The summer edition of the MCTS Doctoral Colloquium #mytopic.in.society took place on February 25th and 26th 2019.
For two days, the colloquium offered an opportunity for doctoral candidates to present and discuss their research.
In addition to the ‘heart’ of the colloquium – which was comprised of 16 presentations, moderated discussions and break-out groups – the program was framed by a town hall meeting, PhD assembly, PostDoc assembly, 3rd Year Workshop and podcast presentations of MCTS Master students.
We were also very happy to welcome two guests at this summer edition: Jutta Heider (Lund University) and Jörg Niewöhner (HU Berlin). Their moderated plenum discussion on “Global environmental challenges – what role does MCTS play?” and their comments to the presented research had been a great enrichment to the colloquium.
As always, the colloquium had been a great place for the MCTS and friends to meet, engage, learn, and laugh as a community.
We thank the organizing committee Luca Nitschke, Sophia Rossmann, Luise Ruge, Carolin Schönewolf, Mascha Gugganig, Zinaida Vasilyeva and Elisabeth Zellmer, together with the many helping hands on site, and of course the presenters whose work made the event possible.
Finally, we are looking forward to the next colloquium, which will take place on February 13th and 14th 2020.
