Research in times of Covid-19

Zoom, Slack and Co. - The new shape of international conferences

Research is not only code development, dataset curation and tinkering with the hardware of an experiment - it is also, to a considerable extent, the exchange with colleagues at international conferences.

These conferences take on a completely different appearance in times of pandemics. Prof. Burgard, Head of BrainLinks-BrainTools and Program Chair of the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2020), gave a comprehensive interview in which he describes the challenges and opportunities of online conferences.

The ICRA 2020 will be held online from 31 May 2020. A registration is still possible.
