Do you know who I am?

Hello there,

I have kidnapped Fabi and taken over this newsletter, but don’t worry, you will have him back by next week. However, the question remains: Who am I?

One might say I am the soon-to-be-new-Fabi, or one might call me the Candidate Chair. Another might know me while not knowing it is me, but that is all I can tell you for now... I will however tell you a well-kept secret: You can find out about the identities of all the Candidate Board members at the upcoming Announcement Social at De Brouwerij on Tuesday the 23rd of May. The announcement takes place at 22:00, but make sure to be there at 21:00 to grab some free beer and speculate on who we might be.

This is of course not the only exciting event coming up that is worth checking out. For one, on the 23rd (13:00 - 15:00) there is the ASML Lunch Lecture “From a Student to an Engineer”. If you are curious about what ASML does or what it is like to work for them as a design engineer this is the talk for you.

If you have not had enough of partying after the social on Tuesday, the Neon Party will be the activity for you. Come by on Thursday the 25th of May at 21:30 at All Round Groningen for a night filled with colour, lights, and fun, together with De Chemische Binding (there may or may not be free drinks involved - hint, hint).

And finally, brace yourself and get ready for an extraordinary adventure at the Members Day, where the exhilarating rides and captivating activities of the Efteling theme park await. Although the sign-ups are closed, you can still put your name down on the waiting list if you don’t have a ticket yet.

See you soon, raccoon!

We want you to be in a committee!

⚠️ Here is a cool thingy for our new members: Ever heard of a committee? A committee is a group of friends that work towards a common goal. You can learn about all sorts of topics such as budgeting, planning, sponsoring, and much more! See the website for a complete overview of committees that are looking for members!

🏠 The RoomCee is responsible for making sure the Cover room is kept open and fully stocked with snacks and drinks. The room is a nice place to waste your time and keeping it that way is our number one priority. Every thursday at 16:00, there is a social in the room, the TAD. You're invited to come by for a beer or soda!

Are you interested in joining a committee? Don't hesitate to contact Alexandra, our Commissioner of Internal Affairs!

Nice to know

The AI Safety Initiative Groningen is organizing a Machine Learning Reliability and Verifiability hackathon. It will take place from 26th May at 19:00 to 28th May at 20:00. You can sign up via this form ( < 3 minutes):

No prior experience in ML reliability & verifiability needed! You will learn all you need to know during the hackathon, so anyone with basic knowledge of Machine Learning can join!
