Conferences

What is the purpose of research? Accumulating data in the Ivory Tower and keeping them there? – Certainly not. Only the sharing of results with other researchers can yield synergy, especially, when it transcends disciplinary boundaries. At the same time, one usually receives most valuable impulses at conferences. Also, presenting one’s results allows their utilisation in the Real World out there. This is why S.A.C.S. participates in a wide spectrum of conferences.
