields of planet formation, exoplanets and planetary systems, protoplanetary and debris disks, astrobiology, and planetary research in general organizes the workshops "Planet Formation and Evolution" since 2001. The meetings in the series are typically held every 1,5 years at different German universities that host research groups actively working on these topics. This workshop is the 12th in the series.
PFE meetings are usually attended by up to 150 participants from all parts of Germany with a broad international participation. Following the spirit of the previous very stimulating meetings, the goal of this workshop is to provide a common platform for scientists working in the fields listed above. Most importantly, this workshop is aimed at stimulating and intensifying the dialogue between researchers using various approaches - observations, theory, and laboratory studies. In particular, students and postdocs are encouraged to present their results and to use the opportunity to learn more about the main questions and most recent results in adjacent fields.
The workshops in the series are traditionally neutral in terms of funding. This implies that no registration fee is charged and that no financial support is offered to the participants. In exceptional cases, the organisers will try to arrange some support from the funds provided to us by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for the meeting organization.

Founded in 1419, Rostock's university is one of the oldest universities in Germany and the oldest one in the Baltic region. The city of Rostock is located in the north-eastern part of Germany, about 200km from Hamburg, Berlin and Szczecin in Poland. Other Baltic countries can be conveniently reached by ferry. If you'd like to visit Warnemünde directly at the beach, a train will take you there in about 25 minutes. For more information about Rostock visit http://www.rostock.de/en/.

Long-distance busses are typically the cheapest means of transport. However, they reach Jena only a few times a day. Currently, BerlinLinienBus and Flixbus/MeinFernBus/Postbus operate connections to and from Jena. The central bus station (ZOB) is located close to the long-distance train station, Jena Paradies O.
You can check available connections with
Deutsche Bahn (English version).
For details on specific connections from the airports, see below.
It is advisable to make a seat reservation if you travel with an ICE, especially on Fridays and Sundays. If you travel with an ICE and you have reserved a seat, you can find a scheme (Wagenstandanzeiger) with the passenger cars' stopping positions at each platform. Deutsche Bahn offers cheaper tickets for people who book very early (called Sparangebote). However, these tickets are valid only for one specific connection. Regional trains may be operated by companies other than Deutsche Bahn (e.g. Abellio, Erfurter Bahn, or even NASA if you plan a day trip to Saxony-Anhalt...), but normal tickets are valid regardless of the operator.
By train from Frankfurt Airport:
The trains (ICE) from Frankfurt go every hour (until 9 p.m.) and take about three and a half hours. The official name of the station for departure is Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Fernbf. If you arrive at terminal 2, you will have to take a free shuttle bus at the airport to get there. The train does not go directly to Jena. You have to change to a regional train
By train from Munich Airport:
You first have to take the city train (S 8) to the central station (München Hbf). Then, you have to go from the underground platforms for city trains and trams to the platforms for long-range trains. There, an ICE departs at least once an hour reaching Jena Paradies O about four and a half to five hours later. For some connection you have to change the ICE in Nürnberg. The latest non-overnight connection departs around 6:30 p.m. from Munich airport. You can reach the airport from 11 a.m.
By train from Berlin Airport:
Regardless of the airport (Schönefeld (SXF) or Tegel (TXL)) at which you arrive, you first have to go to the main train station (Berlin Hbf). Therefore, from Schönefeld you take the city train (S 9, then change to S 41) or a regional train. From Tegel you take the bus (TXL). An InterCity (IC) then directly reaches Jena Paradies O, departing from the main station's lowest level, typically track 1 or 2. This part of your travel will last about two hours. The latest connection from either of the two airports departs around 9 p.m. The earliest connection reaches Berlin around 8:30 a.m.
By train from Leipzig/Halle Airport:
Typically you take the city train (S5 or S5X) to Leipzig main station (Leipzig Hbf). From there, ICEs (towards Munich, until 6:30 p.m.) or regional trains (towards Saalfeld, until 10:30 p.m.) take you directly to Jena Paradies O. However some connections may be less direct, requiring train changes in Gera, Weißenfels, or Naumburg. You can reach the airport from 7 a.m.
