Brownbag Series


The Brownbag Series is designed for all faculty members/PhD students across all disciplines in NTHU CTM (but also open to other universities/colleges) to gather to present their research ideas/papers, to exchange discussions, and to have feedbacks. Free lunch will be provided. Each colleague/student can present her/his work for about 30 minutes about what s/he is doing or what s/he plans to do, and then I and other participating colleagues will provide our comments and thoughts. This is a good format to let all colleagues/students to know their peers in different departments, to cultivate friendship, to have more exposure to different research topics, and to receive some constructive comments to improve their work. Our plan is to have 1-2 presenters every time, and we will meet twice every month (if the demand is high, we can increase the frequency).


► We are calling for volunteer presenters throughout this semester (each presentation will be 30-min long). Please send your tentative title (and abstract) to pohsuanhsu@mx.nthu.edu.tw if you would like to present your work on the mentioned dates or for the rest of fall semester.

► Since we need to order lunch, we hope that you will let us know when you plan to join as audience, please send an email (with dietary restriction if any) 2 days before the brownbag date to: yt.huang@mx.nthu.edu.tw

So far, we have hosted/will host the following Brownbags:
