    Student life brings a lot of stress and sometimes everything can seem so overwhelming. Every day’s clutter can obstruct the things that are actually important and modern technology can cause a lot of distractions. If you think you recognize this, Minimalism might be something for you! The popularity of the Netflix show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo shows that Minimalism is quite the rage. Minimalism can improve your health, reduce stress and, according to some, even make you happier. This lecture will be given by Anja from Minimalist Dutchie. In 2016, Anja parted with 75% of her stuff and started blogging about it. Today, her Dutch blog about minimalism and simple living has more than 10.000 visitors per month. In her 30 minute talk on June 13th she’ll discuss what it means to live life with the “less is more” motto – and why giving yourself the permission to get rid of things and re-defining your space will be life-changing. The language of the training is English and free lunch will be provided if you subscribe. So if you are interested in this topic, or even a bit skeptical about the bold claims, come listen to this lecture!

    Visual Exploration of large software structures Tim Bertholet will tell you about the application of Visual Data Exploration techniques while you are enjoying your pizza. Tim: “High tech systems are often supported by large software stacks, where a legacy of hundreds of man-years is not an exception. Evolving insights about architecture and techniques cannot be deployed in the complete stack continuously and immediately, which gradually results in inconsistencies between different parts of the stack. Visually exploring the structure and properties of the software (and other data like documentation and contributors) help making quick assessments and communicating about possible improvements. Sioux uses this and other techniques to keep the software in high tech systems maintainable and comprehendible across disciplines.” About the speaker Tim Bertholet is a software architect at Sioux. He has multiple years of experience in multidisciplinary teams contributing to and integrating with large software stacks, including lifecycle management. Sioux is an innovative technology partner that supports leading high tech companies in the development and manufacturing of their products. With 600 dedicated engineers in technical software, electronics, mechatronics and mathware they support or act as the Research & Development department of their customers.

    Hi culinairy miracles, GETAART is organising diner rouler, which you can join with a partner of your choice! The idea of diner rouler is that you create one dish (appetizer, main dish or dessert) together with your partner, and you fix a place to serve it (for example at your or your partners place). You will serve this dish to yourself and your partner and two other couples. The other dishes will be taken care of by other couples on other locations. This means that you and your partner will consume 3 dishes on 3 different location in the company of 2 other couples per dish, so 6 other couples in total! What makes this activity extra fun is that in just one evening you will be able to mingle with a lot of people, you can express all your culinary creativity and get inspired by the creations of others. We will make a schedule in which we mix up all the couples. And to ensure that traveling between dishes does not take too long, we would like to know where you will serve your dish. With the privacy law in mind we do not ask you to put this location on the website, instead we ask you to email this information to getaart@gewis.nl. The information will only be communicated to members of GETAART, it will only be used for the schedule and off course all the information on locations will be deleted afterwards.

    Dear members, On Tuesday 21 May, the Active Members Day will take place, and we will close this day of with a huge party! After dinner, from 9 O’ clock, the doors of the second FYC party will open at Café Sgt. Peppers. The ‘Gabber or Zwabber’ party is all in theme of gabber dance, gabber music and of course, gabber clothing! If you want to close this day with a huge banger, make sure to pay us a visit! Tickets will be sold during breaks and borrels at GEWIS for only €1. If you are unable to buy tickets beforehand, tickets will still be available at the door of Café Sgt Peppers, but at a higher expense of €2, so be sure to buy your tickets beforehand! So search your wardrobes, or even the wardrobes of your parents, and take the most colorful, gabber-like tracksuit possible to put on to this party to prove that you’re a real ‘Gabber’, and not a ‘Zwabber’! We hope to see you all there! Greetings, FYC Party 2

    Obviously, you don't want to start a quiz without the necessary BrainFood. As mentioned before, this year we have the possibility to have dinner at the brand new Café Hubble (Luna), where later the quiz will take place. Hubble offers the following menu: --- Daily Dinner Dish (DDD) (€5,50) --- Option 1: Kip Bonne femme (Chicken leg with potato, green beans, sweet pepper, mushroom and silver onion. Option 2: Vegetarian Carrot curry with coriander and coconut. Option 3: Fish stew Normandy with 3 kinds of fish and rice. --- Legendary Fries Indonesian Style (€5,95) --- French fries with salad, saté stick and saté sauce. For vegans it is possible to swap the saté stick to different kinds of veggies. After enrolling to this dinner list you still need to order your own food at Hubble; this list is just an indication for them how much ingredients they should buy, what keeps the prices low.

    As some of you might have noticed, Mgr. Meeles and Mgr. Keltjens had left the country a few weeks in the end of 2018. During their absence, Meeles and Keltjens explored the beautiful countries of Peru and Bolivia. Probably, most of you will be able to find both countries on the map, but presumable, most of you will not know much of the culture and the history of either country. Since we as a Fraternity are actively promoting (self)development, Meeles and Keltjens are willing to share the knowledge they have obtained during their travels abroad. We are willing to give you the chance to get a glimpse of what life in Peru and Bolivia is like, and maybe even improve your Spanish further than: “Hola supermercado de la bancos por aquí!” and “dos cervezas por favor”. Therefore, Fraternity “In Vino Veritas” will organise the Zuid-Amerimaand’lijksche borrel. This magnificent event will take place on Monday, the 13th of May, which, coincidentally, is the same week as the birthday of our wonderful queen, who originates from this wonderful continent, and will start at 17:00 in the “terraza en la azotea”. During this event, Mgr. Meeles and Mgr. Keltjens will take you along to the magical world of South America. We will let you experience South American delicacies, such as wines, cocktails, snacks and street food, as well as trying to convey some of the spectacular parts of their culture. We hope to meet you at this special event!

