Dear students,

The session takes place during the time slot of the Q&A session, that is, at 12:15 in HS 002.

Unfortunately, this room does not have a teams setup, so this session, as well as all the other Q&A sessions are in-presence only.
Therefore, we have already uploaded the slides with all the information that will be discussed in the session.

Any remaining questions can also be asked in our forum. The link for that can also be found in the uploaded slides or in the menu bar on the CMS.
