Back from Iceland: Women in Logic 2017

The workshop Women in Logic was a big success. Here we are at the end of the day of talks.

Ursula Martin took the picture and one or two might be missing from it, but the workshop really worked well. The talks were all well-presented and the material was very interesting. It helped that (at least) four of the ten presenters were just about finishing their phds, so plenty of new research to be discussing. 

The two invited speakers Catuscia Palamidessi and Claudia Nalon  were great and attracted extra attendance from the other workshops. Thanks for stepping in, girls! 

Also thanks to all speakers, participants and  the ones far away but cheering for us!

Now, we're hoping to do Women in Logic 2018 too. How can we improve on this year's workshop? Let us know of your suggestions!
