Dagstuhl 15051 Day 2 - photo diary and notes

Adam showing the pattern matching prototype
 On the second day we continued working in our groups. Adam showed the first prototype, a pattern matching thing - he and parts of the group had been coding it the evening before while the rest of us had strolled about in oblivion (likely the game room.)

After lunch, all groups presented the work done. I found the presentation about research metods particularly interesting, discussing how we can improve the methods so that we can make a wider range of research work possible.
