GTT Users’ Meeting 2021

Last year our yearly Users‘ Meeting took place as a webinar. It was a huge success with more than 150 participants from all over the world! 

Because of the present situation of the CoViD-19 pandemia, we intend to organize again in 2021 an on-line GTT Users‘ Meeting. It will have a similar format to the last GTT Users‘ Meeting in 2020. 

There will be two sessions, each one with 6 to 8 presentations and the event will take place on Wednesday June 23rd and on Thursday June 24th. We are excited to welcome people from all over the world to the 23rd GTT Users’ Meeting! 

Video presentations available!

Program (all times in CEST)

The presentations will be recorded in advance with our support and we will broadcast them during the period of the on-line Users’ Meeting. After and during each presentation, the audience can ask questions in a chat. These questions will be answered by the presenter after the presentation. Thus, we hope to ensure lively discussions. 

Participation is open to everyone and is free of charge, but please note that registration is required.

Registrations will be accepted until Monday, June 21st 2021, 23:59 CEST.
