Okay, the title might be a bit clickbait. We do not yet know whether we are chosen to organise an SNiC. In early May, we are planning to present a proposal via the central meeting of the foundation. We will of course do our utmost to present the best proposal and be chosen to present the SNiC in 2022.

The Program Committee for Computer Science is again looking for student members for the coming academic year! This committee, consisting of both teachers and students, is the representative advisory body closest to the study program itself, and therefore plays an important role in the quality of the study program. About once (and very sometimes twice) per block, the committee meets to, among other things, evaluate the subjects and discuss the points that are currently relevant within the program. If this seems interesting to you, you can apply until Wednesday April 21, and you may be elected to participate in the OC next year!
