SAC Retreat 19-22 October 2015

Dear SAC members,

We would like to invite you to the 4th SAC Scientific Retreat, which will take place from 19-22 October, 2015, in Skagen.

Three years after it was founded, SAC has successfully extended to six international nodes, and is taking part in several world wide instrumental projects. In the context of the midterm evaluation, and of the application for the extension of our Centre of Excellence, it is time to review the present state of our collaborations and discuss the strategic plan for the upcoming years. The reflexion will be conducted through scientific talks, splinter sessions and workshops.

The format of the meeting will also include a poster session. We ask each member, including the non-scientific staff, to bring a poster: what would you like to share with SAC? This could be scientific results or projects, as well as other topics which fall under SAC's missions, such as working environment, teaching or outreach. We intend to print all posters locally. Thus, we would appreciate if you could send a title by October the 9th, and the full poster (A0 pdf format) by October the 13th at the latest.

It is expected that all SAC members, from MSc level onwards, take part in the retreat, and registration is necessary. 

In order to fulfill this ambitious programme, the retreat has been extended to three days. Please note that we have arranged for a bus to take us from Aarhus to Skagen (departure from Aarhus University at 13:30 on Monday, and arrival in Aarhus at 22:00 on Thursday).

Looking forward to seeing you all in October!
