Our CHESS All Staff Meeting from 22 – 23 March 2017 was successfully concluded at the splendid Solstrand Hotel at Os. The 2-day meeting was attended by 55 participants including some external guests. It was well balanced with 30 PhD students and a record high number of 20 supervisors. All together there were 18 oral/lecture and 19 poster presentations during the meeting. Apart from participating in the scientific presentations and discussions, CHESS members had also enjoyed the great social experience and sporting activities at the well-facilitated hotel.
The meeting started off with a brief welcome speech by CHESS leader Thomas Spengler, followed by a fun social game which eased the participants into the coming presentations and discussions. After lunch, participants had some free time for socializing, or outdoor and sporting activities. The first day finished with a poster session and dinner.
Presentations continued in the second day with a poster session in between. The meeting was concluded with a summing up and evaluation session, where the external evaluators, students and supervisors had given very valuable feedback and suggestions for future courses and All Staff meetings. Some students also expressed their appreciation for the great feedback they received on how to improve their Research.
On behalf of the CHESS secretariat, I would like to thank all the participants who had made the meeting a successful event!
