Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Vijay Kumar and Wouter Waalewijn
The CTP Lunch Club meets at 12 noon in the CTP seminar room every Friday (provided that there are sufficient speakers). A light lunch will be provided begining at 11:50am (usually pizza, however some other options may be explored).
The seminars are designed for graduate students and should be accessible to all students. First year students are particularly encouraged to attend so that they may learn about research being performed in the CTP.
Workshops are aimed at teaching students about particular areas of research rather than presenting cutting edge research. The goal is learning, and to encourage participation, faculty are asked not to attend the workshop portion of these seminars.
Email notification of the club will be sent to the ctp-all, ctp-postdocs and ctp-students email lists as appropriate.
If you wish to speak, or have suggestions about speakers and/or possible workshop topics, please contact the organizer listed above.
