Every Monday the Uppsala University Information Laboratory meets in room 120, House 19, Polacksbacken. We gather at 15:00 (please have coffee/tea ready: they can be made in the local kitchen), presentations/discussions start at 15:15 and end at 16:00. The meetings are informal, open and no registration is needed, but if you tell us in advance there are higher chances to get some cookies or cakes. You are also welcome if you want to come and talk about something of common interest. The person responsible for organizing the meetings is Davide Vega ( feel free to contact him for any questions.
