Wishes and memories on 20 years IF

The summer university Informatica Feminale will celebrate its 20th anniversary this August.

You all are THE “IF”, because the summer universities are characterized by your commitment as lecturers and participants!
We are planning the birthday celebrations and warmly invite you to participate. We also ask for your support today!

There will be several ways to celebrate:
– Officially on Wednesday, August 9th, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in building MZH room 1470 at Bremen University campus.
– Wildly celebrated in our networking parties on both the Saturdays (12th and 19th August) from 7:00 p.m. at Teerhof.

With you support we would like to show 20 years of IF. Therefore we have started a summer Call for Contributions!

We do not expect any SUN work station or any kind floppy disk collection. We are looking forward to your memories, comments, criticism, congratulations, retrospects…

If you prefer to answer to this e-mail, we would like to ask the following questions on the 20-years of IF:

Those amongst you, who would like to look deep into their office cupboards or your catch-all bag, are invited to send us or bring with you physical stuff (like the biggest chip, the nicest mouse, the most brilliant sticker, or the lost programming book). And your toys from 10 years ago are welcome, too. 🙂

Or mail us your “best/most annoying/… sounds of your earlier workplace tools”!
Send it to <ifis-summerschools@uni-bremen.de>

Suggestions on further ways to participate are always welcome!
Looking forward to any surprises and wild exchange action!

Best regards
Veronika Oechtering
