Taking advantage of the presence of a wide variety of experts in different topics meeting for CCS, we are organising a three-day informal event for PhD students and early-stage scientists. You will have the opportunity to attend talks by prominent researchers, learn about the scientific and life experience of young and senior colleagues, and – last but not least – have fun and socialize.


Warm-up: October 13-15, 2023, the weekend just before the Conference on Complex Systems.


🇧🇷 at SENAI CIMATEC in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil (same as CCS)

🌐 online (for a symbolic fee of 5€ only, check it out!)


Here are a few things that you can expect to happen during the event:

  • talks about behind the scenes aspects of scientific work,
  • an interactive workshop on challenging aspects of academia,
  • specifically tailored trivia games,
  • an on-site social event.

The sessions will be divided by lunch and coffee breaks, where participants may chat with their peers. If you are unable to join us in person, do not despair – the event will have an online counterpart with its own social activities!


All the times shown here are in Brazilian time (BRT)!
