  • Psi-k conference

    Aug 22, 2022, 13:00 until Aug 25, 2022, 18:00, SwissTech Convention Center, EPFL

    IMPORTANT NOTICE: After first postponing the Psi-k 2020 conference to 2021, we have decided that it would still not be possible to host a successful event in person that year. Rather than hold the conference online, we feel strongly that it is worth waiting a little bit longer in order to be able to meet safely in person, as originally planned. Therefore, we now announce that the conference will be postponed by another year, to August 22-25, 2022, preserving the same format and symposia. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to meeting you in 2022! Note: the Volker Heine Young Investigator Award ceremony was held at a separate event in September 2021.
