CSS Team Winter Symposium

As a special edition to our monthly CSS Seminar, we are happy to announce the CSS Team Winter Symposium which also serves as a farewell celebration of the CSS team at Centre Marc Bloch. The team, under leadership of Camille Roth, has been around since 2012 and is coming to an end in its current format. We would like to celebrate over 11 years of CSS research done by current and past members of the team, by showcasing some of our work to researchers at CMB and to anyone else interested in CSS-related topics.

The event will take place on 12 December, from 2pm to 6pm, at Centre Marc Bloch (Berlin), in the Tillion room. After 6pm, there will be time for discussions and general networking, for which — in usual CSS seminar style — we will provide drinks and food.

We will start with a brief introduction by Camille Roth at 2pm and then commence with the programme. There will be two 15-minute coffee breaks, one at 3.30pm and one at 4.45pm. We look forward to seeing you there!

The seminar is organised with the financial support of the ERC-funded grant Socsemics (grant #772743).
