Abstract:

After the success of the previous edition, this year's event will gather once more PhD students in the fields of astronomy and astrophysics. The meeting offers PhD students the unique opportunity to present their work in a more informal and relaxed setting than at a conventional scientific conference. Moreover, PhD students will have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of astronomy and astrophysics, to learn more about new and exciting topics and techniques, and to socialize with other PhD students from Germany. Moreover, we want to inform PhD students about their future career possibilities. For this reason, we invite speakers from academic and industrial research facilities.
