Our Club is an opportunity for engaging with colleagues in a context of curiosity, uncertainty, and depth. Come explore interesting and unpredictable topics that stretch your horizons! It is a place for anyone in the UIC community to explore ideas and research that interests them. Journal Club effectively invites our community to say, “This is what I am reading, this is what I am interested in, and/or this is what I am thinking.” We meet to discuss the various leadership journal articles or books we are reading and compare what we're each learning. (You choose your article--everyone is reading something different!) There are amazing transdisciplinary themes that thread through each book or article.
YOU DON'T NEED TO PRESENT ANYTHING....JUST COME, LISTEN, AND ENJOY THE DISCUSSION!!
With a vision to accelerate interdisciplinary research this committe started the club.
Computer Architecture, Parallel and Distributed Computing, and energy-efficiency computer designs
Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Knowledge Transfer
Signal processing and Optimization theory
This experience is meant to be informal, enjoyable, and intellectually stimulating. Journal Club is an opportunity to network with your colleagues from various schools, departments, and programs. Finally, Journal Club can be a platform for developing and improving teaching and presentation skills.
You don't have to present anything--just come and join in the discussion!! Each person who decides to present the article they're reading has up to 10 minutes to present. Please include the following in your presentation:
> What is the purpose of the reading and the apparent main focus of the article or book?
> What are your understanding of the article or book?
> What is your response to the author?
Please email the presentation and/or notes, as well as a pdf copy of your journal article or book chapter (if appropriate), to the Chirag Agarwal so that he can distribute it to other attendees.
Presentations are generally informal, and discussion is dynamic.
