All participants get together to meet each other and collaboratively make a schedule for the next day. Whether you're interested in giving a demo of your work, debating issues around research and publishing, speaking about side projects you're working on - this is the time to propose your ideas over drinks and snacks. At the end of the night, we'll have the complete schedule for the next day.
Welcome words, brief explanation of the day.