    Intelligent Microscope Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies evolve rapidly and successfully solve tasks such as object detection and natural language processing. AI gives software users the ability of a novel, natural interaction with applications. For example, users can talk to a software system to explain their needs and get direct response, rather than use a mouse or a keyboard to ex-tract and analyze information. Companies that develop modern software systems conduct research on how AI can be used and integrated into their software stack. This work describes how a prototype of an intelligent microscope (IM) was created. The IM is a software artifact. It is an AI-web system that can un-derstand predefined user voice-commands, control an electron microscope, detect objects on microscope images, and high-light specific objects requested by a user. The main motivation for the project was to explore and show possible ways of User-IM interaction. The IM use cases and software design are described in this report. The IM is capable of detecting and highlighting specific types of objects, such as cells and mitochondria. Also, it is able to interpret information about detected objects and show which of the objects are big, small, or relatively close to each other. These use cases provide examples of how the IM can be used. Even though these use cases are unique they do not limit the IM to mitochondrion and cell detection only, because one of the main implemented IM requirements is extendibility with other use cases in the future. The results of the project show how microscope control can be simplified using conversational interface, how image analysis can be improved using object segmentation, and how information about microscope image context can be interpreted using intelligent microscope knowledge database. Note: After subscription showing up is mandatory. You can unsubscribe untill the 8th of may 23:59.

    Dear members, As most of you will have heard by now: there is a new fraternity to be at GEWIS, namely Défi. Défi will be a fraternity that focusses on getting members out of their comfort zone and discovering new things by organizing activities. Therefore I am very very very proud to announce that on Monday the 29th of April, Défi will organize its very first activity! This activity is the Evening Eating Experience. An activity in which your taste buds will be put to the test to experience different food combinations without you being able to see them because you are blindfolded! There will be several rounds with food and beverages. Note that this is not an entire meal so make sure you have eaten something beforehand! The activity takes place at GEWIS, starts at 19:00 and will go on until about 22:00. For only 2 euros you can join this activity. We are very excited for this activity and hope that you will join us on the 29th of April. There are only 30 spots available so be quick to subscribe! However, we will work with a back-up list. So even if the list is full, make sure to subscribe! With lots of love, Défi

    Most of the world population live in deltas, coastal regions and river basins. Managing these densely populated and vulnerable areas is complex. With Enabling Delta Life as our motto, we closely collaborate governments, businesses, other research institutes and universities in The Netherlands and all over the world to work on smart solutions, innovations and applications for people, environment and society on these areas. As an applied research institute, the success of Deltares can be measured in the extent to which our expert knowledge can be used in and for society. For Deltares, the quality of our expertise and advice comes first. Over 800 people work at Deltares. With our projects, we aim at contributing to the creation, and consolidation of knowledge. We also believe that it is essential to share this knowledge to everyone, by for example making our software freely available. During our presentation, we will illustrate some of these activities and projects at Deltares, with special emphasis on topics related to mathematical modelling and software development, by using one of our most recent software solutions: “Riskeer." This application is an example of how scientific research meets software development, in this case, to maintain the water defense network of The Netherlands safe now and in the future. Note: After subscription showing up is mandatory. Unsubscribing is possible until the 24th of April before 23:55.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, Madames et Monsieurs, It is our great honor and pleasure that Fraternity "In Vino Veritas" can inform you that, after the enormous success of previous years, the I.V.V Etiquette dinner will take place again this year. During this evening you will be presented by the fraternity with a themed 4-course dinner. As you can expect from us, the necessary drinks (vin) will also be provided. During this 4-course dinner you will be informed about the codes of conduct during a dinner with, for example, your future employer or the King of the Netherlands. These standards of conduct will be taught to you by not one but two guests of honor. Mr. Van Beekveld will inform you about the etiquette that is used at the dinner table. Our second guest of honor is the one and only, world-famous Register Vinologist Mgr. Sanders, who will teach you the wine etiquette that is normally applied at a dinner table. This I.V.V Etiquette dinner will take place on Wednesday, April 24 and there are 24 places for any GEWIS member, other than the Fraternity. As the Fraternity expects a lot of interested parties, we hereby inform you that the registration list will open on Wednesday, 3 April at 13.00 hrs. We hope that you are just as enthusiastic about this activity as Fraternity "In Vino Veritas", and that we may greet you this evening. P.S. If, unfortunately, you are not among the first 24 registrations, don't worry. This year, just like last year, we will apply a draw in the unfortunate event that the activity is full within an hour. Priority will be given to members who have not attended last year.

    Dear members, We heard a little rumour that the Easter bunny is visiting GEWIS this year. He will not only bring and hide chocolate eggs, no no. He made an effort and will be bringing all the Easter snacks he can fit in his backpack. So to say, there will be food for many, but do be sure to bring a proper lunch yourself. The members of FESTIVITEIT will hand out these snacks on Wednesday the 24th of April during the lunch break at GEWIS! So, be sure to drop by GEWIS during the break of Easter Wednesday and enjoy some Easter snacks. Oh, and don’t forget to search for chocolate eggs, something special might be hidden in there. With festive greetings, FESTIVITEIT p.s. please be kind to the board and don’t search for eggs in the boardroom, there won’t be any there. p.s.s. please don’t trash GEWIS while searching for eggs.

