KT-Colloquium 2023

The KT Colloquium 2023 will take place this year on 21.09. and 22.09.2023 in the Hanseatic and University City of Rostock. In further development of the previous events, the KT Colloquium will now be organized as explained below:

What is the KT Colloquium?
The KT Colloquium will serve as an exchange platform for doctoral students, former staff members and organizers, thus promoting joint research activities and cross-cutting communication between the participating institutes. Doctoral students will receive honest feedback from other doctoral students, professors, experienced researchers and industry representatives, appropriate to the maturity of their work. The focus is on developing competencies in the areas of publishing and presenting as well as getting to know topics outside the project. Networking at staff level is intended to promote topic-related exchange and joint publications. As a platform for former employees of the institutes, they have the opportunity to maintain contact with the network and offer prospective doctoral students a practice-oriented insight into ongoing projects of the companies. The KT Colloquium has had a very friendly character for years. This should be further developed and the network should be even more closely connected.

How are the proceedings of the KT Colloquium published?
There will be no publication of conference proceedings. A Book of Abstracts will be sent in digital form to all participants of the event. The rights to the publication remain with the author, so that the contribution can be further developed and published in another way based on feedback from the audience. If a peer-reviewed publication is desired, the contribution can be submitted to the journal "Konstruktion" for peer review after the KT Colloquium and then published in one of the next issues. The journal "Konstruktion" has a print run of approx. 55,000 copies and is listed on Scopus.
