Friday Research Workshops

Each Friday afternoon during the school year, the IDSc Department and the MISRC host Friday Research Workshops. These are discussion seminars for PhD students, university faculty and interested Corporate Partners that focus on new research and research-related topics. The presenter typically provides a working paper one week in advance. We post the paper online so that it is available for attendees to read during the week of the workshop. The workshops usually begin with presentations of their work by the speaker, followed by a lively discussion.

Professor Gordon Davis coordinated the Friday Research Workshops for many years, prior to his retirement. Ching Ren and Ali Mahdavi are the current Friday Research Workshop coordinators.

If you would like to present your research, please feel free to contact Ching or Ali.
