SYNS Summit Agenda

·       1:30pm - 2:00pm: Introductions & coffee

·       2:00pm - 4:00pm:  I’d like to learn from...
SYNS participants play a kind of "six degrees of separation" game where speakers are nominated to share their unique perspective on a given topic, who then nominate another person ‘to learn something from’, until six people have given talks on a variety of topics.

·       4:00pm - 6:00pm: Paper unwind
Four researchers are invited to “unwind” a recent paper of theirs, to tell the real story behind the birth and evolution of the paper - from idea generation to collaboration, from technical challenges to writing and publishing the paper.

·       6:00pm - 9:00pm: Dinner and social (location: TBD)
Concluding a day of learning, we will get our first taste of Burlington with new friends.
