An interesting aspect of the MiCom conference is the “meet the expert” workshop arranged for participants. The workshops are tailored to foster exchange of experiences and ideas among the attendants and experts in the given field. These experts consist of conference speakers and local researchers from Jena.

Selecting which workshops you would like to attend takes place during registration. Workshop places are allocated on a first come first serve basis. We will endeavour to assign people as many first choice workshops as possible.

We aim to have groups of 20-30 participants during these workshops. This group size allows equal and individual attention from the presenter, but still large enough to conduct a lively discussion. The workshops usually last for about 1 hour depending on the enthusiasm of participants.

The MiCom2020 will comprise the following workshops (please indicate your preferences during the registration):

  • “Correlation analysis in metagenomics data” by Daniel Loos (Tuesday, 17.03)

  • “Coping with pressure during PhD studies” by Dr. Hendrik  Huthoff (Wednesday, 18.03)
