  • Ideas to write and questions worth answering
  • Introductions of state-of-the-art research
  • A cosy environment to present your research or practice your talk
  • A great place for students with different background to meet, socialize and collaborate.

A: If you want to find out more:

  • We have a  Slack Workspace where things are advertised and people can interact.
  • Subscribe to our  mailing list and we will keep you up-to-date on any future events.

If you are interested in giving a talk:

  • Feel free to contact one of the organizers to discuss the delivery of a talk.
  • We are still looking for organizers. Feel free to contact one of the current organizers to join us!
  • Feel free to tell us your opinions through the Slack workspace or through email directly.
