Reflections from the day:
The CIM-day was a wonderful occasion to learn about many things; from the complex connections between emancipation and economy to supermassive black holes. The picture below shows some of the participants in discussion during the coffee break.
As further inspiration, some quotes from the day:
-In CIM you can try anything!
-The effective population size of humans is about 30000. We are quite inbred.
-Applied or at least applicable.
-If you take something from reality you can give up. (About finite differences and geometry.)
-Assuming that a doughnut is not in the way.
-Say yes and try!
