RD Research Seminar

Bi-monthly online research seminar

Robust Design Seminar Series

The RD SIG would like to invite PhDs and faculty members, who are interested in discussing current Robust
Design research, to participate in an online seminar series. In bi-monthly meetings, the seminars will include
a planned research presentation  as well as an open discussion on collaborative research,
future SIG activities, etc. providing:

  • a regular opportunity to share and discuss ideas and new research in the field of Robust Design,
  • a platform for exploring and mapping out the variety of robustness related research areas,
  • a possibility to better connect and increase collaboration.

If you are interested to participate or also to present your research, please just let us know (SIG contact). We will provide you with all further information and the corresponding meeting invites 

We are looking forward to the discussion
