Brown Bag Lunch Schedule
The HCIL has an open semi-organized weekly "brown bag lunch (BBL)" on every Thursdays from 12:30-1:30pm in HCIL (2105 Hornbake, South Wing). The topics range from someone's work, current interest to the HCIL, a software demo/review, a study design, a proposed research topic, an introduction to a new person, etc. 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.
2013 fall, BBL 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. In doing so, Michael and Tak will take BBL student co-coordinator role.
To sign up for a session, send an email to BBL co-coordinators Michael Gubbels (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Tak Yeon Lee (email@example.com). In the email, briefly describe the topic and preferred dates.
We thank YAHOO! for its sponsorship of the HCIL Brown Bag Lunches.
