Our goal with VIScon is to inspire students to innovate and push the boundaries of what is possible. Having experienced that there is so much more to computer science and related fields than what could ever be covered during the lectures, we would like to take our attendees on a journey to explore what lies beyond. We aim to turn students into visionaries by providing them with a platform to openly exchange ideas and discuss current problems and potential solutions with experts, hoping that this will help them solve crucial challenges and make a difference.
In contrast to the VIS Kontaktparty, which is the largest academic recruiting fair in Switzerland, VIScon’s main focus lies on engaging talks, exciting workshops and interesting discussions. We believe that such interactions, accompanied by company presentations at the Kontaktparty, are one of the best ways to connect with the next generation of computer scientists and build a valuable network. Hundreds of tech-enthusiasts, hackers, theoreticians and hobbyists will attend this year’s Symposium on the 16th of October either in person or virtually to listen to talks, take part in workshops and gain valuable insights. We would love for you to be one of them!
