F-Event: A Student-Organized Student Conference

21 february 2022

On 19 February, the fully student-organized F-Event conference took place online. The conference served as a platform for fourth year students to discuss their theses and research developments.

F-Event is a student-organized conference for fourth year students to present their thesis ideas and work progress. The event is based on 3 principles:

  • Freedom
  • Feedback
  • Fun

The presenting students had the freedom to choose how they wanted to present their research work (in PechaKucha style, TED Talk or any other form) and types of feedback received from students and professors. Most importantly, the event was about having fun together while discussing research. The themes were devoted to a plethora of academic research fields. Depending on the domains the presentations were divided into streams and blocks. The research presentation themes included:

  • Adapting to the Aggregators: Taxi Drivers’ Interaction with Colleagues and Family
