Seminars are a necessary and enjoyable part of scientific life. We have at least one seminar every Monday afternoon, together with guest seminars when we can get them. This year there were 41 seminars in our lively series, with an average attendance of over 20 people. Of course we also gave seminars elsewhere, for bigger or smaller groups.
Attending international and national conferences is important for getting new ideas and new contacts and keeping up with developments in the field. And also, of course, for presenting our own work to an admiring world. This year we gave 12 oral and 4 poster presentations at fully reviewed international conferences. We also gave 21 presentations at national and non-reviewed meetings.
We visit our research partners and they visit us, but here we only list visits lasting over a month. We had guest researchers from Germany, Mali, and Serbia and one of our PhD students spent three months in Colombia.
Last, but definitely not least, we are very active in professional organisations, as editors of scientific journals, in programme committees for international and national conferences, as members of dissertation committees, and as evaluators of projects and for positions.
