Meet Up: Inaugural Canberra meetup

Solvent 30 January 2014 05:03PM

WHEN: 12 February 2014 07:30:00PM (-0800)

WHERE: CSIT Building, Acton ACT 2601, Australia

(I'm posting this on behalf of my lurker friend.)

WHEN: 12 February 2014 07:30:00PM(+1100) WHERE: CSIT Building, Blg 108, North Road, ANU

This will be the first meetup in Canberra! We will get to know each other and play board games, joining the weekly board games night held by the ANU Computer Science Students' Association. Vegan-friendly snacks and board games will be provided (although if anyone has board games, it would be great if you could bring your own). I will be waiting at the main door of the building from 7:20 to 7:40 to show people to the room where we will be meeting.

This is the (long-term, no longer) lurker friend of which Solvent speaks! I would like to be able to have enough karma to post these myself, so if people could upvote this comment, that would be useful.

ETA: have learnt more about the mechanics of the site, now realise that this is not necessary. Thanks to whoever did upvote me though!

As there is likely to be overlap in interest - CFAR is doing its first workshop outside of the USA, and this will be in Australia. It is on Feb 21, and essentially sold out, and then there is a second workshop on Feb 28. Both are in Melbourne. If you are interested, you can arrange to talk to Kenzi and click 'admission interview' and she will give you more information to make a decision, and potentially also leading to a further interview for any desired financial aid.