    Subscribing to the NWS 2019 can be done on this website The National Mathematics Symposium 2019, themed 'Perfect Patterns', will take place on the 23rd of April 2019 in Nijmegen! The topic of this year, Perfect Patterns, will cover the use of symmetry throughout the world of science. Group theory is a common topic in the world of mathematics. Symmetry of objects and spaces can be perfectly described by determining the matching group, however someone might think that group theory is just a piece of mathematics. Perfect Patterns is aimed to give a broad spectrum of the practical use of symmetry and group theory in science. Lecturers with expertise in chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics will tell how they use symmetry in their field of work. So you might say that Perfect Patterns will show you the diversity of symmetry. When you have registered for the NWS 2019, please subscribe here as well so other members know you are attending the symposium so there can be made traveling arrangements.

    Simulation of Software builds There are many kinds of software builds. Some can be executed in a matter of seconds, and some will take several hours. When you have no idea how long it will take in advance or how you can optimize your environment, it is like a stroll in the dark. You walk around carefully and hope you do not accidently bump your head, because if you do, you might spend a long time recovering from your mistake. As Data Scientists at Itility, it is our job to shed some light on such complex systems in order to navigate through these dark mazes. We will give you a quick tour of what we do at Itility and how we help our customer to gain insights into their software build environment. We will illustrate two different mathematical models that generated proofed business value The queuing prediction model, which optimizes the execution time of builds The environmental simulation model, which exposes bottlenecks and helps with scalability

    25 percent of today’s youth spends more than 3 hours of their day on their smart phone, so it is quite likely that you know someone that might be addicted, or you may recognize some of the symptoms yourself. That is why TRAIN is organizing a lecture about smart phone addiction to raise awareness of this issue and also to give some tips that could help. The lecture will be given by Mariek Vanden Abeele, a professor from Tilburg, specializing in mobile phone usage in everyday life. She has studied phubbing, the ignoring of other people by being busy on your phone before and she has used data analyses to study smart phone usage within all layers of society. Free sandwiches will be provided by TRAIN at the start of the lecture. Subscribe now and we hope to see you there!

    Introducing a hybrid architecture in a large Java monolith About the lecture: A case study at TOPdesk: how we went from 2 releases per year to one release per day for our Monolith and multiple releases per day for our Micro services. We will touch on the cultural and technical challenges of introducing our hybrid architecture which enables our Monolith and Micro services to live side-by-side. How do you stay relevant as a software company? You must be able to react quickly to the market you are serving. Our big monolith caused us to lose a lot of agility, so we had to change our way of working. In this talk we want to share with you how we convinced the following stakeholders: Developers must adopt a new way of working. The Build team has to invest effort in a new infrastructure. Quality Assurance has to be convinced that a little less QA does not hurt. The Operations team will become responsible for a lot more updates, instead of just the two per year. Our communications department handles translations and release notes and must also Continuously Deliver. Product Management needs to be convinced to make room in their planning to spend time on a new architecture. Most importantly: our customers must not be scared away by our changes. About the speaker: Joep is a Build Master at TOPdesk with a keen interest in delivering quality software continuously. He loves playing around with Jenkins Pipelines, Selenium, Docker and keeps in touch with his inner developer by educating his colleagues on testable Java code. He spoke several times at Devoxx, Javaland, DevOps Days and GOTO; Conference. He was in charge of the tooling side of the migration to the Hybrid architecture. Roel tries to combine being a Continuous Deployment Advocate, Java Trainer and Security Specialist at the same time. He sometimes succeeds. Roel has presented several times at Devoxx and Javaland, presenting his Open Source project Lombok. His focus was on convincing people that a hybrid architecture is the way forward towards Continuous Deployment. After the lecture you are all welcome to have a drink with TOPdesk at GEWIS! Note: After subscription, showing up is mandatory. Unsubscribing is possible until Tuesday the 26th of March, 23.00h

    About me: My name is Levi Prikken, a second year master student Industrial and Applied Mathematics and active member of GEWIS, and I have recently completed my three-month internship at ING. I want to share with you my story as a student. I will show you what my project entailed as well as tell you how it felt to make the switch from academia to business. About the lunch lecture: More and more data is available nowadays, so it becomes easier to use this data to build sizable graphs. Due to the capacity to increase the volume, large-scale network analysis is becoming an appealing field of research. One of the questions asked is, how can one now extract useful information out of such a gigantic network? At ING Wholesale Banking all company transactions are represented in an immense network of more than 400 million edges. I have had the opportunity to analyse this great network, using a new Spark package called GraphFrames. My own research focused on what type of companies would have a significant influence on the network and why. To address this question, we first must know how to define influence in this context; and how it translates to influence in a real-life situation. During the lunch lecture we will tackle all these questions and I will explain to you how I have struggled through the exploration of the network, and its influencers, as a student. While doing so, I will also give you a better idea of how it felt like to start working at ING, when you have only experienced the university life so far.

