Who do I contact for support?
Which activities does LINXS support?
LINXS supports many different kinds of activities to further its mission and goals. These activities include (but are not limited to):
Conferences and Symposia - typically major events with 100+ participants, invited speakers and keynote speakers. Conferences can be arranged within themes or in collaboration with other parties. We do encourage our working groups that are planning conferences as a part of their activities to also apply for external funding if possible and/or to set a conference fee as appropriate given budget plans. We often provide discounted attendance for young researchers. Conferences typically average budgets of 150-250 kSEK in total, depending on length, speakers and number of attendees.
Workshops - Workshops are smaller gatherings, typically up to 100 people. They tend to be more focused on a specific topic or challenge. LINXS has a seminar room with capacity for up to 60+ people, incuding smaller rooms for breakout sessions or group work. A typical workshop has a total budget of 20-60 kSEK depending on number of attendees and invited speakers.
Hackathons - Hackathons are meetings that address specific needs-driven challenges in a set time. Typically scientists or users seeking solutions wihtin a given paradigm or discipline are matched wiith experts that can facilitate finding solutions to problem. These can be related to anything from experimental preparation and setups, to post-analysis and hardware/software design and use. Hackathons typically run for a week or two and have a budget of 80-100 kSEK per week. The number of participants is usually lower than a workshop, around 20-40 people.
