CHEP Journal Club

CHEP Journal Club

V1 (upto July 2010):
The aim of the journal club is to report/discuss recent papers in various journals/archives. It is held every alternate wednesday at 15:30 in the CHEP Lecture Hall (Lecture Hall 3 in the Physical Sciences building).
V2 (since July 2010):
(1) Every Member of CHEP is a member of the Journal Club by default. This holds for faculty, students and postdocs.
(2) Every Member is expected to make a presentation according to the schedule drawn up from the alphabetical list of the Members.
(3) In case, the scheduled person is unable to make a presentation, there will be *no* Journal Club that Wednesday.
(4) If anyone would like to present a journal club on any other day convenient to them, they should contact Gauhar/Sudhir. So please check your dates on the webpage.
(5) Once you choose a paper, please send your title and abstract to us, so that we can announce it on the webpage as well as send a broadcast e-mail.
(6) The talks will be informal with the duration anything between half an hour to one hour.
