Here are some pictures of our annual conference this year.
Due to known reasons, the 2020 annual conference had to be held entirely online. To this end we have set up a dedicated BigBlueButton server with the help of the mathematics computer team of TUK. As a result, the BigBlueButton conference system could be used smoothly for more than 80 synchronous participants. Slides and recordings/videos of the lectures will be made available on the conference website. In addition to the live lectures, there were numerous public and private discussions. These took place in various formats – via chat, conference system or by phone.
In addition, we tried some new formats for social events. We started with a joint presentation of our favorite drinks – that was also charming via the web conference system. On the second evening, eleven participants came together in a virtual womens night. Many interesting impulses were reported to the Steering Committee. At the final evening, a similar get-together for doctoral students was organized – this resulted in a lot of interesting suggestions for the second phase.
