YoMos Workshop 2023
22-26th May, Schloss Hohenroda (registration will open soon)

What to expect

​The young modellers in ecology workshops offer a relaxed and open-minded atmosphere that encourages the exchange of experiences and ideas with other young researchers and our invited keynote speakers. The workshop is directed at early stage scientists (Bachelor, Master or PhD students) who in any way are connected to ecological modelling through their project/work.

As part of the workshop, all participants may present their work either as a lightning talk (5 min short summary of your project) or presentation (15 min standard talk) with opportunities for discussions and feedback. Moreover, if there are certain skills you could share, propose your own student-led workshop (it's a fun experience)!


After three years of online workshops, we are now finally coming back to the analog format. Therefore we chose "Schloss Hohenroda", which is situated very central in Germany (halfway between Fulda and Kassel). You can easily get there by public transport (train + bus)! The participation fee will be 200€. We are currently contacting potential keynote speakers, so stay tuned!


Registration for the workshop will open soon, so be sure to check this page again!

Q&A Section (in case the workshop takes place online)

Which platform will the workshop be based on?

The workshop will be hosted via Zoom (preferably use the app for better stability of the video stream).

How will the presentations be given?

Presentations can be a lightning talk (5 mins, e.g. for projects in an early stage) or a "normal" presentation (15 mins, with the possibility to discuss your results with the group), which will be moderated by our organisation team.

Wouldn't discussions end up being one big buzz?

To avoid this from happening, there are special rules for speaking. Everyone but the presenter will be muted by the moderators by default. If a question comes up or there is something you would like to say, just let the moderator know and they will pass on the "mic" to you!
