LOCATION:

Pratt School of Engineering, Duke University
Fitzpatrick Center - Schiciano Auditorium

MEETING AGENDA:

This will be finalized the week of the meeting.

MEETING FORMAT:

The format of the meeting will be based around groupings of 5-minute presentations by students and post-docs followed by discussion panels of CEINT faculty who lead research in the area. For all who attended last year, it will be very similar. These presentations are designed to highlight your primary research question(s), interesting findings, and next steps, and we strictly adhere to the 5 minute time limit with the philosophy that this is just enough time to provoke thought and let people know about your work so they can contact you for more information, while also allowing for a wide range of presenters across the center. We’d like to have as many students and post-docs present as are interested; if you are unsure whether you should present, please check with your faculty advisor.

In place of a poster session, this year we will be creating a book of 1-page research summaries as a platform for everyone to share their research throughout the center. This 2015 CEINT Research Summary Book, is accessible online and is intended to foster connections between people with similar or complementary research interests, both during and hopefully after the meeting. For this reason, we encourage all students and post-docs to submit summaries even if you are new, in which case summaries include planned research questions and next (or first) steps.

CEINT Scholar Steering Committee (CSSC) meeting will be held the afternoon of Wednesday, May 13th. Additional information on this portion of the meeting will be sent out at a later date.

TRAVEL:

Students and post-docs should check with their PI regarding travel and attendance.
