Following the poster session the guests arrived at the restaurant, where they were given their name tags and greeted with a welcome drink. On a whiteboard there was a map and stickers, and all participants were encouraged to put a sticker on their country of origin. By the end of the party, a multinational and multicultural community emerged, where people from different fields and different parts of the world were mingling and socializing. Throughout the party an exquisite three course meal was served to all guests as well as drinks.

As the first performer, Klaus Kröncke (Associate Professor in Mathematics) played the piano during the dinner entertaining the guests with lovely music choices.

Towards the end of the evening the rock band Lüdersband, performed on stage, with great rock hits, leaving the audience in awe. It is worth-noting that the band was formed a few months earlier for the purpose of the event and practiced hard specifically for this performance! The members of the band are:

Philip Croné (PhD at Engineering Mechanics)

Armin Halilovic (PhD at Engineering Mechanics)

Erik Jungstedt (PhD at Engineering Mechanics)

Klaus Kröncke (Associate Professor in Mathematics)

Soon after, all guests were making their way to the dance floor. Music rhythms and energetic dance moves kept the party going until midnight.
