The IVS-MRS Student Zoom-Conference July, 20

COVID-19 will not cancel the IVS-MRS student 2020 conference after all. Originally scheduled in Bar Ilan University, the event will now take place online via Zoom on July 20.

In lieu of face-to-face meetings, several virtual sessions will run parallelly, where students will present their work and ideas to their peers and will engage in interactive discussions. What’s more? Guest lectures, virtual poster sessions, a career panel, and separate virtual rooms with various companies. This event will continue to reaffirm an uninterrupted flow of knowledge during this global pandemic.

Stay tuned
