All SICSS PhD members who will submit their thesis until End of March 2019, please be prepared to give a talk on your research project on the retreat. The talk should be 15 minutes long plus 3 minutes discussion. At the beginning of each session, the session chair will ask you to give a one minute teaser on your talk.

The program will be announced shortly.
