The organization committee agreed on a online-only conference mode for KUI 2021.

Given the increasing COVID-19 cases in Germany, quarantine decrees for unvaccinated travelers arriving from high risk countries, and projection for the upcoming weeks, a on-site conference does not seem to be realizable and does not feel right. We are sad about the decision made as we also would have enjoyed inspiration by presentations with subsequent face-to-face discussions, networking opportunities, and scientific exchange. However, we give highest priority to the health and safety of attendees and shift the conference to the Internet.

The conference programme was updated for online mode. All times are CEST = UTC+2 time zone.
