One of the great things about conferences are the interactions outside of the academic programme.  Even though we're online this year, EuroSLA30 will be no exception!  

During the conference you will have the opportunity to contact your colleagues at any point just by easily searching their names on the attendees list, clicking on their picture/name, and sending a message.

You will be able to invite your colleagues to a room for a private chat or meeting (further instructions will follow soon) at any point during the conference.

Each evening will have an interactive social event for participants to take part in.

Wednesday 30 June: Research Speed Dating

Low stakes.  No heartbreaks.

On Wednesday night we will have a session of Research Speed Dating.  What does that mean, you ask?  Well, each participant will be matched at random with another participant for 5 minutes.  Take that time to find out who your partner is and what they're working on.  We'll have ice-breaker questions for you if you get stuck.  Then, after 5 short minutes, all participants will be randomly matched with a new partner.  This will be a great way to meet other EuroSLA members and will set you up for the rest of the conference - you'll already have some friends!  If you're hesitant, think about it this way: Worst case scenario: 5 boring minutes.  Best case scenario: Co-authored paper.

There is no limit to the number of participants for this activity, but we have a signup form HERE, simply because we have to organise things a little differently if we have 30 or 300 participants.

Thursday 1 July: The EuroSLA 30th Anniversary Celebration

Discover History.

This is the 30th EuroSLA conference, so we're having a party to celebrate!  We'll have some videos about the history of the organisation and conference, and then some food and drink related activities.

Get to know your association, join the EuroSLA 30 celebration!

Friday 2 July:

Who are EuroSLA's greatest know-it-alls?

In mix-and-matched teams, answer questions over 5 rounds to see which team will claim victory.  There will be prizes!

Even if you're not an ultra-competitive person, this will be a laughter-filled evening where you can get to know your fellow attendees, and maybe even learn something!

Often imitated, never beaten!
