The SCS Fall Meeting 2022, one of the largest annual research conferences in Switzerland, took place at Irchel Campus of the University of Zurich on Thu, September 8, 2022. More than 800 participants attended the event, including many young scientists in education in Switzerland, for whom the fall meeting is a great platform to present their research - often for the first time ever at a major conference. After two years of online events due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we were finally able to hold the event on site. We received more than 450 contributions for a talk or poster presentation in one of the 9 parallel sessions.
