Summary of Student Activities at VASCOG 2011, Lille, France

Coming together on Facebook!

Old and new arrival student members of the VASCOG came together in Lille and discussed about current and future activities of the student section. All the members agreed to be in closer contact and they made the VASCOG Student Chapter on Facebook.

Three student representatives rather than one!

The other good new in Lille was that the number of student representatives in the executive committee has increased from one to three showing the important role of students in this international society.
