Cologne, the host of the 1st International Conference on LDAP, achieved the status of a town in the time of the Roman Empire. It is well known for its Gothic cathedral where the bones of the Three Wisemen are kept in a golden sarcophagus. Tourists especially like the impressive panorama over the river Rhine to the cathedral, the old storehouses, the town hall and several Romanesque churches.
The conference will take place at
