The LISA Summer Academy 2021 was different from previous years. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Steering Committee decided to hold LISA as an online Summer Academy this year. LISA was thus a one-week event and unfortunately without the lab rotations usually offered, the cultural social program, and the informal gatherings with alumni and faculty.
Instead, a digital education program consisting of lectures, key note lectures, workshops, virtual lab tours, poster presentations, etc. was offered.
If the situation allows it in 2022, LISA will again take place as a face-to-face event in the usual scope.
