Checking the Bergen public library, I found some materials in Farsi as you can see above, such a peaceful environment!
Today we had Pecha Kucha,which is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights (PKNs). So cool and funny!
And finally the wrap-up session with annual reports, conference pics and laughs.
Thanks to IASSIST for giving me such a unique experience of scholarly communication with a taste of friendship!!