    In the summer of 2020 Bacana (Brazilian Academic, Cultural And Noteworthy Activities) will organize the biennial study tour, this time to Brazil. We will, of course, visit universities and companies relevant for the study programs of our department. But that is not all! We are planning to visit some famous places like “Christ the Redeemer” in Rio de Janeiro and the Iguazu Falls. Also some city trips are on the planning concept, for example Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Salvador.* Since we want to share everything we are planning to do and how you can participate we organize an information meeting. During this meeting we will introduce the committee, inform you about our plans and the costs, and what you need to do if you want to join us to Brazil. The meeting will take place on the 21st of March during the break (12.40-13.15) in Luna 1.050. Of course there is also an opportunity to ask questions. You are allowed to participate in the study trip of 2020 if you are studying one of the programs of the Mathematics & Computer Science department of the TU/e in the academic year 2019/2020** and if you have obtained at least 60 ECTS in any program at the TU/e or any other university at the moment of enrollment for this study tour (which is in April). If you are not able to attend the info meeting please mail to bacana@gewis.nl and we will provide you with the information needed. *The mentioned activities are still conceptual plans. We mention these as an example of activities, and these do not represent the actual study trip program since we do not have yet decided on a program. **If you are graduating in the summer of 2020 you can ask the exam committee to delay your official graduation (according to the OER) such that you can still join the study trip.

    Ladies and gentlemen, The time is there! The opening of the subscription list of the Fraternity Gala! For a studying GEWIS member, the member contribution will be €90.-, for a non-GEWIS or a graduated GEWIS member, it will be €129.-. In return, there will be some gala preparing activities before and on Saturday the 16th of March, a ‘borrel’, a three course dinner, the gala itself, an overnight stay in the castle and a brunch the next day! Note that the gala itself does not have an end time, as long as you are partying, it is on! We can imagine that at this point in time, it might be unclear to you whether you will take a GEWIS date, or a non-GEWIS date, even though we request you to fill this out in the subscription list. We kindly request you to fill out what you expect on the 16th of March. We will give you the opportunity to change your subscription until the 1st of February. Time enough to send these blue letters! The 1st of March is also the payment deadline, so start setting money aside for this amazing event. Please indicate whether you and your date (or either of the two (not advised)) would like to go by bus to the location too. This will results into some additional fee, estimated around 10 euros per person. Also, we ask you to give permission to use your adress, such that we can send you physical mail. Of course this gala will be themed. During the coming months we will slowly reveal more and more of this theme. Perhaps there is already a hint on the poster at GEWIS! Kind regards, ATHENA, GEPWNAGE and “In Vino Veritas”, PS. In case you wish to change your preferences, unsubscribe and subscribe. There are a total of 280 spots, so there is all the opportunity! PPS.

    Our interconnectedness is as high as it has ever been. The internet, our cell phones, games, Skype –they have all contributed to the way we communicate today. Even though it is very fast, we still interact through some form of rectangular window. What if we wouldn’t be limited to those windows anymore? What if we could see and talk to our distant friends just by putting on special glasses? That’s what SocialXR (social extended reality) is about. Using virtual and augmented reality, we aim to bring people together in a photorealistic environment. Your friends are not represented as avatars, as with Facebook Spaces or AltspaceVR, but as real-time recordings of themselves. You just need consumer-grade hardware and you can visit your distant friends, in VR, whenever you want! I am Karim El Assal and I’ve worked at TNO since I received my master’s degree in Computer Science about a year ago. My focus is primarily on building proof of concepts, whether it is a gaze-based VR video player or an Android app that visualizes in AR what obstacles a car ‘sees’ in his surroundings. Relating to SocialXR, we – the Networks department of TNO – research what is necessary to support the real-time streaming of volumetric user captures. Do we simply need more bandwidth? Better compression? Or is it sufficient to minimize the amount of data sent over the network? What do you think? Note: after subscribing, showing up is mandatory!

    Christmas has hardly passed and I am already here to remind you that another big celebration is almost around the corner. I am of course talking about Carnival! Carnival is the time to drink beers together, to dress up in funny costumes, to dance around weirdly and to drink even more beers together! The perfect place to do this, is at the NooseTie pub-crawl in Eindhoven. During this pub-crawl I, Prins Romy d’n Urste, will take you to 15 different bars on Stratumseind, and in every bar we will have a beer (or wine, soda or Flügel). The pub-crawl will take place on Sunday the 3rd of March. The only thing you have to do, to make sure you can come along to this awesome pub-crawl, is to buy a regular tie (this is your ticket) on (http://stropdaskroegentocht.nl/kaartverkoop). After you have done this, you subscribe to this event, in order for us to know who is coming along on this pub-crawl. Then we can make sure that everyone picks up their tie at the same time. But order quickly, because the ties are sold out every year! See you then! Alaaf! Prince Romy I

    The Fraternity Gala is near, the menu is being set, the tickets have been designed and the band has been booked. "Wait, a band? Music?", I hear you ask, "Do I have to dance then?" The answer is quite simple: yes, yes you need to dance, but fear not! We are here to help those of you who have no clue where to even start. There will be three dance workshops, given by a true dancing queen. She will teach you all about the rumba and how to dance it with your partner! You can subscribe together with your date (or anyone else, although your date might get jealous then) and the best of all: these workshops will be provided free of charge! There will be place for 40 people (a.k.a. 20 duo’s). If you don’t have a partner, you can still join, however there exists a possibility that you will have to dance with someone of the same sex. The first workshop will start with the absolute basics, the second and third will assume some basic knowledge of the rumba, which is taught in the first workshop, but even if you couldn’t be there on the first evening, you are most welcome to join these workshops! Note: The training is meant for gala participants, if there are spots left, these can be filled up by people who don’t go to the gala.

