Due to Covid-19 and the ongoing uncertainties we are not able to organize the conference with in-person attendance. Even by the end of the year we may not all be vaccinated and ensure a safe event for all.

Nevertheless, we hereby announce a free online alternative. From September 2nd until September 3rd 2021 (1pm-6pm German time) there will be a conference with four panels (with 8-10 papers) and two keynote speeches. It will be accessible via either Webex or Zoom, the access data will be sent to you in due time.

If you do not wish to participate or recieve further information, please notify us so we can take your name off the mailing list. If you want to participate and have not recieved an email from us yet, feel free to contact us via the conference's mailing address (
