    Willpower! A lot of students might recognize it; procrastination. When you really want to study, but you can’t seem to set yourself to it. When you feel like you have so much to do but you can’t get it done. Sometimes your to-do list is so overwhelming that it can lead to stress and even a burnout. To help you prevent this, TRAIN is organizing the workshop ‘Willpower!’. This training will be about setting priorities (what do you want to do?) and about motivation (how do I get it done?). Having willpower is something you can learn! Good news for anyone who would like to have more willpower. Whether it is your studies, sports or any personal goals, with more willpower you can achieve more. Having more willpower can help you achieve goals that are important to you! The workshop Willpower! will give you an introduction to the psychology of willpower. You will learn what it is, how it works and how to deal with pitfalls. We discuss pitfalls, such as the so-called ‘what the hell effect’, the ‘halo effect’ and the ‘restraint bias’. In addition, we will discuss strategies to develop your willpower. You will learn how to increase your energy, how to prevent willpower 'leaks' and learn strategies to be more effective at achieving your goals. So, do you want more willpower for your study, less Facebooking, workout more often, eat healthier or something else? Then you are most welcome! This training is given by professional trainer Imre Végh from Project Wisdom. About Imre Imre is an international trainer, discussion leader and (team)coach in higher education, politics and development aid agencies. He worked with many politicians and members of parliament, development organisations in Uganda, Laos and Vietnam amongst others, for commercial companies and many universities such as the International Space University in Strasbourg, the Honours Programme at the University of Groningen, Nyenrode Business University and students of the University of Beijing. His passion is personal leadership, meaning, ethics, critical thinking and effective communication. He brings out the best of people in a disarming and an inspiring way. He likes to ask probing questions, challenge assumptions and analyse arguments, all aimed at growth and learning. An idealist in heart and soul, he likes to use his critical mind to better the world. Critical when needed, humorous when possible. He likes to connect heart and mind. Imre is married and lives in Utrecht. He is passionate about space travel, chess and botanic gardens and cannot wait to tell his toddler son all about it. There are only 24 spots available. Remember: if you subscribe but fail to show up without a good reason you will have disadvantage the next time you subscribe for a training with a limited amount of spots.

    Vanderlande delivers material handling solutions, including systems that automate complete warehouses, which can be extremely large. The size and complexity of these systems make them impossible to test in real life. Imagine having to move 200 000 trays every time you need to redo a test. Within Vanderlande we solve this problem by building an emulation model. During this lunch presentation we will explain how our emulation model is built. Furthermore, we will discuss some other interesting developments within Vanderlande The emulation model is built with Java and OpenGL. We’ll be discussing some of the technical challenges we’ve had to overcome, and of course our solutions to them. To facilitate our work, we’ve also implemented a DSL (domain specific language), which helps with modelling components typically seen in a warehouse or baggage handling system. We will use that to give you a general feeling of what we do on a daily basis. This lecture will be given by Rick Hendricksen (Senior Software Engineer & old GEWIS-member) and Dennis van den Berg (Product Owner) Note: After subscription, showing up is mandatory. Unsubscribing is possible until Tuesday the 10th of February, 23.59h

    An In-house day is the ultimate experience to see not only what a large company such as IMC does in the trading business, but to also broaden your horizon in the search for your future career. Note that there are only 20 spots! If there are more than 20 subscriptions, Master students will be favored over bachelor students. About the In-house day During IMC’s In-house day we will challenge you with an assignment to help you see how your skills apply to financial markets. Together with two of our traders and/or engineers, you will play a trading game –a perfect opportunity to better understand how much fun it is to work at IMC. We will play the game using Python. We will also use the opportunity to tell you more about trading and technology at IMC. Feel free to ask us all your questions about our business, life at IMC and more. Program 11:15 Arrival 11:30 Welcome presentation 12:15 Lunch 13:00 Trading presentation 13:45 Tech presentation 14:30 Trading simulation 17:30 Pizza, drinks and announcing the winners of the simulation 19:00 End of the program About IMC IMC is a leading global market maker, using algorithmic trading and advanced technology to buy and sell securities on multiple trading venues worldwide. We provide liquidity to the financial markets, driving efficiencies for buyers and sellers. We operate globally from offices in Europe, the US and Asia Pacific. Our employees work closely together in multidisciplinary teams, making our success possible. Technology - At IMC, technology is not a department, it is at the heart of everything we do. Our technologists push the limits of possibility, and then look beyond. In our fast-paced environment, short feedback loops mean projects worked on in the morning can enter production the next day. Trading – Although our traders come from many backgrounds they all have one thing in common: they are at their best solving complex problems. Their insight into global events, market shifts and pricing ensure we are trading in the right place, at the right time. Everyone is welcome but this In-houseday is aimed at Mathematics students and Computer Science students with an interest in algorithmic thinking and complex problem solving . Note that the travel to Amsterdam will be arranged, the departure times will be communicated later.

    After last year's success of the Alexa workshop, Ortec Finance is back with a new workshop, Game of Homes! In the Game of Homes, your team poses as Ortec Finance and will advise a struggling housing association which risks bankruptcy if nothing changes. It is your job to come up with a strategy involving rent policies, renovations and more. The housing association must remain financially healthy while fulfilling core goals like low rents and high sustainability. Your ideas are scored against economic scenarios provided by Ortec Finance. Beat your opponents, become the best consultant and win the Game of Homes! You will implement strategies as formulas within programming code, but we set up the case such that you do not require extensive programming experience (although it can certainly help). The workshop involves some basic econometrics and computational modeling. Note that there is a maximum of 20 participants!

    The case will guide you through the steps of an ASML metrology engineer trying to diagnose the issue with the new wafer heating correction model. You will be learning about the model’s purpose and inner workings, studying machine measurement data, and proposing experiments in an attempt to pinpoint the problem and fix it. About the case After two years of intensive study and development, you proudly present your new and improved software package, meant to suppress wafer heating effects in ASML’s new 140 million euro scanner. Just in time, too, since the scanners are about to be shipped to customers. And then, after one week of use, it turns out not to work. This happened to us a time ago, and led to a frantic and broad search for the root cause of the problem. During the investigation, we had to consider not just the software, but also the software’s relation to the surrounding mechatronic system, and the basic physics involved. The wafer heating student case is based on our records of this period. The case will guide you (in teams) through the steps of an ASML metrology engineer trying to diagnose the issue with the new wafer heating correction model. You will be learning about the model’s purpose and inner workings, studying machine measurement data, and proposing experiments in an attempt to pinpoint the problem and fix it. But don’t forget! The customer is already using the machine. You’d better hurry, because as always, time is money! Using a ‘choose your own adventure’ style game, diagnose a design problem in the interaction of the wafer heating feed-forward functionality. The game is played in teams which compete with each other to see who solves the problem while spending the lowest amount of ‘effort’ points. Schedule: 14:00 Introduction 14:30 Case 16:30 Wrap-up 17:00 Pizza at GEWIS This case is suitable for both mathematics and computer science students!
