2nd SciPub

We had such a good time in the June SciPub that we decided to organize another one before summer holiday.
Thanks again to everyone who came and had a good time with us, to the RSG team for the organization, and FNR for the financial support.
See you after the summer break!


Basic MATLAB workshop

On May 23rd we organized our first basic introduction to MATLAB.

The attendees got an overview of what MATLAB is, got familiar with the interface and the functionalities, learnt how to perform basic calculations but also how to create their own functions and to plot results.
RSG Luxembourg thanks the lecturer, Dr. Andras Hartmann from LCSB, and all the attendees.

The constant interest of RSG members and of colleagues, students and support staff in the events we organize, is inspiring us to keep up our work, so THANK YOU!
