Every year, the UT Austin|Portugal Colab program organizes the Future Places festival in Porto, Portugal. The first day of the festival usually starts with a research symposium where the program's PhD students (like myself) present the state of their work and gather feedback from their colleagues and the program's faculty. It is always a great opportunity to meet new and old friends and to learn about everyone else's research experience.
I presented the work done so far in dataflower, a condensed version of my research proposal, and some preliminary ersults of the need finding study I'm currently working on. I received some very good feedback and I'm definitely looking forward to participate again next year.