    Imagine, you drive to the university or travel by public transport and then look for a place at the university to work quietly. Wouldn‘t it be nice to know how crowded it is at the moment of arrival? Or rather at the time of departure? Or even days in advance? With cloud services, we nowadays have a low-threshold use of smart services to make predictions. For this you need data, IoT is often a good solution here. You also want to bring this to the end user in a pleasant and efficient way. We are ilionx, a medium-sized IT consultancy company with more than 850 employees spread over 7 offices across the Netherlands: Maastricht, Eindhoven, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Groningen, Zwolle and Groningen. Each branch is divided into units and we have different specializations and knowledge: Java, .NET, cloud computing, business analytics, digital experience, dev-operations, interactive marketing and security. Open, collegial and informal are characteristics that describe the culture of ilionx. Because of all our specializations, we founded Q-LABS in 2018 to bring together the various departments and competences to realize smart and innovative solutions. Due to the parking problem at our office in Maastricht, the ‘parking solution‘ was created. A product where an end-2-end solution is built, where the competences BI, infra and development come together. Parts and techniques that we have used include Python-scripts to read camera images, multiple smart devices (IoT), cloud services (Azure), C # development, object recognition and a Xamarin app. Wondering how we did this? Come and have lunch with us on February 28 and we'll show you! In addition, Q-LABS has recently became open-source, so if you are interested in contributing to one of the above knowledge areas while enjoying a beer and pizza: you are welcome at our office in Maastricht! You can find us on github , find the projects with prefix ‘qlabs-‘.

    When Software Gets Serious Risk management in medical applications Software is everywhere, and this is also true in healthcare. Things like patient records, doctor’s appointments and medication prescriptions are all managed electronically through software, and almost all modern medical devices are controlled by software. Bugs in this software can have annoying consequences (an appointment is delayed) but can also lead to catastrophic outcomes, like the immediate death of a patient. This puts a heavy responsibility on the shoulders of everybody who is involved in the software development process. Given the fact it seems impossible to prove in advance a piece of software is 100% correct, how do we minimize the potential harm caused by our software? Using a newly developed and recently CE certified medical device as an example, Sioux software architect Jeroen Bouwens will demonstrate how risks can be managed. He will show elements like risk analysis, mitigating design elements and risk priority numbers and how such concepts are applied in practice.

    Deep Learning Deep Learning (or AI, if you like marketing): What's the technology that makes self-driving cars possible, beats us in Go and Dota2, detects payment frauds and is the core of China’s social credit score? Sometimes the hype is actually at least partially justified. At SIMON, we are specialists in Machine and Deep Learning, originating from ISAAC right here in Eindhoven. During the lunch talk we will explain what Deep Learning is, its relatively simple mathematical origins, how it works, what its limitations are, where it is going, how lots of people will (or won’t?) lose their jobs to it and how you might still save yours by getting on board the trAIn. About Erik Erik supports and guides companies in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), disruption, strategy and the latest revenue models. Being SIMON - a friend of ISAAC 's - managing director, he builds prototypes and practical applications which are rapidly deployable. Erik's mission is to make AI accessible for every company, whether your aim is to cut costs or to build the business of tomorrow. He holds a Phd in Computer Science from the University of Gent, and an experienced start-up entrepreneur.

    Blockchain (16:30 -17:00) In this presentation the following topics will be covered. General overview of blockchain Mining explained: how does hashing and the mining algorithm work? Private blockchains: how to validate private transactions without knowledge of the contents of a transaction? This presentation will give an overview of some of the components of the blockchain technology, both mathematical and software related, and will give some practical applications of the blockchain technology in the industry. Sensing Clues https://sensingclues.org/ (17:00-17:30 uur) Wild spaces are under pressure by all sorts of illegal activities, ranging from poaching to illegal trespassing, logging, grazing, charcoaling, mining, waste dumping, and many other threats to nature. As most nature reserves are simply too extensive, and boots on the ground too few, to continuously guard and monitor the entire area, timely and actionable information about (potential) incidents is of the essence. Actionable information, also called intelligence, starts with registering and analysing the daily observations of rangers and befriended allies that work in the area. They see and hear many things that can be used to fuel situational understanding. However, many Wildlife Protection Organisations lack the proper tools to collect these observations with ease and to translate them timely into preventive action plans and briefing instructions. Sensing Clues’ mission is to turn wild spaces into safe havens. We do so by developing and making available the Platform for Wildlife Intelligence, aimed at supporting the collection, analysis, and sharing of actionable information for wildlife protection. As a partner of MarkLogic we invited MarkLogic to tell you all bout this project(Wildlife Intelligence) and the techniques that have been used. And we will tell you all about the opportunities for you! SynBier (17:45 - end) At the end of the evening we would like to get to know you while enjoying a SynBier. We brew our own SynBier, see the website for more information. https://www.synbier.nl Note: the lecture will be in Dutch

