Key formats of "Closed Cycles 2020"

In response to the Covid-19 / Corona crisis, the Closed Cycles 2020 symposium will be 100% virtual. The adaptations of the formats and the program outline are noted in square brackets below. They are currently in discussion and subject to changes.

The main concern of this symposium is to create time for a deeper exchange on Ecological Engineering and its implications! This is reflected in the session formats listed below.

  • Keynotes: Topics of general interest, related to ecological engineering (Presentation of 30 min + 15 min discussion) [live stream, recorded]

  • Tasks: In-depth discussion and reflection about unsolved complex planning challenges  (max. 1/3 presentation, min. 2/3 facilitated discussion) [online workshop, unrecorded, limited participation]

  • Parallel Sessions: Short presentations of research results, technologies, approaches from the field of ecological engineering (max. 1/2 presentation, min. 1/2 discussion) [live stream, recorded]

  • Poster Sessions [under construction]
  • Virtual activities organized by students [to be defined, ZHAW student group is brainstorming]
