Final Open Workshop
November 27 - November 29
Final Open Workshop in Vienna
Our Final Open Workshop for dissemination will take place in Vienna during the last week of November 2019 (27/11 – 29/11). It will be co-located with the annual Symposium on Geometry and Computational Design (GCD6) which will take place on Nov 29, 2019 at TU Wien’s Kuppelsaal, Karlsplatz 13.
ESRs are encouraged to participate to the KARRIEREZEIT (https://www.tucareerevent.com/) event which will take place on Nov 26-28 at TU Vienna and offers a variety of workshops where around 20 companies will take part. The companies present technical topics/ challenges from their daily business and will work/ discuss with students and graduates about them in 1,5 hrs workshops. KARRIEREZEIT aims to offer students a possibility to get insights from different companies and to get in direct touch with them for their individual questions regarding career and job plans.
Note that KARRIEREZEIT starts a day earlier than the ARCADES Final Workshop so ESRs may want to schedule their travel accordingly. We have made an effort to adjust our program to the KARRIEREZEIT program.
