With the recent lifting of state-of-emergency and (fortunate) decline of daily new cases of COVID-19, the laboratory has decided to meet on a weekly basis to talk about research and academic matters casually (i.e. snacks or coffee). We also maintain social distancing and ensure proper ventilation in the room.
Some topics include students’ status of their classes or some interesting stuff they find. Furthermore, we also do brief tutorials on tools that may be useful for research.
Of course, the lab members can still discuss freely outside this meeting through other means like Slack or Zoom. The schedule may change in the future, depending on the policies of the university against COVID-19.
