As part of the 2021 European Computer Science Summit 
<https://www.informatics-europe.org/ecss/home.html> (ECCS) held in 
Madrid/online, the *Workshop on Career Development for Young 
Researchers* will take place on *Monday 25 October 2021.*

The goal of the workshop, organised by Elisabetta Di Nitto 
<https://dinitto.faculty.polimi.it> (Politecnico di Milano) and Standa 
Živný <https://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/standa.zivny/> (University of Oxford), is 
to support young researchers (PhD students and Postdocs) in the 
development of their soft skills related to presentation abilities, 
networking, developing a research plan, and connections to industry.

Invited speakers include Geraldine Fitzpatrick 
<http://igw.tuwien.ac.at/hci/people/gfitzpatrick> (TU Wien), Lynda 
Hardman <https://www.cwi.nl/people/lynda-hardman> (CWI), Justyna Petke 
<http://www0.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/J.Petke/> (UCL), and Wolfgang Emmerich 
(Zühlke <https://www.zuehlke.com/en>) as well as further speakers from 
industry. They will present their experience in creating a strong 
collaboration network, improving their leadership abilities, developing 
high-quality research, and moving the research into industry.

Attendees of the workshop will attend invited talks and have the 
opportunity to actively participate in discussions. Moreover, they can 
submit their CV (up to 2 pages) and a research statement (up to 5

<http://ceur-ws.org/> for online publication) and young researchers will 
present them in front of the broader ECCS audience in the form of a poster.
