Prøst at Student Research Conference

In July, Peter Schwabe, who supervised my Bachelor’s thesis project, suggested to submit my work to the Student Research Conference . It then turned out that the deadline was the next day, so I had to work hard to convert 28 pages of thesis into a paper of 4 pages.

To my own suprise my paper was accepted for a poster presentation. It was very interesting and challenging to tell the people at the conference (which was at Tilburg University) about my research: I had a very technical story, and a lot of people in the humanities already are scared by the word “encryption”. Nevertheless it was a nice experience and I think I was able to get at least some things through to people.

I’ve updated my Prøst page with the published paper and the poster I presented.
