National Open Science Festival (11 February)
Editorial

A new year comes with new resolutions. How do you want to develop yourself as scientist in the coming year? Do you want to create more time to develop your skills? Or to narrow down the scope of your project, because of drawbacks in practicalities? Or to pitch your research in front of a camera, which SENSE PhD candidate Laura Piai did recently? This newsletter will help you to see new opportunities. 

For instance, what do you know about Open Science? The National Open Science Festival on the 11th of February 2021 is an opportunity to learn about the benefits of different Open Science practices. It will be the place to meet peers who are already working openly or who are interested to start. In advance, you can also join the Barcamp on the 14th of January 2021. In a Barcamp, topics of all sessions are determined on the spot. The online venue (Gather.Town) consists of an interactive 2D environment with virtual avatars, one big plenary room, several smaller break-out rooms, and space to hang out and socially interact with others. During the plenary sessions, anyone can grab the mic and propose a topic for a break-out session. Next, you can join any of those break-out sessions and get to work. 

Whatever your new resolution entails, don't hesitate to call on the SENSE network if you need any help. This network consists out of real people, who can often relate to your issues very well. To enhance the networking opportunities, SENSE staff is working on a new SENSE website, on which all SENSE PhD candidates will be easily findable, at least by subject. As you can imagine, our resolution is to continue to make the SENSE community more beneficial to all of you.

International conference on cohesive sediment transport, 14-17 September 2021
INTERCOH is the conference for research on cohesive sediments, which started in 1981 in Gainesville, Florida. In the last 40 years, INTERCOH has grown to the leading conference on cohesive sediments with a flourishing community. Since the first edition, the concept stayed the same: scientists and engineers share their passion for mud in an informal setting, with the aim to improving our understanding of the dynamics of cohesive sediment in the natural and built environment.
Abstract submission deadline: 31 January
