Lohr am Main
Lohr am Main, known as the “Gateway to the Spessart”, lies in Lower Franconia. Due to the first documentary that mentioned Lohr am Main in 1295, the town had been already the main centre of the county Rieneck (comital domain within the Holy Roman Empire). Lohr am Main offers a medieval town centre with beautiful half-timbered houses and, of course, the magnificent neighbouring Spessart forest in the Mainviereck, a square region bounded on three sides by the river Main. Fun fact: the castle of Lohr seems to be Snow White´s possible birthplace.

The program flyer and the abstract book will be available for download on this website prior to the BCWS and as a printed version on site.

preliminary program

The Winter School starts with a one-day workshop on data presentation for all PhD students on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. TRR130 Postdocs are welcome to join this workshop.

Topics: Poster design/visualising and placing of scientific data/presenting scientific data effectively in a talk/ …

Please bring along the following items to the workshop:

  • a laptop
  • a digital poster (in a file format in which you are allowed to make changes e.g. PowerPoint).
  • If available, a poster in print (old one, doesn´t need to be yours).
  • In case you are required to use a layout format, which e.g. your department asks you to use, please bring it along.

Presentations and Poster Session
PhD students are strongly encouraged to give a talk (15 min & 15 min Q&A). Generally, about half of the PhD students present orally. There are very limited time slots reserved for talks by TRR130 Postdocs. If you are interested, please let us know via the registration form. All participants will receive an abstract book. Participants with a poster or talk need to send their abstract by e-mail to ute.moniatte@uk-erlangen.de.

Deadline for abstract submissions: Monday, 20 January 2020.

Round table discussions
If possible, all PIs, Postdocs and PhD students should participate at the round table discussions. This event allows discussing PhD projects, specific data, problems and/or methods within small groups of PIs and PhD students. New PhD students in the IRTG must prepare a specific aims page about their project that will be discussed during the round table discussions. We will set up about 5-6 discussion groups. PhD students, who want to discuss their project or prepare a specific aims page, can state with whom they prefer to discuss their project during the registration process.

Thesis Advisory Committee (TAC) Meetings
We can arrange TAC meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday evening (18.30 – 19.30) as well as on Wednesday and Thursday morning (8.30 – 9.30). Please see also the preliminary program above. PhD students can state if they would favour organizing their TAC meeting during the BCWS during the registration process. The coordinator will prepare a time schedule for possible TAC meetings in line with the registration details of the PIs and informs all involved participants by e-mail. Please provide your exact arrival and departure details that will enable us to schedule as many TAC meetings as possible. Thank you!

Reimbursement for PIs and Postdocs
The IRTG covers the costs for accommodation including meals, but cannot reimburse any travel expenses.
