Interdisciplinary College

IK 2022 under aggravating COVID conditions: 100% virtual

Flexibility is not only our scientific topic, but also an asset in pandemic times!

We have re-planned the program and updated the web-site. Registration will re-open as soon as possible.

Interdisciplinary College 2022
Flexibility“, 07.03.-17.03.2022

At IK2022, the focus theme Flexibility will be explored in the true interdisciplinary spirit covering (but not be limited to)

Nervous system
Mind
Communication
AI & Robotics

IK 2022 had been planned as a 50% online (week 1) and a 50% physical in-person (week 2) event, implementing innovative ideas for combining virtual and in-person tutoring and personal networking. However, the apparent aggravation of the pandemic would most likely render an in-person meeting impossible. With many regrets we have decided to change the second week from in-person to virtual.

Virtual IK in gather.town from Monday, March 7th to Thursday, March 17th

Participants from all over the world are invited to join online lecture series, workshops, key note lectures, panel discussions, a fish bowl discussion on career development, a virtual poster session, and plenty of opportunities for social interaction in our virtual conference venue in gather.town. Design your avatar, enjoy the talks by and interaction with top-class speakers from multiple disciplines, and join the crowd for a chat at the virtual fireplace or an online game – while you are comfortably sitting at home. The scientific program from 4.00 to 8.30 pm CET (with subsequent social interaction events) will allow participation in this online spring school, while maintaining regular study or work activities.
