Coming 30th November the 2022 Edition of the SNiC Congress - CelerIT will take place in the Parktheater in Eindhoven.
First, for those of you that aren’t all too familiar, a little more about the SNiC Congress: The SNIC congress itself takes place yearly in November, in a different city every year. It attracts hundreds of students from all throughout the country. It’s a single-day event where lots of speakers come and give an interesting talk about state-of-the-art technology or practices in the aforementioned fields. Not only is the day filled with exciting presentations about innovation, during the breaks and after the event you’re also able to have a chat with any of the participating companies of the congress. They can tell you a lot about career-related questions and projects that their companies are currently working on related to the themes of the congress.
Now for what makes this year’s edition special. As it may not be very obvious, CelerIT (pronounced Celer - IT) is a play on the word Celerity, which in turn is not a very common word. The word can be described as meaning the swiftness of motion. We have chosen to translate this definition into an interpretation that is applicable to our field of science. Our congress will be all about the bigger picture of how fast technology has been, and still is, evolving. In other words, the swiftness of the rise and fall of technological developments in these fields, where we look both at what has been, the present and what’s still to come.
Now on to mention a few names that will be presenting on CelerIT!
One of our speakers, Philippe Schoonejans, is a project manager at human and robotic exploration for ESA (the European Space Agency). After decades of experience he is currently helping develop a space arm for sampling material from Mars.
Another innovative researcher, Amanda Prorok, works in the field of multi-agent and multi-robot systems. Her lab’s research team focuses on finding new ways to coordinate artificially intelligent agents. This involves a very methodological approach to solving many-faceted logistical challenges and has numerous applications to real world systems.
You may have heard of a YouTube channel by the name of 3Blue1Brown. They explore challenging (sometimes mind-boggling) problems in mathematics and adjacent fields and present them in a format such that they can be comprehended with little to no prior knowledge while still diving deep into their complexity in a very enticing presenting style.
TL;DR Join us on the 30th of November in Eindhoven for an inspiring and engaging congress featuring innovative talks about computer science, company contact and discussion panels; lunch, borrel and dinner included!
