ICE-TCS is proud to invite you to a mentoring session for students and young researchers of all ages held by Dexter Kozen (Cornell University) from 12:00 till 13:00 in room M208 at Reykjavik University. The session will be informal and will take the form of a Q&A with the audience, which will give everyone the chance to learn from an experienced and inspiring successful academic, who also happens to be a former guitarist, singer, and songwriter in the band "Harmful if Swallowed" and a keen sportsman.

Attendance is free and pizza will be served, courtesy of the School of Computer Science. However, in order to make sure that enough pizza is available, we kindly ask interested participants to register for the event by the 21st of April by registering here
