CMMS Retreat 2022

Retreat in Franconian Switzerland

From 05 to 09 September 2022, the CMMS Retreat 2022 with 21 participating researchers took place in Gößweinstein in the beautiful Franconian Switzerland .

After more than two years of difficulties in planning and holding conferences and retreats due to the pandemic, the members of the CMMS project were finally able to make up for the one-week retreat in Franconian Switzerland, which had unfortunately been postponed several times. 14 PhD students, one postdoc, 5 supervisors and one external speaker met at the conference hotel Behringers in Gößweinstein and participated in a diverse program of courses, project work, discussions of the Center for Multiscale Modelling in Life Sciences as well as kayaking, caving and hiking tours.

In a very good scientific and interpersonal atmosphere, participants presented their individual project and gave an overview of their current research activities. Crash courses on topics such as Machine Learning and AI, Stochastics and others took place in the mornings. Various new project ideas were intensively discussed and further developed in small groups in order to be able to work together in a network beyond the retreat. On the last evening, the external speaker Prof. Dr. Ursula Klingmüller gave a lecture with the topic: "Unravelling the functionality of Erythropoietin – From the cellular level towards the patient scale".

Due to the wonderful location in the middle of nature, social and sports activities were also planned. A great kayak tour on the Wiesent river, short or long hikes in and around Gößweinstein, Tüchersfeld and Pottenstein in small groups and an individually guided cave tour through a so-called "wild" cave not accessible to tourists completed the program.
