Now that some of you have gotten somewhat skilled with the sword during the introduction weekend, it is now time to test your abilities with the bow and arrow.

This will take place on Monday the 6th of October.

It is highly recommended to come by bike since the shooting range is rather far away. We will be leaving at the Koningin Emmaplein around 18:30, so let’s meet there at 18:25.

eventually we will make our way here.

It is still possible to come by foot but it will take you some time to get there.

The prices are €7,50 for members and €8,50 for non-members. please bring this money in cash.

to participate you will have to sign up below.

At the end of September, Incognito will have this year’s Introduction Weekend! From Friday the 26th of September until Sunday the 28th of September, we will spend a weekend in a land far far away to get to know each other a little bit better and hopefully make a lot of bff’s 😀

This year, we have an awesome theme connected to it: Faction Wars! This means that you will be able to fight for your faction and earn valor and recognition.

The different universes that factions competing in Faction Wars will be from are:
-The Lord of the Rings
-Harry Potter
-World of Warcraft
-A Song of Ice and Fire
-Star Wars

Don’t worry about the entire weekend being full of role-playing, though; this is just the theme we decided to set the camp up with. The goal of the camp is to get to know each other and have fun! In this same spirit, there will also be no strange initiation rituals!

The price for this weekend is 30 euro for Incognito Members and 40 for non-Incognito members. You will be able to register for the weekend by going to http://www.msvincognito.nl/incognito/introweekend/ and filling out the form.

We still need cars to be able to get to the weekend! If you have a car and/or a driver’s license, let us know! Transportation costs will of course be covered by Incognito.

It is yet again time for one of the more important events of the year. The annual cantus has always been an event for building comradeship, making new friends and having a good drink.

So I advice everyone to train their beer-muscles and singing voices, because this is gonna be a good one.

the entry price is 15 euros. this will cover all the beer you will drink throughout the entire night. Of course it is always allowed to drink liquids that are not beer. This may or may not be frowned upon though…

The date will be friday the 16th of may.
The doors will open at 8pm, do not be late.
I REPEAT: DO. NOT. BE. LATE.

this year the cantus will be held at Studentencafe de Beurs at Spoorweglaan 6.

if you want to be a part of this experience of a lifetime, send an e-mail to taske@msvincognito.nl to reserve your spot. Act fast, as there are not a lot of places.

Block Openings Drink 5

As we are starting the last lecture block it is time for another drink to keep us going through the year.

This time however, De Twee Heeren will not be a vocal point of our drink. This time we will be having a pub crawl, visiting some of the other pubs in Maastricht, finishing off at De Twee Heeren.

we will meet up at the Sint Amorsplein at 8pm (mind you, that is half an hour earlier than normal). You will then venture around multiple pubs, returning at De Twee Heeren around 11pm.
The drinks at De Twee Heeren will work as usual. The drinks at the other pubs however will have to be bought separately with real money.

If you do not feel like participating in this pubcrawl you are welcome to join us at De Twee Heeren at 11pm (if we finish really early we will pop a message on the event page)

see you there!

DKE for Dummies: block 4

10003440_596743447076125_1981359846_n

Incognito is organizing the “DKE for Dummies” tutoring event.
The main goal of this event is to help out those of you who are struggling with the first year bachelor courses of block 4.

If you have any questions about Calculus and DSA then feel free to join us.

If you want to be tutor for this event, then please reply to the e-mail adres edukatie@msvincognito.nl or tell us on the FB event.
If you just want to attend, then also reply or join the FB event.

— >> Some more info:

>> Who will provide tutoring?
Other students, so mainly second and third year students.

>> How to:
– Beforehand, look up what you don’t know/don’t understand about the courses. Come prepared!
– Join us in the common room on Friday. Ask your questions, get answers.
– Future: kick ass at the exam!
Also, it would be very helpful for the tutors and yourself if you bring the book(s) of said course(s) you have questions about.

>> What this event is NOT intended fo
Quickly catching up on all the material of the courses because you were too lazy to keep up with it. Maybe there are tutors that would like to help you out with this, but it will take too much time if they would do it during the event. In that case, we suggest you make a personal appointment with the tutor on another day.

If there are any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

KafE: Will your robots do what you want?

1781891_596699500413853_1488174038_n

THE DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO WEDNESDAY THE 19TH OF MARCH

Incognito would like to invite you to the next KafE event with Dr. Pieter Collins.

A KafE is an informal event at a cafe where we invite someone to talk about a topic related to our studies at the DKE.
Pieter is one of the professors currently teaching and doing research at the DKE, you might have had him for Numerical Mathematics.

The title of his talk is “Verification of Cyber-Physical Systems: Will your robots do what you want?”

Imagine you are programming a robot to play in a football team. You spend a lot of time writing software and testing it under different conditions, but when the big day comes, the pitch is slippery and your robot keeps falling over when trying to shimmy past a defender and your team fails to score. Is this disaster something you could have anticipated using a careful mathematical model of your system and some snazzy computational analysis?

This kind of problem is technically known as “Verification of Cyber-Physical Systems”. A cyber-physical is one in which a digital-computer controlled devices interacting in the world of continuous physics, and “Verification” means that we want to know if it does what we want (under reasonable assumptions on the external environment), This is a big problem, and we are not particularly close to solving it. On the other hand, we can start putting some of the pieces together. This talk will be a whirlwind overview of some of the ideas involved.

Beer price: 1.25 euros

Pool

This time we need your aid in a quest to conquer all the pool tables in the name of DKE.

You shall be summoned on Tuesday the 25th of February to aid us in our quest. From 20:00 util 22:00 you will have to let loose all you’ve learned. All you can trust are your instincts.

To complete the quest one must bring an amount similar to 6 whole coins (these amounts are subject to change to the amount of guild members that will turn up to aid you).

Life or death… it will all be decided at Snookercentrum Maastricht Tongerseweg 46.

Bowling!

Are you ready to show off your bowling skills to your fellow students?!

Well, Incognito will provide you with the opportunity to do so! On the 13th of March, we’ll go bowling starting 20:30 till 22:00. This awesome activity will take place at Porseleinstraat 3, near the Brusselsepoort.
The costs are 5 euro per person. You will need to bring your UM-card for student discount.

If you want to register for this event, send an e-mail to aktie@msvincognito.nl (clicking Yes on the Facebook event is NOT sufficient!). Make sure to register on time, because there’s only a limited number of spots available.

See you then!
