Max Planck ETH Center for Learning Systems Retreat 2016
September 5-7, 2016
Bonndorf, Germany


We are pleased to announce the CLS fellow and member retreat in Bonndorf, in the beautiful Southern Black Forest. All fellows and associated fellows as well as all members and associated members of the Max Planck ETH Center for Learning Systems are cordially invited. This is a great opportunity to get to know colleagues from MPI and ETH and to discuss research ideas in an informal atmosphere.



Format

The retreat is open to young researchers as well as established scientists of the center.

The format will allow for a mix of research and social interactions. We will identify research topics of interest around which small work groups (5-7 people) will be formed. Members are particularly encouraged to join on Tuesday, September 6 when time will be dedicated to general discussions on the activities of the center and to individual meetings for research collaborations. At the evening of this second day, fireside chats with established researchers will allow participants to discuss current research questions in a broader context, ethical or societal implications, or matters of scientific career. Finally, there will be enough time for fun activities such as hikes and games.
