"The age of information - power, risks, chances"
The Max Planck Symposium is an intensive, two-day career conference serving as a platform to connect international Max Planck Alumni and Max Planck Early Career Researchers of all disciplines and Institutes. The topic of every symposium is suggested and realized by the participants themselves, who are then supported by high level experts and invited guests. Following two years of completely digital symposia, we'll attempt a hybrid symposium in 2022 with a limited 100 participation slots at the Harnack-House and unlimited participation slots online. The main programme with keynotes, focus talks, workshops and panels will take place from 2pm - 8pm, allowing the participation from all time zones. Additionally, all onsite participants will have the opportunity to participate in exciting onsite satellite events, such as an onboarding brunch with external guests, a cultural running dinner, and a Berlin rooftop mixer.

Registration to start around May 15th 2022.
