Location: Webex Conference

Organizer: IQST

In light of the Corona virus crisis, it is more important than ever to stay connected as a community and find effective and creative workarounds to maintain normality. Therefore, the IQST team has decided to take a part of the IQST PhD Retreat program online.

Although an important aim of the PhD retreat was face-to-face networking, we believe that moving to an online experience can add new benefits. In addition to keeping some of the scientific talks planned previously for the actual retreat, we are currently developing a new concept to increase engagement by incorporating interactive team activities and a live panel discussion on the new situation with a Q&A session. The new schedule for talks will be over a 3 day period, from Monday the 18th to Wednesday the 20th of May, in the morning from 9:30 am to 12 pm. The talks cover the broad interdisciplinary topics of IQST from various research institutes across our three locations, the universities of Stuttgart and Ulm, and MPI.
