Do you wonder what keeps the researchers of the AI and CS departments busy? This is the moment to find out! On the 26th of February Cover organises an afternoon where researchers from the AI and CS departments present their research projects.

Ten researchers will each have ten minutes to introduce their research projects. The event will include a coffee/tea break and a reception to close the event which many of the researchers will attend.

Pub Quiz

Mon 29 Feb, 21:00, location T.B.A.

This year is a special year: a leap year! A leap year brings many traditions with it. For example, women have to ask men to a ball. In Scotland a man gets a fine when he refuses a marriage proposal from a woman. There are many more fun facts about leap years.

Therefore we decided to organize a pub quiz! There we will not only test your knowledge about leap years, but also more traditional pub quiz facts. Come join us on the 29th of February!


Wed 2 Mar, 21:30, De Tapperij

It is time for another borrel! And this time with 100 free beers! No fancy stuff, just an old-fashioned Borrel. So if you don't have a good excuse, we expect you to be there. See you then!


Internationalisation Working Group Members

The working group Internationalisation is engaged with defining a plan for involving international students within Cover. What can we do for them and how can we arrange this? How can we involve them without pushing to much? On the other hand, how do we make sure our current (Dutch) members are not forgotten in the process of internationalisation? The goal is to create a report about these matters and present it at a GA.

This working group is looking for an additional international member. So if you want to work together with a few people on defining how Cover should manage internationalisation and develop (new) ideas on how to integrate international members, please send an email to with a short motivation. Deadline: 6 Mar.

CUOS Working Group Members

We want to start a working group to clarify what information CUOS (Central Executive Board for Student Organizations) requires and in what format. Besides that we also want to know if there are possibilities for Cover to improve its position/score.

Next year (’16–’17) CUOS will gauge again for funding, so we want to be done before the end of ’15–’16. We expect the working group to report to the board, with both progress reports and a final report in June.

Interested in joining? Mail Deadline: 28 Feb.
