Hello and welcome to the final Pre-workshop blog post!
That’s right, the daily blog update for this phase of the project has reached its final post. From now on, the blog will change its role, acting from Monday onwards as a summary of what has happened during each day of the workshop.
On Monday we are all meeting from 09.15 in/outside room MB3202. That’s on the 3rd floor of the main building. You can take the lift or use the stairs on the sides of the building. The stairs in the Atrium won’t take you all the way to the 3rd floor.
There’s just one update to inform you about regarding the exciting prospect of lunches… the plan is to have the University provide the catering for Monday & Tuesday, while the rest of the week we can decide (the day before) on some external catering. Some suggestions for this include Subway Platters and Dominoes Pizzas. We’re sure you can come up with others too. While we do have a budget for providing lunch, it’s not vast, so be realistic and, sadly, we can’t spend it on alcohol… so that rules out a group visit to Weatherspoon’s for a Beer & Burger!
On the Monday, lunch will be provided in MC2113B (the place we met on Tuesday before the pub) at 13.00 and will be a cold buffet. Tuesday’s lunch is an upgraded warm buffet (which is usually pretty decent) and will be served in MB3203 around 13.30.
We are going to provide kettles, coffee, tea, sugar and mugs so we can remain hydrated and focused. We will also try and provide fresh milk but if you have any special requirements (such as a dairy-free diet), could you please bring in your own substitutes.
Now that the important things have been sorted out, use this weekend to have a quick break before co_LAB start’s properly, but please take a few minutes to contribute to the task you were set on Wednesday. It’ll make Monday far more productive.
We’re all looking forward to getting started!
The co_LAB team
