Social Events

This year we will have two different social activity options. For the more adventurous, we have organized several games of laser tag, while for those of you that would like to take the time to socialize in a more relaxed setting we have organized a relaxed afternoon at Sachsen-Therme. We would like to ask that you choose which social activity you would prefer when you register, as there are only limited spaces for the laser tag and we will be giving them out on a first come, first serve basis. Please also note that you will have to buy your own tram ticket to reach the laser tag venue as it is not within walking distance of the hotel.

Inspired by the success of the previous QMA retreats, the upcoming retreat is organized exclusively for young scientists at the PhD and Postdoc level from ct.qmat to share their research results through scientific presentations and discussions. These presentations will aim to provide an excellent introduction to various research activities of the cluster and empower the participants to build collaborations within the cluster. Additionally, the retreat will feature various fun activities which provide plenty of opportunities to network and socialize in a relaxed atmosphere.
