User Meeting 2021

November 2020

We do not yet have any concrete plans for the User Meeting 2021 and will set a date as soon as it is clear that the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic allows a meeting. We prefer a face-to-face meeting to a virtual one.

Updated assessment criteria for proposals

December 06, 2019

Please note that future proposals with insufficient information will be strictly rejected. We have adapted our guidelines as follows:

Assessment criteria are scientific value, relevance to KIT research, commitment of user to KNMF, and in the case of returning users, success of previous work, proper reporting and high-value publications arising from the previous proposals. The proposal must include sufficient information to allow the technology experts and reviewers to evaluate the feasibility and scientific excellence of the proposed work.
