Saturday Sports: Badminton

Hello hello!

Every Saturday from 2 pm to 3 pm we have booked KTH Hallen for the rest of the semester. This week (Saturday 10th) we will play badminton. I will bring 8 rackets that you can borrow but we'll rent more if we don't have enough. We have four courts and we play for 1 hours.

I will try to vary the sports in the following weeks. And please come with suggestions for what we can do!!!

Everyone is welcome! The primary goal is having fun, not to play super competitively.

META closes for the Chapter Fair

Attention, all Chapter members!

META will close the 6th of February between 13:00 and 17:00 to make room for the Chapter fair which is organised by the Election Committee. This doesn't mean that it won't be possible to visit the hall, only that it won't be considered a study environment while it's closed. In other words, it will still be possible to heat food and fullfill errands in the afternoon. All members are highly encouraged to visit the fair as it's both exciting and informative. More information about the event will be posted soon in relevant channels.

Information about chapter mapping

Dear chapter members, here is a message from the KF-representatives.

KTH has decided to shut down Campus Södertälje and Campus Kista, and to introduce a new program, TINTE.

This means that THS will need to change how programs are mapped to chapters. The consequences for us at the Datasektionen are not yet certain but will likely be decided at the next Student Union Council.

More information regarding concrete proposals can be found here Note that the documents is only available in swedish

The proposals most relevant to us are:

  • Proposal 4. Move Cybersecurity from D to IN
  • Proposal 6. Reorganize D, Me, and IN into two chapters
  • Proposal 7. Welcome IN's original programs into the EECS chapters

If you have any thoughts, opinions, or questions; contact us, the KF representatives, at [email protected].

Our current stance is to maintain our current structure as it is.

No Wednesday pub this week!

Hello all dear! We're not arranging a pub this week - but don't fret - it'll be a maxxed out BLUMS-DROP-PARTY-PUB next Wednesday! Ticketes to the event will be released for DKM's yearly event for a maxxed out party at Häggvik's Beach Club!!

Don't miss it! More information about the event will be released this week in a separate post, so no stress!

Hope to see you next week instead!
