    organized by the Turing Centre at ETH Zürich
  • Collective Behavior: What can research on human and non-human animals learn from each other?
    organized by the Centre for the Advanced Study of Collective Behaviour at the University of Konstanz

In addition, the Computational Methods Working Group (CMWG) Zurich is organizing a networking and a career event:

The conference program will be hosted on iStage, and almost 200 video presentations will be accessible at any time to participants. To foster interaction and discussion, they are bundled in parallel sessions of four presentations each for synchronous watching and subsequent discussion with authors in live session chats. These sessions will be rerun for watch parties in different time zones, to allow live participation in multiple parallel sessions, and to let authors choose their availability in the session chats.

Three poster sessions are hosted on and accessible from iStage. Posters are displayed in dedicated rooms, and additional meeting space is provided. Poster presenters can linger next to their posters or be contacted directly to explain them to interested participants.

All attendees are expected to comply with the conference code of conduct.
