An ITS-Lab is a 4 hours event at the VU, hosted in the INTERTAIN lab, where students receive a lecture and do practical work on the same topic. Roughly comparable to a master class, but shorter and for a whole class.

Master class IMM
The IMM master class is highly desired, but a topic needs to be determined before we announce this to students. High school students apply individually for a day at the university. One topic is treated with a large focus on practical work. This master class needs to have links with business. Keywords; Web Science, the future of IT & business, impact of semantic web on society, requirements engineering, applications of ubiquitous computing, etc.
Staff members needed to create or contribute to the development a new masterclass. - Hans Akkermans(*) -

The Discovery festival is every year somewhere in september. The festival focuses on science, art and dance. It can act as a podium to improve visibility of the university/research group. Participating requires an interesting topic, where the essence is easy to understand. Some sort of interactive (fun) experiment or demonstration is required. http://www.discoveryfestival.nl/
