Thursday Brown Bag Lunches (BBLs) will be transformed a bit to help increase engagement and strengthen ties in the HCIL community. There will be a wider range of sessions and each one will be organized a little differently than before. The BBL is the one hour a week where we all come together--thus, it’s a unique time for HCIL members with unique opportunities to help build collaborations, increase awareness of each other’s activities, and generally just have a bit of fun together with free food every week.

The HCIL has an open semi-organized weekly "brown bag lunch" where we eat and discuss something about someone's work or a topic of current interest to the HCIL. This might be a software demo/review, a study design, a proposed research topic, an introduction to a new person, etc. The hope is that these are light-weight and helpful enough so that you discuss things before they are decided.

We will meet Thursdays from 12:30-1:30pm in HCIL (2105 Hornbake, South Wing).

2013 fall, Michael and Tak take BBL student co-coordinator role.

""How To Participate"" To sign up for a session, send an email to BBL co-coordinators Michael Gubbels ( or Tak Yeon Lee ( In the email, briefly describe the topic and preferred dates.