    Ladies and gentlemen, Are you skilled at misleading others? Do you have the most hard to read facial expressions? Or are you simply the most legendary poker player around? If any of these apply to you or you just enjoy playing poker, you’re in luck. Dispuut “In Vino Veritas” and Fysisch Dispuut Hawking organize a multi-round poker tournament in which you can put your skills to the test. The game of poker started as a simple game to pass the time on ships played with only 20 cards. Later poker was influenced by the British’s 52-card deck that we are used to today. Eventually prohibited by the British due to poker being a game of chance. The success of poker in modern times is mostly due to the Americans filming techniques. The point here being, poker, just like the most elegant vintage wine, has aged well. Where the stigma of hidden dark rooms somewhere in the back has long faded, poker still preserves the thrill it always has when making a risky move that could possibly net you a fortune. On the contrary, one miscalculation could lead to your own demise. Reading your opponents, who bluffs, who only plays safe and who is willing to give you their money, is vital to making it in this game of wits and chance. This tournament will put your skills to the test not only against familiar opponents; if you prove skilled enough and make it to the finals you get to play against Van der Waals members as well. During the qualification round at GEWIS, Fysisch Dispuut Hawking will be dealing the cards at our tables, as true professional croupiers. During this evening some players will emerge victorious and be set with other equally skilled players. Eventually the best players are allowed to move on to the finals. These people will represent GEWIS and have the task to ensure the trophy is added to the GEWIS collection. In the finals the best players of GEWIS will be seated at poker tables together with the best players Van der Waals has to offer. When you’re out of chips you’re out of the finals. If you’re doing well, you’ll be moved to a better table. Eventually one player will have outsmarted all his opponents and will win the trophy for GEWIS or Van der Waals. During both evenings snacks will be provided and the tactic of buying your opponents slightly too much wine might actually be viable. For only 5,- euro’s you can enjoy up to two evenings of playing poker. You get the thrill of taking your opponents’ chips, making risky moves netting you the victory and getting to know another association better. All the while being provided with snacks and being able to complement these with as much wine as you want. Eventually, if you do well enough you could be the one having the honour to win GEWIS the golden trophy! The final will be played on February 18th at 18:00!

    Industrial Control System (ICS) security assessment Imaging you have to hack an industrial site, factory, ship or powerplant to assess the security. How would you do this? In this presentation, I’m going to guide you through the process, thoughts, decisions and the experiences of performing this type of test. You will find that in the field of Industrial Control System security, maybe more than anywhere else, best practices differ from reality. This is usually due to the stringent availability requirements, which in turn, are an important factor during our assessments. The presentation will mostly revolve around pictures we took, screenshots of attacks and is by supported war stories. At the end of the talk, I hope will have a better idea about “how things go in real life” and how a day outside of the office can look like. Note: After subscription, showing up is mandatory. Unsubscribing is possible until Wednesday the 6th of February, 23.00h

The problem can be solved in any programming language* you are familiar with, as you only need to submit the solutions. To test your setup a judge will be made available a few days in advance that will grade a test problem, so you can practice for the contest, check if you have everything setup ~and debug our judging system~. Signup is free and in teams of 2 to 4 persons. Bring your own laptop and don't forget the associated charger! We'll provide a power outlet and some snacks for during the contest. * We do not recommend the esoteric languages from last year's EEAPC but feel free to try.

    Analyzing x-ray scans of cargo trucks We are Data Scientists from Atos. Within our work, the focus lies on analytics projects with the goal to obtain useful information and actionable insights out of raw data. One of our projects revolves around the subject of image recognition. The purpose of this project is to research what possible methods can be implemented to apply image recognition to the customs check of cargo truck x-ray images. In this presentation we would like to take you with us in our process of extracting useful information out of raw data, in this case the cargo x-ray images. We seek to answer questions like: How do we locate the container in an image? How full is the container? How many goods can we identify in the container? We will show you the problems we run into during an image recognition project and the solutions we find in techniques such as feature extraction, edge detection, pattern recognition and texture segmentation.

    Selling yourself is often more difficult than it seems. You don’t want to come across over-confident, but not too modest either. You only get one shot at a first impression. The goal of this training is to take a look at your Personal Brand. For example, we will discuss topics to help gain insight into: - How to present yourself. - What are you good at? - What makes you unique? - What distinguishes you from your peers? The training will be provided by Brunel and will be given in Dutch. The training requires a minimum of 15 attendees.

    Departure Time Optimization in Vehicle Routing Optimizing departure times in vehicle routes is a crucial step in developing good vehicle route schedules. In practice, restrictions such as time-dependency resulting from traffic congestion, driving and working time legislation, and multiple time windows make departure time optimization a challenging scheduling problem. On top of that, vehicle routes are often interdependent, due to, e.g., trailer swaps between truck/driver combinations. This increases the complexity of the problem, since optimizing the departure time of a single route may disrupt the schedules of dependent routes. In this talk, we illustrate these challenges through several examples from practice. An important observation hereby is that departure time optimization is not only done to reduce costs by better utilization of resources, but is also required to find feasible schedules with respect to driving and working time legislation. Finally, practice does not allow complete freedom in planning waiting times or breaks in vehicle route schedules whenever it improves the overall cost. For example, planning early breaks to consume some inevitable waiting time is only accepted in practice if a reasonable amount of time has passed since the previous break. These limitations should also be considered in solution methods for the departure time optimization problem.

