Special Events at the SMiP group

In addition to the regular qualification program, the SMiP group organizes special events that are listed on this page.

In cooperation with IOPS, the SMiP group will organize a joint conference with participants from both graduate programs and external guests in June 2021.

Coping with the ongoing pandemia, we initiated several special offers within the SMiP group, i.e. Digital PI Consultation Hours (on demand) and informal SMiP gatherings after work. On the positive side, we will seize the (digital) opportunity to have our first joint Christmas Party on December, 16th.

SMiP IOPS Conference 2021

The SMiP IOPS Conference 2021 will take place on 24 - 25 June 2021 - in Mannheim or in a digital environment - with pre-conference workshops on 23 June 2021.

Regular SMiP Gathering

In addition to the formal teaching events, this regular gathering allows for informal after work meetings - on the first Monday of every month.

The initial gathering was on Monday, December 7th 2020. The next gathering is scheduled for Monday, February 1th 2021 (starting at 7 pm).

Digital PI Consultation Hours

Considering the restricted travel possibilities and the reduced room for informal interactions during digital events, the SMiP group decided to facilitate the PhD Candidates' contact with their co-advisors and other SMiP PIs digitally. The consultation hours are scheduled via the coordinating center.
