SBX Research meetings

Research meetings take place on Thursdays, from 13:15 until fika, and are normally open for everybody at SBX.

Researcher! You are expected to provide scholarly content for at least one slot (provide a draft to be internally peer-reviewed; rehearse a talk; suggest an article to be read and discussed; a problem to be solved jointly...). Write down your suggestion(s) below (I WOULD LIKE TO). Please do that by August 31, 2022.

If you also want something to happen that you yourself cannot do (for instance, have a tutorial on a certain topic), use the I WOULD LIKE SOMEBODY ELSE TO category.

  • provide a draft paper for internal peer-review (Sasha; Yvonne): September or October
