Thank you!

The first GraduMeeting at our institute was a great success thanks to the wonderful presentations and interesting discussions. The organizers would like to say thank you to the entire institute (lecturers, secretaries, and students) for the tremendous support. We hope that you enjoyed the conference, and that some of you got some advice on how to tackle their final theses. We also hope that the GraduMeeting itself will become a tradition at our institute, and could thus continue to offer a platform for the presentation of final theses, and the vivid exchange between students of all semesters, graduates, and lecturers. Or, as Neil Gaiman once put it: “The action of turning a page, ending a chapter or of shutting a book, did not end a tale.”
