IVS Student Conference 2020

IVS Student Conference 2020

This year the conference is being held on Zoom due to the gathering restrictions imposed by COVID-19. It has allowed us to experiment and tweak the usual face-to-face conference setup and make it more interactive and interesting. The conference will have the following highlights:

  • Two keynote speakers, Prof. Andrew Rappe (U. Penn) and Prof. Shlomo Magdassi (HUJI), will introduce a broad topic that will be followed by extensive discussions with students.

  • Three parallel sessions running where students present their work and hold extensive discussions. The format will be 10 minutes presentation and 10 minutes discussion.

  • Flash talk: quick presentation (5 mins) and discussion (5 mins).

  • Career panel with key representatives from industry and academia, Dr. Malachi Noked (BIU) and Prof. Maya Bar-Sadan (BGU), discussing 'Career Path Choices' for MSc and Ph.D. students as well as Post docs.

  • The career panel will be followed by dedicated breakout rooms hosted by companies: IntelPearl Cohen Zedek Latzar BaratzNVIDIAVishayScience Abroad.
