Torbjörn Nordström, Informatik: More seminars and more seminar attendants?
Despite the fact that there is an interest for seminars, last expressed by many persons at our department days in Strömbäck in August, we have relatively few seminars at our department. The intellectual content in all different parts of our activities are well worthy to be presented and discussed in seminars. Doing so will contribute both with much needed information and inspiration to the whole department, as well as an opportunity for feedback to the presenter. On this we seem to agree, but with the possible exception of PO’s pedagogical seminars, we have very little information about the articles (for journals and conferences) and books we write, the research and development projects we conduct, the applications we produce, the ongoing PhD student projects, the ideas we elaborate; just to mention some of the things that may be obvious grounds or reasons for a seminar. It is not good if we cannot find time to tell our colleagues what we are up to at the moment, nor time to listen to what our colleagues want to tell us. Is there anything that could be done about that? Can we improve our seminar activity? That is the topic of this seminar.
