Program

from 18-20 November 2020

Due to the Corona Crisis, the conference will be taking a hybrid format. We will create two hubs: one in Berlin and one in Kyoto for those persons who are able and willing to travel to one of the two conference sites. Both hubs will be connected via video conferencing tools. For those who cannot or will not travel to either one of the two hubs, they can participate online. The common session will be held from 9:00 – 12:30 European time and from 16:00 to 19:30 Japanese time. All participants can attend these  sessions online. Furthermore, the participants at the Berlin hub will meet separately from 14:00 to 15:30 at the Berlin venue, and the people present at the Kyoto hub will have separate meetings from 14:00 to 15:30 at the Kyoto venue.
