2013 Summer Retreat

The second annual retreat for COMPUTE took place 19-20 August, 2013, at Ystad Saltsjöbad. The theme for the retreat was "Science writing and publishing". The retreat was hosted by Dan Csontos (Elevate Scientific, former Editor of Nature) and his co-workers Geoff Marsh (former editor of Nature) och Tanja Jensen (expert on communication in life sciences).

The detailed programme is found below together with a group photo and the list of the top three posters at the retreat's PhD student poster competition - congratulations to winner Minchao Wu (Physical Geography)!
