The 9th Interdisciplinary Symposium for Women in MINT (ISINA) took place at Chemnitz University of Technology (TUC) from March 13th to 14th, 2024. ISINA sees itself as a platform for the transfer of knowledge between women in academia, for the exchange on topics such as “interdisciplinary research” and “success strategies” as well as for the passing on of impulses for innovative forms of work. The initiators of the symposium are Prof. Dr. Olfa Kanoun, holder of the professorship for measurement and sensor technology at the TUC, and Karla Kebsch, equal opportunities officer at the TUC.

After the official welcome of the approximately 50 conference participants by Prof. Dr. Olfa Kanoun and the TUC’s Vice Rector for Research and University Development, Prof. Dr. Anja Strobel, Dr. Nicole Lorenz gave the opening lecture on the topic “Sometimes I think your day has 48 hours”. As managing director of axilaris GmbH Chemnitz, deputy chairwoman of the TUC University Council and mother of three children, she described her everyday life between family manager and managing director. Her recommendations for balancing family and career were the willingness to accept help, not always having to be perfect and fighting for good conditions.

The conference sponsors VECTOR Informatik GmbH and EnviaM offered interesting insights into their companies. Company representatives presented current research and fields of activity during a speed dating session.

Numerous specialist lectures on current topics in science and research were also part of this year’s ISINA program. Among other things, Dr. Kathrin Kuester in her lecture about the material graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms. Since its discovery 20 years ago, this has been one of the most intensively studied 2D materials due to its unusual electronic properties. Dr. Katharina Wagner described the possibilities and challenges of Software Defined Vehicles and Prof. Dr. Agnes Koschmider presented solutions for the efficient processing of unstructured data.

On the second day of the event, participants had the opportunity to choose between four different laboratory tours. They were able to gain interesting insights into the world of atoms, the Fraunhofer IWU research factory, the measurement and sensor technology professorship and the manufacturing process of an organic solar cell.

High-quality soft skills offerings on topics such as “Storytelling in Science”, “The Voice as an Instrument for Scientists” and “Designing Effective Academic Posters” rounded off the ISINA conference.

ISINA new edition in 2025

Save the Date: The Interdisciplinary Symposium ISINA will again be offered in person at the TUC in 2025. The combination of specialist lectures and workshops once again promises an exclusive program. The initiators, Prof. Dr. Olfa Kanoun and Karla Kebsch, hope that in the coming year there will be good cooperation with the faculties, research associations as well as the Fraunhofer Institutes ENAS and IWU and the Council of Scientists for the joint successful promotion and support of young scientists and researchers.
