 Exkursion zur Ilkahöhe am 19.03.2022



Sonnenschein und blauer Himmel. Beste Bedingungen für unsere gut 3 stündige Rundwanderung von Tutzing am Starnberger See hinauf zum Deixlfurter See, weiter zur Ilkahöhe und wieder zurück.Versorgt wurden die 37 Wanderer mit von der Stiftung gesponsorten Lunchpaketen, die zu Beginn ausgeteilt wurden.  Während der Wanderung wurde in wechselnden Gruppierungen angeregt  geplaudert.  Die Aussicht auf den Starnberger See und die Alpen war zwar durch den noch immer in der Luft liegenden Saharastaub etwas gedämpft, aber immer noch wunderschön.



Viele Teilnehmer haben sich bereits erkundigt, wann wieder eine Exkursion angeboten wird.

 Dear Humboldtians,


 on Saturday, March 19, 2022 we will offer a hiking tour.


The tour will start at 11.00 at the S Bahn stop Tutzing. We will make a round trip of about 10 km with a height difference of approx. 100 m and hopefully will have a good view into the Alps from Ilkahöhe (see photo attached)


Family members are welcome to attend.


The AvH generously agreed to pay for packed lunches which we will distribute at the beginning of the hike.


So please mark your calendar!


I will come back to you end of February for more details and ask you to register then.


 Have a good time and stay healthy!

Dear Humboldtians,


on behalf of the Munich Regional Group of the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Humboldtianer, we cordially invite you to our next Salon on November 30th.

However, due to the soaring Covid numbers we will NOT be able to offer a meeting in person in the IBZ.


If you plan to attend via Zoom, please connect at least 15min before the start of the talk (20.00) so that we can sort out possible technical difficulties before the talk.


Zoom ID 94239549694, password 941864,


Around 20:00, Prof. Dr. Rainer W. Gerling will start his presentation on:


IT-Security in Research: Why should I care?


IT-Security in scientific environments is a sensible subject. The openness of science with the international scientific exchange and the restrictions of IT-Security and data privacy are – a least on first sight – seemingly contradicting goals. You will see that there are indeed threads to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and systems in scientific research. Nevertheless, a good organization of IT-Security can also enable scientific exchange and international collaboration exchanging research data. Examples of incidents and examples of good practice will be shown.Excellent science is not possible without good IT-Security.

Prof. Dr. Rainer W. Gerling is a theoretical physicist and a data privacy and IT-Security expert. He has been professionally involved in information technology for over 40 years and published one of the first articles in Germany on computer viruses back in 1986. Prof. Gerling was a Feodor-Lynen-Stipend in 1988/89 at the Center for Simulational Physics at the University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA. 1993 he changed from science to science-administration. From 1993 until his retirement in 2020, he was the data privacy and IT-Security officer of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft. As co-founder, and from 2008 to 2020 as chairman, of the Information Security Working Group of German Research Institutions (AKIF), he played a key role in shaping the information security governance of German universities and research institutions. Today Prof. Gerling teaches Information Security at the Munich University of Applied Sciences and speaks at conferences and workshops.


We hope that we will have a lively discussion during and after the talk via Internet, as already quite a few expressed their interest in the subject.


With kind regards,

Lutz Cleemann, Stefan Recksiegel and Evi Vogel,
