Table talks about Master projects

As in recent years, Master students from different Swiss Universities will have the opportunity to present their projects during table talks (breakout sessions). The talks will last about 15 min and the participants are invited to join this informal setting to learn more about the different projects, ask questions and provide some hints to the students.

SwissMeteoPhoto Contest

We will organise a SwissMeteoPhoto Contest in which you will be encouraged to submit your best picture of any meteorological phenomenon you have seen in Switzerland. The pictures will be rated by the participants of the symposium. The best picture will be awarded. Information about participation will follow soon.