    Ladies and gentlemen, Fraternity "In Vino Veritas" will be turning 15 years old on the 9th of December, and we would like to celebrate this with you! And as this is also starts our third Lustwijn, this DW will not be an ordinary Decadent Weekend, but it is the Decadent Weekend Lustwijn Edition! In celebrating this third Lustwijn, the Decadent Weekend will be more luxurious than you already expect from us. There will be a Friday evening activity, a fancy Saturday afternoon activity, a lustwijnworthy multi course dinner and it goes without saying that we will make sure that there is always more wine than one can possibly consume! As there is a Friday afternoon activity, we expect you to be at the location at 19:00 for dinner. This implies leaving Eindhoven at 18:00. Make sure you are available then! Furthermore, we have got an additional question for you this year. We would like to find out whether or not you would appreciate a Sunday activity. Therefore, we ask you to choose whether you would not like an activity, a small one or a lengthily one. Note that this is only to check your interest, which the Fraternity will use to make their final decision. As this year is our Lustwijn Edition, there are more spots available than ever before! Especially for you, I.V.V has arranged 30 beds in a lovely castle, providing exactly the decadent amount of luxury needed! Make sure you are ready to subscribe, as Fraternity In Vino Veritas expects much interest! The I.V.V Decadent Weekend will take place during the weekend of the 7th upto and including the 9th of December. When one is subscribed after the 23th of November 2018, 16:00, one obliges oneself to paying for the entire weekend. No refund is given. Yours sincerely, Dhr. T. Meeles Ab-Actis der Dispuut "In Vino Veritas" Ps. Please fill out your allergies, whether or not you have a car at your disposal and your interest in the Sunday activity. Pps. If the list is full, make sure you still subscribe to ensure we contact you if spots have come available.

    Waarde lezer, Zoals menigeen van u wellicht zal weten is dit jaar getekend door het derde lustwijn, beter bekend onder de noemer “lustrum”, der Dispuut “In Vino Veritas”. Nimmer heeft een jaar zo driekleurig mogen zijn, zo decadent, zo Bourgondisch, als dit jaar waarin Hèt Dispuut uit zijn metaforische vestje heeft mogen scheuren en alle anciënnistische maatstaven doorbroken heeft. Het is een ware overwinning voor het studentenbestaan! Hiertoe dient opgemerkt te worden dat studententijd zonder studeren ogenschijnlijk tegenstrijdig is. Kortom, er moet gestudeerd worden! Nu kunt u, zoals menig Lid, zich toeleggen op een vakgebied zonder enige vorm van theoretische noch formele scholing. Gelukkig bevindt zich onder de leden van Hèt Dispuut een levende legende die zijn academische carriere een vinologisch vervolg heeft gegeven. Gehoor gevende aan de vele verzoeken die Hèt Dispuut heeft gekregen in de afgelopen jaren, zullen wij een wijnproeverij, onder leiding van Register Vinoloog Mgr. Sanders, organiseren. In tegenstelling tot de Maand’lijksche Borrel waarin u de godendrank in grootse getalen naar binnen kunt laten vloeien, zal deze avond gekenmerkt zijn door indringende vinologische verfijning. Het zal avond worden waarin u de wijsheden in de wijn zal kunnen ontdekken. Natuurlijk kunnen wij het niet over ons hart verkrijgen om deze avond alleen beschikbaar te stellen voor de leden van GEWIS. Daarom is het voor mij een genoegen aan te mogen kondigen dat iedereen aan de proeverij kan deelnemen! De proeverij zal plaatsvinden op 5 december 2018 om 19:00 in de gecombineerde ‘De Weeghconst’ en In Vivo, met dank aan de gastvrijheid van W.S.V. Simon Stevin en SvBMT Protagoras. Er is een kleine kanttekening: de locatie kan ten hoogste 120 man aan. Dit betekend dat er gebruik zal worden gemaakt van het onderstaande toelatingssysteem: 1) Er zijn 40 plekken gereserveerd voor GEWIS-leden, in volgorde van inschrijving. 2) Er zijn 10 plekken gereserveerd voor stafleden, in volgorde van inschrijving. 3) De overige 70 plekken zijn ‘vrije plekken’ en worden ingedeeld in volgorde van inschrijving. De inschrijving voor de wijnproeverij zal opengaan op 12 november 2018 om 12:00 en kan via gewis.nl/activiteiten. Hopende u allen te mogen ontvangen voor deze legendarische avond, verblijf ik, Namens Hèt Dispuut “In Vino Veritas”, Dhr. Meijaard Vice-Praeses

    Automated reliability testing of a medical device Most of us have experienced unreliable software. Your smartphone crashes or your car navigation does not respond. Annoying situations, but try to imagine that you hit the brake pedal of your car and nothing happens. In these examples the functionality typically works fine, but just not always. This is what software reliability is all about. In this talk Bryan Bakker will describe a case study of a medical X-Ray device that had several reliability issues. Dedicated test cases have been developed to measure the reliability of the product and to provide the developers with the information needed improve the software. Hardware interfaces of the system were used to control the software of the device. The management was able to use the insight in software reliability to steer the project in the right direction. About the speaker After receiving his master’s degree in computer science in 1998 at TU/e Bryan Bakker has worked as software engineer on different technical systems. About 15 years ago Bryan has specialized in testing of embedded software in multidisciplinary environments. As a test architect at Sioux Embedded systems Bryan focuses on test automation, reliability testing and design for testability. Bryan is also a tutor of several different test related courses and a frequent speaker at international conferences. Note: After subscription, showing up is mandatory. Unsubscribing is possible until Monday the 3rd of December, 23.00h

    On Wednesday, it is time for a real-time murder game, where you create the mystery... and try to get away with it! You could be one of the murderers, trying to eliminate specific targets, steal objects, or just kill as many people as possible without being caught. Or you could be one of the detectives, who can only win by locking up murderers, but who lose when they arrest someone innocent. Or maybe you are just trying to abuse the chaos and confusion in order to fulfill your own, completely different, goals. Either way, chaotic fun is guaranteed! Oh, and don't worry: we have special roles for those who get knocked out of the game :3 We will start at 19:00 @ GEWIS, and don't forget to subscribe!

