Report The financial support from the Research School Plus enabled me to present my first scientific output on the internationally acclaimed 10th Euroconference on Rock Physics and Rock Mechanics in Aussois (Rhone-Alpes region in south-eastern France) in May 2014 . I have just started my Ph.D.-project and especially at such an early phase it was very important to participate at such a conference to understand academic and scientific problems, approaches and communications. The given presentations in neighboring fields allowed me to broaden my horizon. Also I largely benefited from discussions with international experts, who are working on the same topics as I do. Their feedback is highly motivating and this helps me to pursue my own research. All in all, it was a magnificent experience and opportunity to state my views and to get the mostup to date state of relevant research studies.
