ATTO Meeting 2021

Safe the date!

In light of the ongoing pandemic, this year’s ATTO meeting will take place virtually in the week of October 4 – 8.

We want to be mindful of different time zones and the challenges of virtual meetings. Therefore, we have decided to spread out the meeting over 3-5 half days, depending on the number of registered presenters. Sessions will take place in the mornings in Brazil, and afternoons in Germany, accordingly.  The meeting will mainly consist of

  • poster sessions, which we will organize via GatherTown, with a short PICO-style talk for each poster
  • a few invited talks each day
  • dedicated times for discussion groups, organized via ZOOM and with additional resources by GatherTown.

Registration is now open for all project members.

Those, who want to present at the workshop and/or want to submit ideas for discussion groups, should register by August 23. This is necessary to give the session conveners time to prepare and plan the sessions. Registration for attendees without a presentation will remain open until September 30.

Registration is necessary for all who wish to attend the workshop, as the links for the virtual meeting platform will only be distributed to registered attendees.

More information will follow in the coming weeks. Check back for updates!
