The ICSA Sessions

The ICSA sessions offer a regular opportunity for ICSA members and friends to get together and chat in an informal environment.


We meet as scheduled below, on Thursdays at 4pm, in Mini-Forum 2.

Each session will have an event slot of no more than 30 minutes, followed by a chance to sit and talk, over food and drinks (ICSA supplies nibbles and some cold drinks, bring your own hot drinks). The event part can take many forms, but here are some suggestions:

  • a high-level overview of your research area
  • a presentation about yourself, or where you're from
  • an accessible, 'superstar' research talk on video
  • a game or quiz
  • a demonstration of some skill (can you juggle, can you play something?)
  • anything at all really

One 30 minute slot can house several items, according to length.


If you would like to offer an item for the event slot, or to help with preparations (fetching and setting out cake and drinks) please get in touch with Murray Cole.
