    The student card will allow you to have a reduced price in the ULB cantine, as well as cinemas and other places advertising discounts for students.
  • You will need an entry in the IRIDIA people page.
    Contact the administrator of the people page (currently Dhananjay Ipparthi, he will need your personal information a picture and a link to your home page).

    • Guests (if you are a visitor or a master student doing your thesis at IRIDIA)
    • Optimization Group (if your domain of research is optimization)
    • Robotics Group (if your domain of research is Robotics)

[edit] Notes

1. ^ a In order not to be submerged by spam, most of the lists accept posts only from email addresses that are in the subscribers list... meaning that if you subscribed to the Staff list with the address xxx@iridia.ulb.ac.be and try to send a message from your other addresses xxx@ulb.ac.be or xyz@gmail.com they will be discarded by the system.
If you have experienced such a problem, or want to be allowed to post from your other addresses, please contact the list owner providing the list of addresses to be added to the "white-list".