    Because SCIFI has ceased to exist, some skilful and super nice older members have set up a new committee to have a bearpong tournament. However, this is with a different structure! There is room for 17 teams that are divided into groups. In the pool phase you can plan your own matches with the other teams and then execute them, the score must be passed on to the committee. The best two of each group go through to the knockout night but later more about that. TL; DR In the pool phase you pay your own beer and you plan your own matches.

    Modern applications have much strict requirements for uptime and response time than several years ago. At the same time, dramatically increased volume of the processed data that led to a higher load to infrastructure. “Reactive Systems” is an architectural paradigm that helps to build robust and scalable distributed applications and thereby solves these problems. The lecture will cover principles of the Reactive Systems approach and will show how they helped in the implementation of “Pronto” – a tool for portcall optimization developed for the Port of Rotterdam. About CodeStar: We are the group in Ordina which specialisation is full-stack Scala-development and data engineering. We are experts in functional programming and building of applications for near-real-time data processing

    About the lecture: Blockchain is all the hype. But how does it work? How do we get started? During this event we will (try to) find the answers to these questions. After a brief introduction to blockchains in general, we will visit a full stack of blockchain development. Our choice of technology here is the Ethereum platform combined with the Truffle Framework for smart contracts. Using Quintor's Truffle Box for Angular (https://github.com/Quintor/angular-truffle-box), we will visit writing and deploying smart contracts. We will dive into the Truffle Framework, showing how to interact with these smart contracts from a Dapp. All of this will be done at the hand of a live demo and useful code snippets. About the speaker: Pim is a junior consultant/software developer at Quintor. Currently, he is teaching the Minor Blockchain at Hogeschool Rotterdam. Additionally, he is working on StudyBits, which aims to provide an international blockchain solution for storing diplomas, using the Sovrin ledger. Before this he finished his MSc Applied Mathematics at Delft University of Technology. He co-authored "TrustChain: A Sybil-resistant Scalable Blockchain", which has been published in Future Generation Computer Systems. His other responsibilities include building a development stack for Quintor’s future blockchain activities on the Ethereum platform. Note: After subscription, showing up is mandatory. Unsubscribing is possible until Monday the 1st of Oktober , 23.00h

    Cyber security is about protecting your computer from whoever wishes you harm, or wants what you have. But rarely do we know exactly what we have, and how to protect it. Ruben ten Hove, Cyber Security Innovator at TNO, will talk about automated discovery within IT infrastructures, and automating security decision making for such infrastructures. TU/e master student in mathematics, and our own GEWIS member Tim Meeles, will also take part in the lecture. He is currently doing a graduation internship at TNO. He will tell you about his experience at TNO as an intern, as well as the possibilities he got to finish his master there. His research focuses on determining an optimal routing policy for a driver encountering an incident on the highway. He bases the predictions for the incident duration on real Dutch highway traffic data, gathered by TNO and Rijkswaterstaat.

We will start this activity unofficially at 12:30 with an information lunch for the freshmen about firstyear committees. After this, everyone (sjaars or not-sjaars) can join at 13:30 for the pubquiz. We will end this at 16:00, after which we will enjoy a beer at the Spanish Borrel!

    Beloved Ladies, Gentlemen, GEWIS-members, mathematicians and computer scientists, Many students shall find this year’s academic dawn be tragically underwhelming and recognize that of which I will speak. For those who have never entered the university grounds until next Monday, allow me to elaborate on a tradition, for an academic community is intertwined with traditions and habits. One such traditions is to start the academic year with a tremendous festivity during which alcohol claims the Markthal as its dominion and reigns until morning light. Unfortunately, our Board of Directors has put a pitiful end to this delightful practise. This tragedy cannot be tolerated by Hèt Dispuut “In Vino Veritas”, therefore it is my absolute pleasure to announce that Hèt Dispuut will be opening the academic year properly on coming Tuesday the 11th of September. Additionally, this Maand’lijksche Borrel will initiate the lustwijnjaar of Hèt Dispuut, hence it will feature a traditionally excessive amount of bubbles. A remarkably attentive reader will notice that this is indeed not the first Tuesday of the academic year, which is correct and completely on purpose. The first week of any quartile cannot possibly be considered academic, with its syllabus introductions, logistical explanations and repetition of non-assumed but present pre-knowledge. Hoping to welcome all of you on September 11th, I remain, With appropriate regards, Dhr. Meijaard Vice-Praeses der Dispuut “In Vino Veritas”

This will cost you €100,-. Since this will not be an easy spot to reach with public transport, we will be carpooling to the location. It is roughly an hour away from Eindhoven and we will need cars for this. The group will be split up into two groups, one morning group and one afternoon group. Since it may not be clear yet for you what your planning for the 31st of August will be, we will be mailing you later for your preferences. We will be drawing lots since we expect the activity to be full rather quickly. The activity list will be open for an hour after which the draw will commence. We will inform you within a week whether or not you have been selected. People that can supply cars will take precedence to make the carpooling as seamless as possible. When we arrive the groups will be split up once again, into the groups that will actually jump out of the plane. To get an impression of what the jumping will be like, you can watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwiCT1yl9-c This event will be sponsored. This sponsor will be present throughout the entire day to talk about their company. There will also be a lunch lecture, where both the morning and afternoon groups will come together to eat the lunch provided by us. We hope to have informed you sufficiently of our activity. Should you still have questions you can always approach either Daniël or Jealy for questions or mail to fyc18-1.62@gewis.nl Kind regards, FYC18-1.62
