The Master Classes will be held the day preceding the opening of the Conference (7th November 2022). These classes are an excellent opportunity for young researchers to join two experts from their research field for a session of discussions and exchanges, and establish connections with individuals from other institutions working in the same or closely related fields. In these classes a group of selected Master and Doctoral students will have an opportunity to make an extended (30 to 40 min) presentation of their research, which will form the basis for the discussions.
For selected Master and PhD students registered in River Flow 2022 conference, the Master classes are free of charge.
Acceptance to the Master Classes does not take into account whether or not a paper is being presented at River Flow 2022. However, participation in the Master Class requires registration to the conference.
Applications for the Master Classes will be open from June 15 to July 31, 2022.
