ESCoP 2009, Krakow

By | 2009-09-04T09:50:17+00:00 September 4th, 2009|Conference and Talks, PhD|

Yesterday was my poster presentation which was successful and fun. I talked for about 2 hours with a Ph.D student from France who is also engaged in distributed practice. We had a fruitful discussion about the problems and the challenges in this research field. It was super nice to talk to someone who is interested in the same thing.

I hope that we keep in touch. 🙂

In general, the conference is going well. In addition, the venue and the city are amazing and I’m looking forward to the next two days.

Dissertation Proposal

By | 2009-04-15T11:24:51+00:00 April 15th, 2009|PhD|

I’m currently working on my dissertation proposal which is due June 2nd.

This encourages/forces 😉 me to allot time to write down what I have done so far.

That is a good feature of attending Grad School.

Take care, C.

Plans, plans, plans

By | 2015-12-06T15:10:49+00:00 January 19th, 2009|PhD|

This year is dedicated to grad school courses, my dissertation proposal, and experiments. I will have to take 6 grad school courses this semester which means a lot of work and writing. In addition, I will have to hand in my final dissertation proposal by June 1st, 2009.

Also, I would like to attend a summer school and a conference this year. I still have figure out which ones though. Any suggestions?

Thus, things will keep me pretty busy!
