Brownbag Series


The Brownbag Series is designed for all faculty members/Ph.D. 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).  The upcoming schedules are listed below:


★ CTM Brown Bag Series is back here! 

★ Please register here in advance for this brown bag session so we could prepare lunch for you!
