LCI Forum

What and Why? The LCI Forum is our biweekly meeting, at which we discuss LCI matters and group related issues, share AI and other news, and give brief reports from trips and conferences. An integral part of each LCI Forum is a research talk, given by LCI members, associate members, or visitors. Rumor has it, though, that real reason behind their popularity is the food. The LCI Fora provide a great opportunity for meeting other members of the lab, hearing about interesting developments, and finally finding out what the person working at the next desk is really working on ;-) The talks are also great opportunities to practice for conference presentations. Standard LCI Forum talks are 20min with about 10min for questions and discussion.

When and Where? LCI Fora run biweekly throughout the academic year and during most of the summer. In the 2006/2007 season we'll hold the forum in CICSR 146, the LCI meeting space, at 12:00 pm.
