Please find below the programme of our MultiplEE scientific workshop 2021. The workshop will be held online. Closed internal sessions are for workshop participants presenting only. Open keynotes and parallel sessions are open to everybody who is interested. It will be updated regularly with the latest details regarding sessions and topics, speakers and timelines. The programme is slightly adapted to the digital format.

Please note: If you would like to participate, please pre-register via this form by 12.04.21: We will then provide you with further information how to attend online.
