It was our 4th time and it was virtual.

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, we never thought about a virtual scientific conference. But yet, here we are. This was the first one for us in this form, and with more than 118 registered active participants the largest one yet. This means the research spirit lives on and we are extremely happy so many of you have decided to participate.

Poster rooms are password protected and open until the end of Friday, the 24th of September 2021.

FKKT library staff asks you to fill out and send this form to one of the e-mails listed here. They ask for patience as many of you will have the same query.
