Report With the help of Research School Plus I was able to participate in the “International Conference on Learning Theory” in Singapore in October 2013. The conference was held at the National University of Singapore, which so large that they need several bus lines on campus. The conference itself was very interesting; it offered the rare opportunity to meet and discuss with many fellow PhD students and post-docs from my own field of research in one place. Since my own paper, written together with co-authors from Bochum and Canada, was accepted to appear in the proceedings, I also had to give a talk. This talk at one of the major conferences of my own field was a great opportunity to highlight my research and our group in Bochum. It is also good opportunity to draw attention to problems you are interested in and to start new collaborations. Overall the experience was extremely valuable to me and I have to thank Research School Plus to have made my travel to Singapore possible.
