*Diversity, Inclusion, and Anti-harassment Workshop, on Tue 12.09
This workshop aims to promote a diverse, inclusive, and healthy work environment in IC. We are going to discuss some scenarios that are derived from real experiences. What if my colleague makes an inappropriate comment? What if a professor says something that makes people feel uncomfortable? What if I am told to work overtime and feel burned out? How can I find help and support?
*Cloud Research Day, on Wed 13.09
Join us for this exciting event sponsored by AWS and organized by LauzHack! Hear from researchers, sharing how they benefit from the cloud, and learn about use cases and funding programs from AWS experts. The event will close with a networking reception to connect with other attendees and speakers. Registration is required: https://go.epfl.ch/aws-cloud-sep13
