In addition to the presentation of dissertation topics and their discussion by those present, there was a workshop in which previous dissertations at the institute were structurally analyzed in group work. On Friday, former employees and student assistants joined the group and the various research projects, news from the institute as well as the companies and associated work of former employees were presented. Another part of the seminar were team building events: the hike through the Breitachklamm as well as the ascent of the mount Hoher Ifen towards the end of the seminar. The event was supported by the Förderverein des Instituts für Numerische Methoden und Informatik im Bauwesen der Technischen Universität Darmstadt e.V. (Website, please refer to German version for more details).
We would like to thank everyone for participating and contributing towards an interesting seminar and are looking forward to next year. A special thank you goes to Steffen Franz for organizing the event.
