April 2013

  • Central European BSD-Day 2013, Institute of Biostructures and Bioimaging, Naples, Italy
    6 April, 2013
    Watch out, another BSD-Day is rising: next April Beastie visits Naples to gather BSD people of Italy and Central Europe to meet up! This event is an excellent opportunity for BSD developers and enthusiasts to present their work to larger audiences, share their thoughts with their fellows and reach out for their potential partners. Traditionally, the event tries to avoid formalities as it does not require the speakers to submit papers or the attendees to register or pay an entry fee. However, the invited folks are encouraged to a give a brief talk on their favorite BSD topic. The goal is to motivate everybody, especially university students to see the benefits of our approach and take a chance on working with BSD systems.
