New term! New chances!

Exams are over! At least for almost everyone at this point. I hope it all went great for you. If not, I included some extra jokes this week to heighten your mood. Enjoy, and have some last nice relaxing days before the new term starts!

Coen van Leeuwen is coming to talk about their research on a new algorithm for solving Distributed Constraint Optimization Problems (DCOPs), called CoCoA. These are problems where a set of distributed agents have to co-operate in order to reach a common goal. He talks about this and more in the upcoming Company Talk from TNO on Monday 15:00. If you are interested or want to learn more about it click here.

The TAD+ for this month is a pub quiz! You will group up with 2 or 3 other people and write down answers to questions from different categories. The winning team will get a prize! There will, as always, also be free snacks and drinks (until supplies last). Get more information on the website.

The ParenTee is the committee responsible for showing the studies and university to students' parents. They do this by organising a parents day where you can invite your parents to take a tour. If you want to show your parents or your peers parents around, sign up for this committee.


The PubliciTee is the committee that designs, create and prints posters for Cover. They assure the quality of the Cover's posters, so that committees are able to focus on other tasks, without having to worry about posters.


Is there a topic of which you could never tire? You would like to hear about different experts from the field for a whole afternoon? Then organising a symposium is right up your alley! The SympoCee organises a symposium every year for this very purpose, to educate Cover members on a wider range of topics.


The YearbookCee is very much self explanatory. They create the yearbook for every academic year. In this committee you get to decide the theme, design and create the content of the yearbook. You want a way to make your mark in Cover for years to come? The best place to do this is in the Yearbook.
