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: Intel, Pearl Cohen Zedek Latzar Baratz, NVIDIA, Vishay, Science Abroad.
