Our purpose and policies
All posts to this blog are a reflection of the views of that particular author, not the CIDD Graduate Student Association as a whole. In order to keep discussion open but directed, any comments or opinions about a specific post should be directed to the author of that post, either publicly in a comment on that specific post or in private correspondence.
These policies are in place because this blog is meant to be a place for individual grad students to discuss and explore their own ideas, moderated by the CIDD Graduate Student Association as a whole, not solely a place for the CIDD GSA to collectively post about things already discussed by the group. Directing responses to specific posts at other graduate students involved with this blog is likely to be fruitless as they may not be familiar with the subject at hand.
It’s that time of year again – time to schedule our weekly journal club meetings.
I’m hoping to use journal club somewhat differently this year, and have it focus more on discussion about science and scientific tools (particularly programming and mathematical tools) as well as paper discussions. We can talk more about this at the first meeting.
To foster freer discussion, it may be nice to host journal club somewhere other than MSC. Potentially a coffee shop downtown, or the Rathskellar. Our first meeting, however, will be in MSC, where we will schedule people for journal club slots and talk about what people want to see from journal club.
Without further ado: http://doodle.com/q2t3cmmqryke54pk Please fill it out by Thursday, August 28th.
If you can’t make any of these times but would otherwise definitely come to journal club every week, please e-mail me.
