The conference was accompanied by the networking session and several social activities to stimulate an exchange between the participants beyond the scientific level and to enable intercultural networking, one of the main objectives of IONS Karlsruhe 2015.

Besides the scientific and social program, OSKar arranged a photo competition devoted to the International Year of Light 2015. Since this part of the conference was intended as an outreach project towards the general public, it was held in Karlsruhe’s main train station. In addition to the outreach aspect, the exhibition at the train station gave us the opportunity to welcome our participants at the point where they reached the city first.

The organization of IONS Karlsruhe 2015 was a tremendous effort by our whole student chapter, but it also resulted in very rewarding three days. The feedback from the participants has been unequivocally positive. Despite the work, we would love to repeat organizing a conference like this again in the future, because we think it can be an important experience of every young researcher’s life. The experience gained in terms of project management, intercultural communication, time-management and the volunteering for a professional society are invaluable.
