Directions to the restaurant Vitus. The talks are not in the neighborhood of the campus, but in the historic center of Regensburg. From the main station (Hauptbahnhof) go straight into Maximilianstrasse. After about 400m turn left into Drei-Kronen-Gasse, then straight ahead through Schwarze-Bärenstrasse to Sankt-Kassians-Platz and to Neupfarrplatz. From there straight to Gesandtenstrasse, and then turn right into Rote-Hahnen-Gasse. Turn right again from Rote-Hahnen-Gasse into the street called Hinter der Grieb. Here you will find the restaurant Vitus. After entering the buildung turn left into the lecture room.

We kindly thank the DFG-Schwerpunkt Globale Differentialgeometrie for support. Our mini-workshop would not have been possible without the International Meeting on Spectral Geometry and Related Topics, Potsdam, 13.-17. Mai 2008 which attracted several speakers to Germany. We also thank the Joh.-Kepler-Forschungszentrum for providing the infrastructure.
