QSciTech journal club:
Time: Friday 27th July and Friday 10th of August from 13:00 to 14:00 pm.
Location: Multipurpose room
Purpose: To improve collaboration between members of QSciTech by providing a forum in which to share and discuss meaningful research in quantum science and technology.
- Takes the form of a shared lunch break once per fortnight.
- Opportunity for QSciTech members to share news and discuss current research.
- Each lunch is run by a chairperson, who is responsible for moderating discussion.
- Each QSciTech member is encouraged to present an item for discussion.
Acceptable Discussion Items:
Any respectable scholarly output on the subject of quantum science and technology. Examples of possible discussion items:
- Peer-reviewed journal publications.
- Accepted Master’s or PhD theses.
- ArXiv preprints.
- Talks and lectures (should be transcribed).
- Research blog posts.
- Corrections or retractions (look at retractionwatch.org for inspiration).
- Books or book reviews.
You are encouraged to present your own work!
