Update format: online conference

At this time we see increasing numbers of infections and also increasing measures to prevent the virus to spread even more. For this reason we feel it is essential to convert this conference from an in-person event to a fully live-streamed one. Your active participation is still needed, we connect you to each other using our online networking platform. You can meet up at random, make appointments, chat, discuss topics in groups, ask questions and follow the livestream. Not only during the event, but also a week prior to a week after the event. Hope to meet you online!
