Department of Information Technology

2. Åsa presented the plan for the contents of the meetings 2016, see below. It will be in MP-group and on our webpage.

3. Miscellaneous
a. Åsa reminded us not to miss the FESTA seminar the 18th of December (see LäsIT)
b. We decided to have Fika in the staff room between regular meetings. The group decided it should be Wednesdays two weeks exactly from every regular meeting at 14:30. We will be starting in two weeks (9/12). We can take coffee/tea at the staff room and if someone wants to bring something edible to share it’s fine but we don’t order in especially. It should be an open group for anyone interested.
c. Åsa informed that she have got a mail from a Christina Sjögren who asked her to gives tips for gender equality for her employer, a local IT-company, and she suggested possible exchange of experiences on gender. This company were at UTNARM and the WomENcourage.
Suggestions from the group: ICM W can help. Can we start some cooperation (internships at the company)? Can they give guest lecture here? Adriaan can be a contact. They can come here or give an Open house for students? We can invite to a fika. We should make the cooperation visible for the department.
